AICTE launches two programmes that would benefit students and teachers. Here are the details
During the launch, Prof Anil D Sahasrabudhe, Chairman, AICTE, shared that they were "extremely delighted" to launch both initiatives
To create a sizable pool of technical teachers who are also trained, on January 7, AICTE (All India Council for Technological Education) made an announcement pertaining to the National Initiative for Technical Teachers Training (NITTT). It stated that it was expanding the ambit of NTTT and it was doing so by making it accessible to those teachers with five plus years of service.
Along with this, AICTE launched aslap.aicte-india.org
When it comes to the NTTT, teachers, as part of the training exercise, will be required to serve industrial training and a semester-based mentorship. While Students Learning Assessment has over 1,45,000 assessment items encompassing various disciplines geared towards improving the overall competence of both students and graduates. This will include aptitude, core disciplines, emerging areas and a whole lot more. Over 80,000 students had registered already, out of which, 55,000 completed the assessment as part of the pilot along with 1,200 faculty members who have also undertaken the assessment.
