WEST BENGAL ELEMENTARY TEACHER
EDUCATION CURRICULUM, LEADING TO
Two Year Diploma in Elementary Education through Face To Face Mode
FORE WORDS
I am very glad to announce that the West Bengal Board of Primary Education is going to accept the final version of the revised Two Year D El Ed Curriculum for implementing it from July 2014-session.
The Course is meant for the candidates who have passed the H S (+2)
or its equivalent examination from a recognized Board/Council with 50%
marks in the aggregate (45% for SC, ST, OBC, PH, Ex-Servicemen &
Exempted Categories).
With the introduction of the new curriculum, syllabi and approaches to school education in West Bengal from 2013, it became an imperative for the West Bengal Board of Primary Education to review and revise the existing Two Year D El Ed Curriculum in accordance with the directions and guidelines of the NCFTE-2009 to accept the new challenges of school education, enshrined in the elementary school education curriculum in West Bengal updated in tune with the spirit in the NCF-2005.
The present document was first handed over to the WBBPE by the Secretary, Department of School Education for implementing the same with effect from
2014.
The West Bengal Board of Primary Education without accepting the same placed the document before a host of national and state level experts in a workshop, held in Kolkata on the 29th and 30th August 2013.
The final version is the product of their suggestions and recommendations, received from the experts all over India in 2013 and 2014. It is expected that this revised curriculum will meet the demands of School Education through professional preparation of student-teachers.
It is hoped that student-teachers after going through the curriculum will bring about the desired changes in the classrooms where §the destiny of India is being shaped”, by
(i) bringing the learners to the fore front of the education-process
(ii) not treating information-giving as the sole aim of education
(iii) creating a linkage between schools and community
(iv) creating students’ profile and bringing into account the assessment
of every child’s performance continuously & comprehensively
Wish the National Council for Teacher Education to look up on this curriculum as equivalent to all such curricula introduced and to be in induced as per their guidelines.
