4 year BEd Course to be introduced from next academic session

The NCTE has decided to discontinue the 2 Year BEd course and will introduce 4 Year BEd course.

4 year BEd: The Bachelor of Education (BEd) is an undergraduate academic degree programme that prepares students for careers in education. To be eligible for the BEd program, candidates usually need to have completed their graduation in any discipline from a recognized university.

The BEd curriculum comprises a variety of disciplines connected to education and teaching practices. Educational Psychology, Pedagogy, Philosophy of Education, Sociology of Education, and Information and Communication Technology in Education are all common subjects. There may also be specialised courses available based on the elective or teaching subject chosen.

4 year BEd Course

In order to upgrade the competency of teachers, the National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE) has launched the Integrated Teacher Education Programme (ITEP) under the New Education Policy (NEP) 2020 in which the duration of B.Ed. programme has been increased from two years to four years and discontinued giving approval for two years B.Ed. programme from the academic session 2023-24.

This Council has decided not to grant new approvals to any institutions for running two-year B.Ed. (Special Education) programme(s) from the academic session 2024-25. The Council is in the process of developing a new training programme on the pattern of NCTE soon, as per NEP 2020.

All the institutions/ colleges/ universities who desire to run the Integrated B.Ed. Special Education of 4-year duration (in line with the Integrated Teacher Education Programme-ITEP of NCTE) may apply afresh for the next academic session once the online portal is opened.

The 4-year integrated B.Ed. will be a dual-major holistic bachelor’s degree in Education as well as a specialised subject such as language, history, music, mathematics, computer science, chemistry, economics, art, physical education, etc. The program aims at preparing teachers for the Foundational, Preparatory, Middle and Secondary stages as per the new school structure of NEP 2020. It will ensure that outstanding students enter the teaching profession. A student undergoing this course will be grounded in Indian values, languages, knowledge, ethos, and tribal tradition and also well-versed in the latest advances in education and pedagogy. This course caters to the need for 21st Century skills.
