Appendix- 6

Norms and Standards for Bachelor of Elementary Education (B.EI.Ed.)

Preface

The National Council for Teacher Education has now been vested with statutory authority to take all such steps as it may think fit for ensuring planned and coordinated development of teacher education and for the determination and maintenance of standards of teacher education including preparation for pre-primary, primary, secondary and senior secondary stages of school education. The formulation of norms and standards for teacher education institutions preparing teachers and teacher educators for different levels of school education is essential for a variety of reasons. Norms will help existing institutions offering teacher education programmes, to compare the provisions in their institutions with norms of the NCTE and take necessary action to correct deficiencies, if any. Norms will also help in proper planning of new institutions, programmes and courses of teacher education.

Here, the norms and standards specify the ‘Conditions’ required for recognition, permission, and additional intake of seats.

This document specifies norms and standards approved by the NCTE for Bachelor of Elementary Education (B.EI.Ed.) Programme by the institutions offering four- year full-time integrated face to face instruction.

It is expected that this document will be used by planners and administrators of teacher education, and by government, autonomous and private managements of teacher education in planning, organizing and recognizing programmes of Bachelor of Elementary Teacher Education (B.EI.Ed.) Programme. The NCTE will be using these norms for professional recognition of institutions organising Bachelor of Elementary Teacher Education (B.EI.Ed.) Programmes. These norms will also be used for advising government, autonomous and private managements for taking suitable action for improving existing programmes and institutions.
