NCTE this time has come with the aim to this platform and the aim is to rank 100 top teacher training institutes by January next year and introduce a wave of revamped academic excellence. National Council for Teachers Education is the soul regulator of teacher’s education in India, has now come up with a brand new method of ranking institutions across India- TeachR. Currently the process in is progress, as it is now scheduled to become a new framework for accreditation and ranking of teacher education institutes in India.
By the second week of August the new framework will be fully established and the prime objective of the council is to build a regulatory framework promoting academic excellence, the main aim will be working as a stamp for institutes producing teachers for India. It will prioritize the outcomes of education as opposed to the inputs available to impart education.
In literal terms, the framework will assess if future teachers are ready for schools instead of focusing on the number of books the college’s library has, with this framework, NCTE aims to unlock the potential of all TEIs to provide better learning outcomes for their student – teachers and eventually for all students in India.
The four quality checks of these assessment methods are
- Physical assets
- Academic assets
- Teaching and learning quality
- Student learning outcomes
The inspection of institutions in Bihar has already begun on July 10.Exceptions will be made for superior or high performing institutions and will be allowed to leap out this assessment if they qualify on two grounds –
- Physical assets
- Learning outcomes
A college which fails to meet basic requirements of a Teacher Education Institute (TEI) will be weeded out as a outcome of this assessment. There will be four categories, under which B.Ed colleges will be ranked- A, B, C and D, according to their performance in the assessment. Those coming as low as D will be notified to shut down without wasting a day and those which falling in C will be obliged to meet the bar in the span of a year and failing to do even this will result in their shut-down.
