CBSE advises schools to follow regular teacher training program

Central Board of Secondary Education expressed great displeasure on affiliated schools who do not send their teachers for regular capacity building programs as mandated under its affiliation laws. The board made it clear that schools can’t ignore regular training for teachers as it is an integral part of its affiliation by law. 

Deputy Secretary of affiliation JP Chaturvedi wrote to schools "It has been noted that the affiliated schools are not sponsoring/nominating their teachers regularly for capacity building programme as per the provisions of affiliation by-laws. Therefore, the schools affiliated with the CBSE board may adhere to rule 3.3(h) (vi) of the affiliation by-laws and nominate their teachers for various capacity building programmes conducted by the concerned Centre of Excellence (CoE) of the board.

JP Chaturvedi reminded schools that the capacity building program is not an option that can be ignored and also added that "It is mandated that the schools affiliated with the board should organize such capacity building training programme for all its teachers at least once every year in association with teachers training institutes recognized by the state or central government or the board itself or the CoE of the board".

His letter made it clear that those schools who are seeking for extension of their provisional affiliation will be considered to the school’s record of nominating its teachers for training as per the provisions of affiliation by-law.

There are seven CoE under the CBSE board which caters to schools under its geographical jurisdiction and CoE Centre in Pune handles the training for teachers in Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Goa and some union territories.

Chaturvedi in his letter also mentioned that "It is widely acknowledged that enhancing teacher quality is a key element in improving school education and promoting students' development. Therefore, systematic in -service training of teachers should be of paramount importance in all schools. This will help in bringing qualitative change in the attitude of teachers".
