Teacher Training at Primary Level to be boosted

Starting from 2015-16 academic year, teacher education in the country will see far-reaching changes with the implementation of professional courses in the field. Emphasis will be laid on teacher education in relation to pre-school and elementary education.

Speaking on the sidelines of a conference held here on 21st February Santosh Panda, chairperson of the National Council for Teacher Education, observed that time has come to professionalize teacher education in the country.

"From 2015-16 academic year, a two-year diploma programme in elementary teacher education, four-year integrated course in teacher education and a three-year integrated B.Ed. and M.Ed. courses will be introduced. For the diploma courses, the eligibility is Class 12," he said.

He lamented that there are no adequate trained teachers to teach pre-school and elementary students. "It is the need of the hour, to bring in diploma or other programmes that exclusively concentrate on elementary education. For the admission into these programmes there will be an entrance test. Besides, we will offer specialized courses that incorporate constructivism approach," he added.

With the mushrooming of the unchecked teacher training institutes across the country, the Council will frame new regulations to enhance the quality of institutes.

The state is known for the highest number of teacher training institutes.

"As on today there are about 16,000 training institutes in the country. For instance in Andhra Pradesh there is a surplus in the number of training institutes as against the demand. From 2015-16 academic year, the regulations framed by the Council will become binding on the state and the Central governments to ensure the quality of institutes before granting no-objection certificate," he pointed out.
