History of Four-Year Integrated ITEP Programme-

In 2014, to ensure Quality Teacher Training, the National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE) made some sweeping changes by increasing the duration of the Bachelor of Education programme from one year to two years with major change in the curriculum.

  • The new models introduced at the time included the 4-year integrated course after class 12.
  • According to experts, this change from one-year duration to a two-year model was done to give a professional edge to the aspirants like any other professional courses like BE (four years), MBBS (five-and-a-half years), CA (five- years) etc.
  • The same reason is being cited now for scrapping the option for the 2-year BEd course.
