A little bit about CTET 

With the implementation of the Right of
Children to Free and Compulsory Education (RTE) Act, there is a huge need to
recruit teachers to fill the vacancies in various schools. Having said that,
the recruitment process has to exhibit a certain amount of quality so that the
right kind of teacher is recruited. To ensure this, the National Council for
Teachers Education (NCTE) laid down the rule that a candidate aiming to join a
school has to clear the Teacher Eligibility Test (TET). This test will be
conducted by appropriate government bodies. The responsibility of conducting
CTET is entrusted with the Central Board of School Education.

Why was CTET introduced?

(i)
 To ensure a nationwide benchmark in the
quality of the teachers being recruited
(ii)
 Improve the standards of the teachers
teaching in Central Government schools.
Which schools are CTET applicable for?
(i) CTET
is applicable to Central Government Schools (KVS, Tibetan schools, NVS, etc)
(ii)
Schools in the Union Territories of Andaman & Nicobar Islands and
Chandigarh
(iii)
Unaided private schools can also think of opting for CTET
(iv)
Schools owned by state government can also think of opting for CTET, in case
they do not opt for state
conducted TET.
