IITs and NITs started B.Ed. Courses

National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE) developed four years integrated teacher education course after the recommendation of National Education Policy 2020. It is going to be four year integrated course commencing after 12th/intermediate. This course is already running in the Regional Institute of Of Education now NCTE instructed IIts and NITs to start the course. So this year, students who are seeking admission to NIT and IIT and want to make their career in teaching can give the entrance exam that NTA will conduct in the name of national common entrance test (NCET). Moreover,  Central/State and other institutions like RIEs of India will also participate to take admission in these courses.

Structure of B.Ed. Courses of IITs, NIT, and Other Universities 

The structure of B.Ed. will be quite different from common B.Ed. running in the country. NCTE designed 4-year Integrated Teacher Education Programme (ITEP) which will allow students after 12th class of school to apply in these courses. IITs and NITs this year will start only 4 year B.Sc. B.Ed. course in which students who have taken the science stream can apply.
