Prime Minister Imran Khan will inaugurate “TeleSchool”, a national broadcast education channel of the Ministry of Federal Education and Professional Training, on April 13.

According to a statement issued by the education ministry on Sunday, the channel TelesShool would be aired through a beam provided by the Pakistan Television (PTV). The purpose of TeleSchool is to mitigate any effect on learning of students due to coronavirus pandemic and ensure that learning continues during the summer vacation until May 31, as announced by the education authorities earlier.

The channel will broadcast carefully-developed content for class 1 to 12 from 8am to 6pm every day. The content has been aligned with students’ learning objectives for major subjects of the curriculum prevalent across the country. The content has been sequenced by officials from the Federal Directorate of Education (FDE). Some digital educational content development platforms provided support on a pro bono basis.

The channel TeleSchool, to be broadcast by PTV, will be available on satellite, terrestrial and cable networks ensuring that 95% of Pakistani population is able to access the content.
