Thousands of teachers in private schools in Telangana who are poorly trained in English language teaching and child pedagogy are undergoing a training programme at the National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS). The ministry of human resource development (MHRD) has set a deadline of March 31, 2019, for all untrained teachers to acquire B.El.Ed (bachelor of elementary education) or D.El.Ed. (diploma in elementary education) to keep their jobs.

Officials claim that the majority of teachers employed by private schools are `unqualified freshers’ who are recruited at paltry pays. “Even if teachers in recognised schools are experts in their subjects, majority of them are poor in language and communication skills due to which teaching is severely affected,” said Siva Krishna Lingareddy, who served as a teacher for nearly 35 years before he retired.

According to officials, the majority of untrained teachers are at the primary and upper primary levels. However, teachers in private schools rue that while the government has ensured that enough training is offered to government and aided school teachers, those from private schools are neglected

The last date for registration and payment of the fee by the respective candidates is 15.09.2017.

In this context, all the District Educational Officers & EO-DPOs, SSA in the State are directed to pay their immediate personal attention on this item and take all necessary initiatives to ensure that the in-service untrained teachers working in the Private Unaided Management as per the details furnished

Teacher  Education is one of the important components to determine the quality of a  teacher. Untrained teachers remain deprived of becoming aware of realising many good qualities of a teacher. Teaching is a profession that requires the development of typical feelings and skills of harnessing the good qualities of a learner.

To ensure that all untrained teachers acquire the requisite qualifications, SSA provides for 60 days of training for teachers who have not received any training before their recruitment. But this training cannot be deemed to be equivalent to requisite training qualification as prescribed by the NCTE.

However, after the notification of the ” Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act 2009 effective from 1st April 2010, it is imperative that all teachers teaching at the elementary level,
if not trained, shall have to acquire training qualification within a period of five years.

The number of untrained teachers is so large that it may not be possible to train all of them through face to face formal system. Alternative strategies like Open & Distance Learning system is considered to be an effective strategy to complete this gigantic task.

With this backdrop, it has been decided to develop and implement an elementary teacher training programme through Open & Distance Learning mode for untrained teachers teaching in elementary schools.

1. The minimum qualification required for admission in D.El.Ed. (ODL) for untrained in-service teachers is 50% marks in aggregate at Sr. Secondary (Class12th) (or it’s equivalent). For SC/ST/OBC/PH candidates a relaxation of 5% marks is admissible

2. Those who are not fulfilling the minimum qualification of 50% at the 12th level can take admission in NIOS for improvement under Stream-1 or Stream-4 (On-Demand Examination) as part credit in one subject, 2 subjects, three subjects or up to four subjects. Successful candidates will be issued only a Mark Statement.

Target Group and Eligibility Conditions:
Untrained  Teachers working at Primary level (I-IV/V) having Sr. Secondary  Qualification  (or it’s equivalent) with at least 50% marks in aggregate (for SC/ST/OBC/PH candidates a relaxation of 5% marks admissible) and Untrained Teachers working at Upper Primary level (V/VI – VIII) having B.A./B. Sc. Qualification. State sponsorship is mandatory.

The minimum duration of the program is two years. However, the registration of a learner to the program shall be valid for a period of three years.

Program Structure:
The basic principles on which the program is structured is based on the functions a teacher is expected to perform at the elementary schools, be it engaging in the classroom processes, mobilizing the community, participation in the corporate life of the school, or implementing the whole school development plan.

The main features of the course are
