APSCHE to train teachers in districts

Faculty in majority of colleges are not even PGs in their respective subjects
Nasscom and other reports indicate that not more than 20 per cent graduates are employable

HYDERABAD: Concerned with poor quality of teachers and lack of training for them in both conventional and professional courses, the A.P. State Council of Higher Education (APSCHE) has hit upon a new idea of taking training to the doorsteps of teachers.

The APSCHE itself will bear the expenses and take the trainers to the districts. “Teachers don't show the inclination to come to the State capital for training programmes due to lack of resources, interest and sometimes non-cooperation from the college managements. We hope conducting training programmes at their places will generate interest,” said the APSCHE chairman P. Jayaprakash Rao.

Senior faculty has been engaged to work out modalities on training on subjects that need immediate attention and the areas to be covered. Prof. Rao said engineering colleges will also be roped in for support as it was in their interest and very survival. Similar programme was launched for degree colleges in the districts and it received positive response. So far 20 such training programmes were organised in nine districts.

Declining quality

Officials are worried over the declining quality of teaching with the Nasscom report and other industry surveys indicating that not more than 20 per cent of graduates are employable and this is directly related to teaching quality and facilities.

Mushrooming of colleges and talented people not opting for teaching career is the prime reason for shortage as well as quality. In fact, faculty members in majority of engineering and management colleges are not even post-graduates in their respective subjects. In some colleges fresh B.Tech pass out candidates are teaching and those who gain bit of experience leave the moment they get a job in the industry.

Officials say teachers in professional colleges are expected to get into research but here they are not even capable of teaching. As per AICTE norms, for every 60 seats, engineering colleges should have seven faculty members consisting of one professor, two associate professors and four assistant professors. The overall ratio of teachers should be 1:15. Out of the 700-odd engineering colleges just above 10 per cent maintain those norms.

JNTU Hyderabad Vice-Chancellor, D.N. Reddy said that JNTUH needs 20,000 teachers but there is a shortage of 3,000. Among them less than 1,000 have Ph.Ds. He says some colleges are finding it impossible to get quality teachers despite their willingness to pay salaries as per UGC norms.
