To improve the teacher education system in the country, National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE), which sets norms and standards for quality teacher education and ensure planned and coordinated development of teacher education, is conducting a nationwide study on the demand and supply of teachers and teacher educators at the school level, for the years 2007-08 to 2016-17. Also, to upgrade the BEd curriculum and other teacher-training programmes, a revised National Curriculum Framework for Teacher Education (NCFTE) in synchronisation with the NCF 2005 is being finalised by the NCTE.

Mohd Akhtar Siddiqui, chairperson, NCTE, said: “Though NCTE was formed in 1973 and given a statutory status in 1993, there was no groundwork done to identify the demand of teachers in the country. Only once we have the data, can we address the problem of shortage of teachers.” The study, which started last year, is being conducted in all states and UTs and scheduled to be completed in a few months. The trends, as reflected in the study, already indicate over supply of teachers in several states and under supply in eastern states. Steps are being taken to correct this unbalanced growth.
