Integrated Teacher Education Programme
The Union Minister for Human Resource Development, Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ throughout a Lok Sabha session on Monday, July 08, 2019 informed about steps taken by the authorities to enhance the coaching profession in India. The Central Government has brought a four-12 month’s Integrated Teacher Education Programme (ITEP) for pre-provider training, to provide commencement in Primary and Secondary Education. The packages inside the program have been invited given that June 03, 2019. The ITEP will be conducted through the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) and National Institute of Educational Planning and Administration (NIEPA), in all states and union territories.
Initiatives are taken by way of the important authorities to improve the great of schooling:
1. The Central Government has released an Integrated Scheme for School Education – Samagra Shiksha, from 2018-19 which subsumes the erstwhile centrally sponsored schemes of
Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA),
Rashtriya Madhyamik Shiksha Abhiyan (RMSA)
Teacher Education (TE).
Under Samagra Shiksha, finances are given to all states and union territories for various interventions to enhance the first-rate of training such as schooling of in-carrier teachers, headmasters and principals, remedial coaching for academically weaker students, provision of library grants to faculties, ICT and virtual projects, strengthening of instructor training establishments, Rashtriya Avishkar Abhiyan, Padhe Bharat Badhe Bharat, and so on.
2. In order to focus on a great education, the critical rules to the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education (RTE) Act have been amended to include a reference on elegance-wise, situation-smart getting to know outcomes for all fundamental classes.
The National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) carried out a National Achievement Survey, beneath which mastering effects of students have been evaluated, via a district degree sampling and gaps had been identified.
3. The Government of India can be taking part inside the Programme for International Students Assessment (PISA) to be carried out via the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) in 2021.
4. Approval has been given for undertaking a Census-primarily based audit known as Shagunotsav of all government and authorities-aided schools in all states and union territories. Further, in 2019-20 approval has been given for carrying out a School-Based Assessment (SBA) of all essential level college students, to evaluate getting to know effects.
5. The online DElEd course changed into commenced from October 03, 2017 and nine, fifty-eight,513 teachers have successfully finished the training.
6. MHRD has designed 70 indicators primarily based matrix Performance Grading Index (PGI) to grade the states and union territories. To accumulate well-timed and accurate facts, an Educational Management Information System called UDISE+ (UDISE plus) has been released in 2018-19.
7. In 2019-20, approval has been given for putting in place kids and eco-club in all government colleges throughout the united states. In order to experience and have a good time the rich cultural range of India and to inspire experimental learning, Rangotsav changed into prepared in schools in 2018-19.3) Immediate restructuring of board examinations: should probably start with in depth instructors’ education for Grades 9 to 12 to transport the pedagogy closer to greater analytical and open-ended teaching-mastering patterns. Indeed it’ll stay a less than perfect system because this type of pedagogy will no longer have been practiced in the earlier grades. But it’s far absolutely vital to do away with the modern-day fascination with a couple of preference questions and keyword-based answers.
4) Recruitment and schooling of instructors: this is the hardest one to clear up because a capable pool from which teachers may be recruited is truly too small. My revel in trainer choice committees suggests that the best of candidates who are interviewed is abysmal. Not too many humans are interested in becoming college instructors given the unsure running situations and tenures, as well as the extraordinarily low salaries in maximum private schools; even in government colleges, whilst the income is respectable, temporariness seems to be standard. There seems to be little incentive for aspiring teachers in rural areas and small cities to put money into a 4-yr B.Ed degree whilst their likely monthly payment maybe a few thousand rupees. If these troubles aren’t addressed via regulation and unique recruitment drives to hire smart people, then there’s no possible solution.
