RR Shiksha Sansthan offers two year Basic Training Certificate Course (B.T.C.) also known as Diplama in Elementry Education (D.El.Ed.) that is approved by the National Council for Teachers' Education, New Delhi(N.C.T.E.) and State Council for Educational Research and Training, Allahabad, U.P. (S.C.E.R.T.). This teacher education programme aims at preparing teachers for the elementary stage of education, that is, classes I-VIII. The elementary teacher is called upon to engage with children of 6-14 years in a variety of socio-cultural contexts. The purpose of engagement is to facilitate children’s learning and development, for which the teacher must have thorough understanding of the child and his process of learning and development and also of problems and rights of children. Needless to say that the teacher is expected to develop the requisite understandings through his/her own observation, experimentation and reflection.

It is not an easy job being a teacher. This is a profession full of great responsibilities and challenges. One has to receive years of training and experience to become a teacher. The conduct of the teacher can motivate or demoralize the students. He plays a hugely influential role in the lives of young kids. Because of the accountabilities associated with this job, one must be adequately trained for the job. This Teacher’s training program has been created for that very purpose.
