Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan, an autonomous institution under Ministry of Human Resources Development, Government of India, has been a pioneer in the field of school education since its establishment in 1964.
Training of teachers and non teaching staff is an integral part of the organisation. Every year, thousands of employees are provided with refresher training programmes. It is not an exaggeration if it is stated that KVS is the only organisation in the school education system where thoroughly planned courses are held on a regular basis. In the year 2008 alone more than 200 training programmes were held at different venues all over India.
Keeping in view of the pivotal role of training for employees and to further augment the efforts, a focused approach was felt necessary. Accordingly, one Zonal Institute was established at Gwalior in November 2002. Zonal Institute Mumbai came into existence from 1-4 -2003.
