Chief Minister’s CM Rise


Organization : Peepul


Location : Madhya Pradesh


Project Description

Chief Minister’s CM Rise is a flagship programme conceptualized and led by Peepul, with the Government of the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh, reimagining and strengthening the government school system, through holistic teacher professional development of the 320,000+ teachers across the 110,000+ government schools of the state, impacting 95+ Lakh students in the state. It was launched by the Government of Madhya Pradesh on 1st May 2020.

The programme takes a concerted approach, to evolve systems to equip teachers and officials with the skills needed to navigate the post-COVID world and deliver teaching-learning, leveraging blended training, professional learning communities, mentoring and monitoring to provide need-based and contextual support to them.

An exemplar Public Private Partnership, the programme brings together state and national government bodies, private organizations, non-profits and international foundations to enable impact. This includes the Department of School Education, Govt. of Madhya Pradesh, DIKSHA – the national teacher learning platform of the National Ministry of Human Resource Development, the National Informatics Centre (NIC).

CM Rise aims to reform the wider government-led teacher training ecosystem to build the teacher’s resilience & capability to respond to the crisis, in the process inculcating the culture of lifelong learning for teachers as a function of the education system. It further builds the digital teacher training ecosystem in the state. We look to:

  • Equip teachers and education officials with the skills and knowledge required to support children effectively through this COVID crisis
  • Create an ecosystem of continued development for teachers, that is personalized, need-based and supports societal and academic goals; building an aware, capable and resilient teacher workforce for the future


Some salient features of the learning modules that are part of the CM Rise program:

Content: Bite-sized, practical, modular training courses created on high-value and relevant topics (ex. role of a teacher, helping children make sense of the COVID pandemic, psychosocial support to children, teaching digitally), which take best practices of ‘real-world’ trainings.

Dissemination: Using a structured dissemination channel, on commonly used & easily accessible media (e.g. WhatsApp) to reach all the 270,000 teachers across the state with a toll-free helpline for Q&A to provide immediate support to teachers.

Technology platform: Leverages existing government IT platforms like Diksha, to host the training courses with Open access to all teachers in alignment with the government’s strategy for quick replication.

Impact Measurement: Conducting periodic pre- and post-tests to determine absorption of content, as well as in-built course assessment.
