  • Since


At Centre for Intrinsic Motivation( CIM), we see teachers as integral towards achieving the goal of SDG4. We aim to instill education systems with the Read more hope and belief that there is no challenge that an intrinsically motivated teacher cannot solve. We collaborate and partner with government systems and other organizations to cultivate their intrinsic motivation, which seeks to ensure inclusive and equitable education towards transforming the education system. Over time, we have expanded our activities into three states (Delhi, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu) to reach more than 1.8 lakh teachers and 47 lakh children.


Lack of motivation in teachers and officials is a constant challenge to sustained teacher professional development programmes in India. Teacher training and programmes have not had a sustained impact on student learning because those responsible for implementing them (teachers and officials) were not intrinsically motivated to do so.


Support governments to build a highly motivated teaching workforce and strengthen their capacities to promote quality of learning in schools. Establish communities of practice (CoP), mentoring processes and skill development for officials to support teachers. Co-design programme with system partners to foster local ownership. Design based on evidence-based change mechanisms and processes. Use peer collaboration, feedback, support and reflective practice to promote behaviour change

Demographies Served


We work with state education systems at scale. We promote behaviour change for teachers and officials by creating and sustaining teacher networks, reflection and feedback, leading to sustained impacts in student learning. Our approach has led to improved student outcomes and effective teacher training. Our work reaches 150,000 teachers and 4.7 million children.


  • Education Programme

    In Delhi, we are delivering the Teacher Development Coordinator programme in partnership with the Delhi State Council of Educational Research and Training (SCERT). Working since 2017, this programme covers every secondary school across all 11 districts of Delhi.

    In Karnataka, where we have been working since 2018, we are a named partner of the Department of State Educational Research and Training (DSERT) to deliver their ‘Kalika Chetharike’ learning recovery programme across every primary and upper primary school in the state.

    In Tamil Nadu, where we also started in 2018, we have recently signed a long-term memorandum of understanding (MOU) to work with Samagra Shiksha as a knowledge, implementation and management partner to provide assistance to state-level teacher professional development across every primary school in the state.
