CBSE CTET 2011 Central Teacher Eligibility Test Notification Date Form

CBSE Central Teacher Eligibility Test (CTET) - 2011

The implementation of the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education (RTE) Act, 2009 requires the recruitment of a large number of teachers across the country in a time bound manner. In spite of the enormity of the task, it is desirable to ensure that quality requirement for recruitment of teachers is not diluted at any cost. It is therefore necessary to ensure that persons recruited as teachers possess the essential aptitude and ability to meet the challenges of teaching at the primary and upper primary level.

In accordance with the provisions of sub-section (1) of Section 23 of the RTE Act, the National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE) had vide Notification dated 23rd August, 2010 laid down the minimum qualifications for a person to be eligible for appointment as a teacher in classes I to VIII. It had been inter alia provided that one of the essential qualifications for a person to be eligible for appointment as a teacher in any of the schools referred to in clause (n) of section 2 of the RTE Act is that he/ she should pass the Teacher Eligibility Test (TET) which will be conducted by the appropriate Government in accordance with the Guidelines framed by the NCTE.

The rationale for including the TET as a minimum qualification for a person to be eligible for appointment as a teacher is as under:

i). It would bring national standards and benchmark of teacher quality in the recruitment process;
ii). It would induce teacher education institutions and students from these institutions to further improve their performance standards;
iii). It would send a positive signal to all stakeholders that the Government lays special emphasis on teacher quality

About CBSE
Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE)
A trail of developments mark the significant changes that took place over the years in shaping up the Board to its present status.  U P Board of High School and Intermediate Education was the first Board set up in 1921. It has under its jurisdiction Rajputana, Central India and Gwalior.  In response to the representation  made by the Government of United Provinces, the then Government of India suggested to set up a joint Board in 1929 for all the areas which was named as the  ‘ Board of High School and Intermediate Education, Rajputana.   This included Ajmer, Merwara, Central India and Gwalior.

The Board witnessed rapid growth and expansion at the level of Secondary education resulting in improved quality and standard of education in institutions.  But with the advent of State Universities and State Boards in various parts of the country the jurisdiction of the Board was confined only to Ajmer, Bhopal and Vindhya Pradesh later.  As a result of this, in 1952 , the constitution of the Board was amended wherein its jurisdiction was extended to part-C and Part-D territories and the Board was given its present name ‘Central Board of Secondary Education’.   It was in the year 1962 finally that the Board was reconstituted.  The main objectives were those of : serving the educational institutions more effectively, to  be responsive to the educational needs of those students whose parents were employed in the Central Government and had frequently transferable jobs.
