After 12th, the rules of four-year B.Ed courses have been issued by the National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE). NCTE started two new courses. The government has revised the first notification of these courses.
So far, DLAD was essential for teaching from pre-primary to primary level. It was compulsory to have B.Ed degree for teaching the upper primary to secondary level. Meanwhile, NCTE announced the introduction of a four-year Integrated Teacher Education Program (ITEP). While issuing notification, NCTE also sought applications for recognition. Meanwhile, the process was stopped for some reason.
Now the government has issued notification while amending the Act. One ITEP course will be required to teach from pre-primary to primary level whereas the second ITEP course will be required to teach from upper primary to secondary level. The duration of both courses will be for four years and will be admitted after 12th standard. Graduation will not be required for these courses.
50 seats in each college
According to the notification issued by the NCTE, one unit for ITEP will be of 50 seats. The institute with BEd-MED will have to prepare 500 square meters of land and 400 square meter building for this course. For any new institution to run this course, courses like BA, BSc, BCom will be available along with this course.
For that, they have to purchase at least 3000 square meters of land. This standard is only for 50 seats. A college can take more seats than this, according to which the land and building limits will increase.
50 percent marks in 12th standard
For admission in ITEP, the student will get admission in 50th percentile basis in the 12th standard. These Criteria will be less for the reserved category students. The student must complete this course in a maximum of six years. Read more posts…
