ncte norms for b ed college


The National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE), in its previous status since 1973, was an advisory body for the Central and State Governments on all matters pertaining to teacher education, with its Secretariat in the Department of Teacher Education of the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT). NCTE has its headquarter at New Delhi and four Regional Committees at Bangalore, Bhopal, Bhubaneswar and Jaipur to look after its authorized responsibilities. Regardless of  its commendable work in the academic fields, it could not perform essential regulatory functions, to ensure maintenance of standards in teacher education and preventing proliferation of substandard teacher education institutions.

The National Policy on Education (NPE), 1986 and the Programme of Action there under, anticipated a National Council for Teacher Education with statutory status and necessary resources as a first step for overhauling the system of teacher education. The National Council for Teacher Education as a statutory body came into existence in development  of the National Council for Teacher Education Act, 1993 (No. 73 of 1993) on the 17th August,1995.

The main objective of the NCTE (National Council for Teacher Education)  is to achieve planned and coordinated development of the teacher education system throughout the country, the regulation and proper maintenance of Norms and Standards in the teacher education system and for matters connected there with.

The consent given to the NCTE is very broad and covers the whole gamut of teacher education programmes including research and training of persons for equipping them to teach at pre-primary, primary, secondary and senior secondary stages in schools, and non-formal education, part-time education, adult education and distance (correspondence) education courses.

 NCTE is enabled to perform the assigned functions including planned and co-ordinate development and initiating innovations in teacher education, the NCTE in Delhi as well as its four Regional Committees have administrative and academic wings to deal respectively with finance, establishment and legal matters and with research, policy planning, monitoring, curriculum, innovations, co-ordination, library and documentation, in-service programmes.

Bachelor of Education is popularly known as B.Ed which is the one of the most famous course among the students in India. If you wish to become a teacher B.Ed degree is must. There are several good colleges in India which offers B.Ed course.

Teachers play a very important role in a student’s life. It’s a teacher who guides a student through his or her in their academic career. So it is very much important to be adequately equipped with resources that will create the teacher an ideal role model to the students. To achieve this, D.ED, B.ED or M.ED courses were introduced, which will teach a person about teaching and the different attitudes associated with it.
