Delhi: Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said on Tuesday that the Delhi Teachers University will collaborate with national and international organisations to provide world-class training to trainees as well as to exchange new ideas and practices.

Sisodia is the education minister of Delhi, made the comments at the first meeting of the board of management of the university.

In his message to the Board, Manish Sisodia said the aim of this University established by the Delhi Government is to create an institution in the field of teacher education as good as premium institutes like IIT-IIM. He said the Delhi Teachers University would emerge as a brand for teacher education all over the world.

“The Delhi Teachers University will collaborate with national and international organisations to provide world-class training to trainees as well as to exchange new ideas and practices. Along with this, they will also be educated about the international education system through exchange programmes and visits,” Sisodia said.

According to the government official, it is agreed at the board meeting that unlike most of the teacher-training courses offered in the country, those offered at the Delhi Teachers University will not focus only on subject-based knowledge.

Government officials said, “Instead, capacity building of trainees will be in focus. They will be equipped with practical skills so that they can be better prepared for classroom teaching. It was also discussed at the meeting that the university would not only emphasise teachers’ training but also focus on fundamental and applied research in the field of education. The trainees in the university will be exposed to excellent pedagogical practices by expert faculty.”

After getting approval from various statutory bodies, seven courses will be offered to the students of the university. These are:

  • A four-year integrated B.Ed programme,
  • A two-year B.Ed programme,
  • A two-year B.Ed programme for special education,
  • A three-year integrated B.Ed-M.Ed programme,
  • A two-year MA education programme,
  • A one-year certificate programme (school education), and
  • A one-year certificate programme (higher education).

“The Delhi Teachers University will work to fulfil the vision of the city government for education and emerge as the best institution of teacher education not only in Delhi but in the whole country and the world,” said Dhananjay Joshi, the vice-chancellor of the university.
