About Us

The Teachers’ Resource Centre (TRC) is the first of its kind, non-profit organisation in Pakistan that empowers teachers by investing in their professional development.

Established in 1986 in response to the declining standards of education across the country, TRC is thriving today because of the generosity of its donors and funding agencies who believe that our children are our future and that the best learning environment we can provide them is one that has well-trained, committed teachers.

TRC has been actively working for the last 33 years to train and empower teachers from both the public as well as private sector; it is an acknowledged leader in the fields of teacher training and Early Childhood Education (ECE).

We believe that every teacher can have a transformative effect on her students if she is committed to continuous professional development and realises the vitality of her role in children’s lives. TRC educates teachers on the importance of student interaction and parental engagement, layout of classrooms and the use of relevant resources to support teaching.

Additionally, we design and develop easy-to-use teaching and learning materials that are readily available, provide tailor-made solutions for learning problems and extend technical support to government as well as private schools.

Core Values

Our enduring qualities and shared convictions that we bring to teachers’ professional development and early learning are a fundamental strength of our work. We believe that the Centre should be held to a set of principles that ensure:

The Child
TRC’s focus is improving children’s learning experiences in the school environment. We are committed to this concept in its totality.

Challenge
To stretch towards challenge and accept challenge as part of our daily working life.

Communication
To be open and honest in our communication, and to share whatever information we have which can be of benefit to each other, and the organisation.

Confidentiality
To maintain confidentiality of information, in relation to organisations and individuals that we work with on behalf of TRC.

Creativity and Innovation
To be innovative in our approach, in order to create new ideas which will enhance the child’s learning experience.
