The Ministry also informed that officials conducted a consultative meeting amongst the participating Teacher Education Institutions (TEIs) to share the Draft of Suggestive Curriculum Framework on ITEP, four-year ITEP, on 30 December 2020. Vice-Chancellor of several universities, teacher education professionals, academicians, teachers, and other stakeholders participated in a collective exercise of understanding, expanding, and reformulating the approach toward initial teacher preparation in alignment with NEP 2020.
NCTE had invited online applications for the four-year integrated teacher education programmes (ITEP) for the academic session 2023-24. Moreover, the four-year ITEP will be available for all students who choose to teach as a profession after secondary by choice. This integrated course seeks to benefit students since they will save one year by finishing it in four years rather than the customary five years required by the present BEd plan.
