Through this initiative NIIT would like to express its heartfelt gratitude to all teachers who have dedicated their lives to groom the next generation Indians.

The Central Teacher Eligibility Test (CTET) Advantage Program is an initiative by NIIT to support Pre-Service/In-Service teachers to prepare for the Central Teacher Eligibility Test and to help them ace the exam.

The details can be accessed on the website:

Speaking on the occasion Mr. Rahul Keshav Patwardhan, CEO, NIIT Ltd. said, "Teaching is one of the most challenging professions that demands high level of commitment, dedication and professionalism. With over 3 decades of experience in Education and Training NIIT's CTET Advantage Program is an initiative to extend our support to Pre-Service/In-Service teachers and prepare them for this noble profession. Hence on the occasion of Teachers' Day we offer free access to The CTET preparation portal to help teachers and would be teachers to excel in CTET and play a greater role in shaping young minds".

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 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 of 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 Advantage  program offered by NIIT has been designed to provide complete revision and clarification of concepts related to pedagogy and child development. NIIT is empanelled with CBSE to conduct various development programs, including programs on CCE for School Teachers and for School Principals. Over the years, NIIT has conducted training programs for over 1 million teachers worldwide.

NIIT has helped many applicants clear the exam, with several students almost doubling their scores from the previous attempts, thereby validating its approach & efficacy. In the CTET-Feb 2015 exam, NIIT has achieved a success rate of 41%.

Teachers who enroll for The CTET Advantage program learn from expert faculty comprising domain experts and CTET/NET qualified professionals. NIIT provides well researched courseware and content which are taught by the best trainers using the Cloud Campus (SLT Technology). For Test Preparation, NIIT provides Online Portal to the candidates which consist of Mock Test based on real examination pattern and also DVD/Pen Drive with high quality training content for comprehensive learning of the student.
