Although there is an opportunity to study this course in every part of the country, the main target is the students from rural areas.
The central government took the initiative to create BEd training and then jobs to create interest among the younger generation to choose teaching as a profession like doctors and engineers.
The Union Ministry of Education is going to give details about this project in a few days as part of the state education policy. The main objective of the government is to introduce a 4-year high quality BEd course to attract qualified students into teaching.
It has been informed that the students admitted in this course will be recruited in teaching with scholarship on the basis of merit. Although there is an opportunity to study this course in every part of the country, the main target is the students from rural areas. The Centre’s initiative is to address the shortage of quality teachers in rural India, the Ministry of Education said.
According to the state education policy, meritorious students who complete this four-year BEd course will be given the opportunity to teach at the local level. Not only that, the Ministry of Education also has a plan to present their role models to the students of the future.
The move by the ministry is expected to establish better quality education in government schools in rural areas.
It is learned that in order to make this plan a success, the accommodation of teachers near the school will be fixed. If necessary, arrangements can be made for them to stay next to the school premises.
Emphasis will be placed on online reading in the rural education system, the ministry said. For this special internet training will be given to the teachers.
When recruiting teachers, their handwriting skills will be taken into consideration. For this it is also recommended that they be proficient in the local language.
