“The destiny of India is now being shaped in her classrooms”, the Education Commission professed. The NPE 1986 also emphasized, “The status of the teacher reflects the socio-cultural ethos of the society; it is said that no people can rise above the level of its teachers”. Such exhortations are indeed expressions of significant role played by the teachers. Hence education reforms invariably accord highest priority to improve teacher effectiveness. The issue of quality teacher education is closely tied up with the concern for the duration of initial teacher preparation programmes. Over the last two decades in India, the issue of curriculum renewal and extended duration of secondary stage teacher education has received serious attention. A perusal of the reports of various commissions and committees like Kothari Commission, Chattopadhaya commission and justice Verma committee indicate the preference for longer duration of B.Ed. programme. It was also endorsed by the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India. The NCTE made the recommendation for beginning a two-year B.Ed. programme to prepare quality teachers as per Regulation 2014. Accordingly, the two-year B.Ed. course aims at a complete development of the student-teacher; particularly in knowledge and skills, in individual care of the learner and also in methods and evaluation designed to facilitate learning. The curriculum retains the essence of student-teachers being active participants in the learning process and prepares the student-teachers for facing the emerging challenges resulting out of globalization and its consequences.
