New Education Policy 2020 had been approved on 29th July 2020 by the Union Cabinet and it has replaced by the older version of the Education policy introducing many new ideas. The idea behind introducing the new policy is to amend major focus on education and learning both at school and college level. After its implementation in the education system, the New Education Policy 2020 will have its impact on CTET and TET qualified teachers and their recruitment process in KVS and NV government education system. Read the below article to know how new education policy will affect CTET/TET qualified candidates in future.
Impact on the eligibility of CTET/TET recruitments:
As proposed by the National Education Policy 2020 approved recently, by 2030 the minimum educational qualification for teachers would be changed to a four-year duration integrated B.Ed degree. If this eligibility criterion is implemented in the education system, only candidates with four-year B.Ed degree and TET or CTET or STET certificate will be eligible to apply for teacher recruitment in government schools within the nation. Along with this, the New Education Policy 2020 has also changed the way of teaching and the CTET/TET qualified teachers will be responsible for teaching students of classes 1 to 8 in government schools.
The TETs will also be extended to cover teachers across all stages (Foundational, Preparatory, Middle and Secondary) of school education. For subject teachers, suitable TET or NTA test scores in the corresponding subjects will also be taken into account for recruitment.To gauge passion and motivation for teaching, a classroom demonstration or interview will become an integral part of teacher hiring at schools and school complexes.
(5+3+3+4) School Curriculum
The National Education Policy 2020 has been passed by the Union Cabinet under which the old educational structure of 10+2 system has been shifted by 5+3+3+4 system.
|10+2 System||5+3+3+4 System|
|Structure||Existing Academic Structure||New Academic Structure|
|Stages||2 Stages||4 stages|
|Time period||12 yr School Yr||15 yr (12 School Yr + 3 Pre School yr)|
Teaching in Hindi or Regional Language
Earlier the teachers who were supposed to impart education in the mother tongue ‘Hindi’ language or their respective regional language up to Class 5. As per the New Education Policy 2020, it is proposed that the teaching is preferably required to be done in the mother tongue or regional language till Class 8th. Under this amendment, the CTET or TET qualified teachers must be having good command over Hindi or regional language as they would be asked to teach students in Hindi or their native language once the NEP is implemented in the Education system.
Interactive & technology-based teaching system:
Since CTET and other states, TET qualified teachers will be recruitment only for teaching students till Class 8, so they will have to adopt different and attractive approaches for teaching and preparing students during their foundational (Classes 1 & 2), preparatory (Classes 3 to 5) and middle stages (Classes 6 to 8). To make the teaching more interesting and easy to learn, technology will be used for understanding the topics easily, which will make it compulsory for the CTET and TET qualified teachers need to be handy at technological devices.
Transparency in the teacher recruitment process in government schools:
As proposed in the New Education Policy 2020, the objective of making the teacher recruitment process in schools more transparent, balanced, fair, and strong will be focused. This will be followed by launching New Professional Standards for Teachers (NPST) by the government and the teachers will be selected on the basis of their eligibility and talent. About the promotion of the teachers, it is also stated in the NEP 2020 that the promotion of teachers will be totally based on their merits. This change in the policy will make it easier for TET and CTET qualified candidates to get recruited on good posts in the government schools.
