Top Rated BEd Colleges To Go Out Of NCTE Regulation

The Human Resource Development Ministry is aiming to overhaul teachers’ training in the country. Thus it has announced that the bestt-rated Bachelor of Education colleges will be left out of the regulatory regime of the National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE).

“Best rated colleges (five star rated) will go out of the regulatory regime of NCTE. They will be recognised and accredited but the usual inspection will not happen,” said Secretary, School Education and Literacy, Anil Swarup. NCTE will start ranking teacher training institutes and aims to put out the list of top 100 institutes by January next year.

The Goal

–First is to see all the BEd colleges existing only in name should not be recognised for the purpose of imparting education

–Evaluate each of the colleges that have submitted their affidavits and they have five sets of ratings

–Idea is the best rated of college will only have to furnish documents and there will be no other control thereafter

“Annually they will furnish documents. They have worked out a criteria to come to that conclusion (ranking),” he said. Swarup was talking on the sidelines of the Transforming Lives Through Education and Innovation-cum-Education Excellence Awards 2017 organised by ASSOCHAM.

Website for NCERT

He also mentioned that NCERT is coming up with a website in the first week of August where private schools could place orders for NCERT books. “If you look at performance of schools where NCERT books are subscribed, the pass percentage is much better than the rest. Through the website we will seek orders from such schools so that advance preparation is made and entire supply chain is managed and books are available on time,” he informed.
