The Kendra Pramukh Academic Leadership Programme (KPALP) was successful in demonstrating an improvement in the skill levels of cluster resource coordinators (CRCs), which were tracked on a skill matrix. The programme was implemented at scale, across the state of Maharashtra, exclusively through government functionaries, helping to change the perception of the CRC cadre within the education system. The KPALP has been one of the few programmes that has been consistently being implemented in the state and this can be attributed to the programme’s inherent capacity to effectively respond to changes in environment, including the COVID-19 pandemic school closures. KPALP has also been recognized as a best practice at the national level and the state KPALP team, including UNICEF, was invited to participate in a consultation for the formulation of new national guidelines related to cluster resource coordinators.
