NIIT to conduct The CTET Advantage Program
Aims to aid teachers with requisite skill-sets to further excel in their profession and qualify CTET

New Delhi, June 04, 2014: NIIT Limited, leading Global Talent Development Corporation is set to conduct The CTET Advantage Program to support Pre-Service/In-Service teachers to prepare for the forthcoming CTET and to help them ace the exam. The Classroom based program will be conducted at select NIIT centres and Self-learning/Online program and test series will be offered across the country.

CTET aspirants can visit CTET coaching for more details or call +91-97174 93803 / +91-97174 92474 / +91-97177 50072.

The CTET program has been launched under aegis of NIIT Litmus, an initiative by NIIT for helping young aspirants prepare for competitive exams leading to enhanced employability. Qualifying CTET (Central Teacher Eligibility Test) is a compulsory and essential requirement for securing a teaching job in Government Schools. Leading private schools also ask for CTET qualification for recruitment and for determining pay scale. CTET is conducted by CBSE, twice a year in accordance with the guidelines framed by NCTE as per provisions of the RTE act. The rationale for including the Teacher Eligibility Test as a minimum qualification for a person to be eligible for appointment as a teacher is to bring national standards and benchmark teacher quality in the recruitment process, improve performance standards of teachers and quality of teaching.

The CTET coaching program (The CTET Advantage) offered by NIIT has been designed to provide complete revision and clarification of concepts related to pedagogy and child development. It guides the students on taking the examination by providing them with innumerable practice tests for clearing doubts and by conducting mock tests in real test environment. The program also includes workshop in CCE, student management skills and interview skills.

As per CBSE, only 1.79% of the 7.5 lakh candidates who appeared for the CTET in February, 2014 qualified. NIIT has helped many applicants clear the exam, with many students almost doubling their scores from the previous attempts, thereby validating its approach and efficacy.

Speaking on the occasion Mr. Amitabh Lahiri, President, Career Building Solutions, NIIT Ltd. said, "With over 30 years of experience in Professional Development for teachers, we are now pleased to introduce The CTET Advantage Program to help teachers excel in CTET and play a greater role in shaping young minds."

Teachers who enrol for The CTET Advantage program learn from expert faculty comprising of domain experts and CTET/NET qualified professionals. The teachers can avail the facility of interactive and engaging, multimedia based tutorials on subject hot spots, several full length practice tests along with analysis, specific techniques and strategies for cracking the exam, doubt clearing sessions, well researched courseware, and lessons on demand on all key concepts.
