Our Union Government 's National Council of Teacher Education (NCTE), has mandated that all untrained primary teachers of Government, Government-aided and private schools will compulsorily need to undergo the Diploma in Elementary Education (D.El.Ed).
As per the Union Government order, all State Governments primary school teachers should obtain the Diploma in Elementary Education (D.El.Ed.) by March 2019. Failing this, they would be removed.
This rule will be equally applicable to all primary teachers of Government, semi-Government, and Private and Government-aided schools. The teachers with BTC certificates would be exempted from this compulsion. All primary teachers teaching Classes from I to VIII come under the scope of this order.
There are many Bachelor of Education (BEd) qualified teachers employed with State Governments teaching in primary classes. They will be needed to undergo special D.El.Ed training.
Accordingly, colleges granting degree in Education, including private colleges in Bihar have started offering D.El.Ed courses.
Sandip University at Madhubani-Sijoul is the best D.El.Ed. training college in Bihar. The school imparts study in all the major aspects of education field. Apart from theory, the students also go through practical training.
Sandip University Madhubani-Sijoul Bihar D.El.Ed course is a 2-year full-time diploma course offered to those who have qualified 10+2 or equivalent examination from any recognised board with a minimum of 50% marks.
The course comprises of a series of supervised experiences and plays a significant role in laying the foundation of further learning for future teachers.
Handling children at the elementary level is not easy. Holding an educational degree does not bring the expertise of dealing with young ones. Therefore, it is essential for teachers to undergo proper training that D.El.Ed gives.
It prepares teachers with broader subject knowledge which includes principles for child development, educational practice, a study of school pedagogy along with the role of a teacher in grooming students.
School psychologists, occupational and physical therapists, social workers, speech therapists are some of the roles D.El.Ed qualified teachers may work in.
Earning is never an issue with qualified D.El.Ed professionals. They may work as a teacher, assistant teacher, private tutor, student counselor etc. in both Government and Private schools.
Graduates with D.EI.Ed may also open their own Nursery or Private Tuition Classes or become Education Counselor/Developer.
