The program aims at training school teachers in innovation, entrepreneurship, IPR, design thinking, product development, idea generation, among others.

During the event, Dharmendra Pradhan said, "The teachers and students who will benefit from this program will solve the problems of tomorrow."

“The School Innovation Ambassador Training Program should not be limited but the teachers from across the world should be part of this ambitious training program in future. This program will considerably enhance the knowledge, creativity, and innovativeness in our students,” he said.

Union Tribal Affairs Minister, Arjun Munda said that the School Innovation Ambassador Training Program was very unique and important for Tribal Affairs Ministry run Eklavya Model Residential Schools for ST students.

“The Ministry of Tribal Affairs will work in close coordination with the Ministry of Education in implementing this program in its letter and spirit,” Munda said.

Trained teachers will become mentors and guide these young students to pursue innovation and entrepreneurship in line with the Education Policy (NEP) emphasis on nurturing young students for problem-solving and critical thinking at the school level.
