New Delhi: Classroom demonstration or interview will be an essential criterion for selection of teachers in schools, according to the new National Education Policy (NEP), which was launched on July 29.
“To gauge passion and motivation for teaching, a classroom demonstration or interview will become an integral part of teacher hiring at schools and school complexes,” it says.
“These interviews would also be used to assess comfort and proficiency in teaching in the local language, so that every school/ school complex has at least some teachers who can converse with students in the local language and other prevalent home languages of students,” it adds.
Teachers are selected through state teacher eligibility tests or the Central teacher eligibility test.
NEP has set new guidelines for improving these tests. “Teacher Eligibility Tests (TETs) will be strengthened to inculcate better test material, both in terms of content and pedagogy. The TETs will also be extended to cover teachers across all stages (Foundational, Preparatory, Middle and Secondary) of school education,” it says.
