The Teacher's Lab is an education and research initiative, under the aegis of Relief Foundation, with the primary intention of participating in and supporting teacher development.

The teaching fellowships offered through The Teacher's Lab provide young adults the opportunity to couple intention with informed action.

The foundation believes that an aspiring teacher's good intention, capacity for creativity and innovation function best when there is a solid base of pedagogical understanding.

The three-year fellowship for teaching students up to 12 years comprises one year of pre-service training and practice teaching in the Montessori approach. This period includes a monthly stipend.

Training will be followed by years in a classroom during which time Fellows will have experienced mentors to support them.

Teaching Fellows who want to work with the 6th-8th standard age group can opt for a one-year Teaching Fellowship which includes four weeks of pre-service training and one year of teaching.

These Fellowships are restricted to the teaching of English and teaching of Science.

The Foundation invites applications from individuals who have seriously thought about teaching or who want to become teachers. A strong interest in a subject is an added requisite.

The intake process for the Fellowships involves a test of essential skills and an interview.

Application deadlines for the three-year Fellowship: May 10, One-year English/Science Fellowship: April 30.
