The NCERT: Working for a better education in India

Submitted on: Mon, 25 Apr 2011 08:25:44Views: 326
In 1961, the Government of India established the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) as an autonomous organization to assist and advise the governments at the Centre and in States in the implementation of their policies for education, especially to bring about qualitative changes in school education and teacher preparation.

The National Curriculum Framework, 2005, recommends that childrenâ??s life at school must be linked to their life outside the school. This principle marks a departure from the legacy of bookish learning which continuous to shape our system and causes a gap between the school, home and community.

NCERT takes care of all the requirement of the school i.e. content, teaching and learning material, training, support and value added education. It has taken consideration the rapid changes in the field of education, its awareness levels amongst young children and the ease of access to each & everyone in our environment today. The curriculum is designed to create future citizens competent globally & empower children growing up in digital age.

Pre-service and in-service training of teachers at various levels; pre-primary, elementary, secondary and higher secondary, vocational education, educational technology, guidance and counseling, and special education are the areas of training in which NCERT works.

Several programs are organized in rural and backward areas in order to reach out to the functionaries in these areas where special problems exist and where special efforts are needed. Special programs are organized for the education of the disadvantaged sections of the society.

NCERT publishes textbooks for different school subjects for Classes I to XII. It also brings out workbooks, teachersâ?? guides, supplementary readers, research reports, etc. In addition, it publishes instructional materials for the use of teacher educators, teacher trainees and in-service teachers. These instructional materials, produced through research and developmental work, serve as models to various agencies in States and Union Territories. These are made available to state level agencies for adoption and/or adaptation. The textbooks are published in English, Hindi and Urdu.

Exchange Programs
NCERT interacts with international organizations such as UNESCO, UNICEF, UNDP, NFPA and the World Bank to study specific educational problems and to arrange training programs for personnel from other countries.


NTSE: Being an official body NCERT has introduced NTSE, which is widely regarded as the toughest and most prestigious examination upto high school level in the country. NTSE is a national level scholarship program in India to identify and nurture talented students. NTSE is open for students of Indian nationality whether they study in India or abroad at class VIII level.
For the courses in Basic Sciences, Social Sciences and Commerce, this scholarship is provided up to Ph.D. level. For professional courses like Engineering, Medicine, Management and Law this scholarship is given only up to Post Graduation.

With a view to further encouraging and nurturing talent NCERT will support the children who participate in the National Camp organized by the National Bal Bhawan through a scheme of Chacha Nehru Scholarships for Artistic and Innovative Excellence.
This scholarship is available to children pursuing secondary and senior secondary education in classes
IX â?? XII.
