Back to Schools & centres
The Centre is invested in strengthening existing state and private systems of teacher education. CETE works with the central and state governments in varying capacities, in building capabilities of state functionaries and teacher educators, in curriculum development, conducting CPD workshops, and evaluation studies.
We have worked in the past with DIETs, BRCs, CRCs and Teacher Education Institutes in different states. Some recent activities include:
Teaching and Learning Consortium (TALC) 2020 - Webinar Series

Subsequently, a community of practice has been set up to further the discussions and to share ideas and practice.

1.Round table on “In-service Teacher Professional development: Perspectives and Possibilities” was held in collaboration with Ambedkar University Delhi on 28-29 April, 2018. The roundtable was aimed at providing a platform for sharing experiences in the use of ‘alternative’ models of teacher development and explore the diversity in thoughts about teacher knowledge, material development, teacher identity and motivation. The rich and stimulating discussions that ensued as a result of experience-sharing, challenges, questions, failures, learnings and possible theoretical models laid the ground for the rather ambitious task of working ‘with’ teachers for their and our own professional development.This roundtable brought together teachers, scholars and experts from civil society organizations for a critical dialogue on the theme of in-service Teacher Development. The discussions were spread over nine sessions across two days. This report is a summary of the discussions in the sessions. Access the report.
2.Roundtable on Regulation of Teachers and Teacher Education, March 14 & 15, 2019- Teacher education sector in India is faced with complex concerns of quality as highlighted in the National Education Policy, 2019. The twenty-first century brought a series of important policy reforms in India. The National Curriculum Framework for Teacher Education, 2009 (NCFTE) noted that quality teacher education was essential for achieving educational goals. Quality of teacher education gained national importance following the Justice Verma Commission (MHRD, 2012) report. The commission recommended locating teacher education within higher education and offering integrated teacher education programmes. This has been the basis for the current reform efforts initiated by NCTE. It is within these larger policy transitions and recent reform efforts toward regulating teacher education quality that a Roundtable on ‘Regulation of Teachers and Teacher Education’ was held on 14 & 15 March, 2019 at the Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai with a purpose of sharing interests and concerns of the teacher education sector and exploring possibilities of understanding and formulating these in the larger interests of the growth of the sector.Access the report.
