Challenges in Implementing NCTE’s ITEP

The recommendations put forth for teacher education programmes in the National Education Policy 2020 are probed in this article. It further examines how the National Council for Teacher Education is expeditiously implementing these recommendations through its recently introduced Integrated Teacher Education Programme. It is noted that the ITEP is afflicted with inherent systemic deficiencies pertaining to pedagogical planning and implementation.

The Integrated Teacher Education Programme (ITEP) will replace the University of Delhis Bachelor of Elementary Education (BElEd) course from the session of 202324. The University of Delhis registrar justifies it by stating,

We will be scrapping BElEd and bringing in ITEP. For this year, we will run both programmes parallelly. Both cannot run together because teachers are limited; we are not getting new teachers from the government. We are looking at starting ITEP this July and if there is a positive response, BElEd will be automatically scrapped. (DU Beat 2023)
