Delhi Teachers’ University: Newly emerging Delhi Teachers’ University to bridge shortage of training institutes

With a first-of-its kind Delhi Teachers’ University being set up, the emphasis is on skilling teachers on quality education in Bakkarwala village. Based on the mantra ‘Shikshak ke Dum pe Shiksha, Shiksha ke Dum par Desh’, the University envisages to be the first university in the country to meet the requirements of teacher training as per the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020.

Delhi Deputy CM, Manish Sisodia, tabled a Delhi Teachers’ University Bill 2022 in the assembly recently. The varsity, while aiming to set standards like the IITs, IIMs, AIIMS and IIMC, will offer teacher education programmes like BA-BEd and BSc-BEd to help develop a new generation of teachers. Additionally, a one-year diploma in education will be introduced for those professionals who have a passion for teaching but are not able to pursue this as a vocation due to degree restrictions.
