[MTC Global] Teacher training institutes to be ranked by January

PATNA: The National Council for Teachers Education (NCTE), the apex regulator of teachers education in India, will rank 100 top teacher training institutes by January next year. To start the process, teachers from Bihar and Uttar Pradesh
​ ​
participated in the 1st National Consultations on Reform meet held here on Thursday.

NCTE chairman Santhosh Mathew informed the participants about the new regulations, which would control the mushrooming of poor quality institutions and bring about transparency in teachers' training. The proposed accreditation and ranking framework of teacher education institutions will be based on physical and academic assets, teaching learning quality and learning outcome.

Mathew told media persons the NCTE is reorganizing the grading system to give more weight to learning outcome of students and teachers rather than focusing on physical infrastructure of the institution. "Learning outcome remains a weak link and overall learning levels of Indian students remain pretty disappointing. Now on, physical assets will get just 10% weight while 20% weight will be given to academic assets, 30% to teacher transactions and 40% to students' learning outcome," he said.

"In order to raise the learning outcome, NCTE will conduct various assessment techniques, which include a proctored test for aspiring teachers and audiovideo recording to live classroom sessions. According to the assessment, the institutes will be graded from A to D. The best grade will be A. It is important for all the institutions to get themselves registered on the NCTE website," said Mathew.

his is a good step by the NCTE but qualified teachers should be made available to all training college.

He said the reform initiatives are to be implemented on the direction of the Patna high court, which stated the inspection of teacher education institutions, including universities, government and private institutions running teacher educational courses in Bihar. The inspection of institutions in Bihar will begin on July 10.

National Teacher Platform, an online portal, will be launched on July 22 to help teachers access an array of resources that will aid their classroom preparation. The platform will also work as national teacher education registry. It can be used by teachers to showcase their resume to prospective employers. Mathew said, "The platform will be a space where teachers will log everything they do, like the material they use, tests and readings."
