Hello sir/ mam I have passed 12 th . I wanna be a teacher . Should I take admission in btc?
Hello My Dear Teaching Aspirant,
Dear friend, many thanks for your question. I appreciate your thought to make career in teaching line. The teaching is one of the noblest profession and apart from this the teacher play a significant role in shaping the future of the country. Teaching is respectable profession in India, where teacher is given highest regard.Since you have passed 12 standard, therefore, you can apply for BTC (Basic Teacher Certificate or Basic Training Certificate). This is a two years course and the syllabus depends upon state to state. The entry level requires 50% marks in 12 standard. The admission procedure could be through entrance test or may be through direct entry. Here you have not mentioned your state, other wise it would have been easy for me to you guide you better. After BTC you will be eligible to teach primary classes, up to 5th standard.If you wish to teach higher classes upto 12 standard. Then you have to to graduation and then post graduation in the subject which interest you most. Even after gradation, you are eligible to to do B.Ed (Bachelor of Education). After graduation and BEd you will be eligible to teach up to 7-8 standard classes.After obtaining a degree in graduation and BEd, if you go for post graduation, that will be better. Since as as PGT (Post Graduate Teacher), a post graduate degree with BEd will make you eligible to teach the higher classes. Technically you will be eligible teach the higher classes up to 11-12 standard. To progress in your career pathway, if you do Masters in Education (MEd) then that will help you a lot.On the other hand, the person who is teaching colleges are also known as teacher. If you wish to excel in life, wish to achieve higher positions, then after teaching for couple of years you can clear the National Eligibility Test (NET) conducted by UGC-CSIR and you will be eligible to become lecturer (Teacher) in colleges. I am also a teacher, I am teaching M.Sc , MPhil and PhD classes in a reputed University. I can understand the joy of teaching the students. That's why I told you to go for higher education.If you wish to teach the school classes only, then my suggestion will be , after having the certificate course of BTC, you should go for graduation and then do BEd to be technically qualified for middle classes.With all my best wishes,Good Luck..
