With an aim to bring more transparency in the governance of teacher education in the country, the Union Human Resource Development (HRD) Minister Smriti Irani has recently launched the revamped website of NCTE.
The new website of the National Council of Teacher Education (NCTE) will be more promising with application for teacher education programmes, redressal of public grievances and appeal process within it. According to a statement released by the ministry the website will be completely user-friendly and responsive, and even mobile users can access the website through their phones. The website will also give opportunity to file an online complaint and RTI application.
This facility would keep the person alert about their complaint and follow up with the person through direct communication. Through this method there will be a healthy mechanism of feedback that will get established between the teachers and the council. The website can also help track the teachers and their availability in specific regions or zones, where there are many or few schools in different states.
The statement further said, “The website is rich in content, which contains rules, regulations, norms and standards, frequently asked questions, information for ongoing activities, teacher education curriculum, publications, video galleries etc.” The website is expected to provide enormous amount of information to the teachers who are going to associate with the council and help them get transparent information regarding any development in the council.
