नवोदय विद्यालय समिति

Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti

( An Autonomous Body Under Ministry of Education ) Government Of India

Navodaya Vidyalaya Scheme is a novel scheme to establish pace-setting institutions specifically for the  rural children.  For achieving its avowed objectives, the most important tool available  with the Samiti is its human resources in the form  of ‘Teachers’.  It is, therefore, necessary that the teachers are continuously provided  institutional support to  increase their professional competence and to make them aware of the latest innovations in the fields of education, curricular reforms and information technology.

Teachers of  Navodaya Vidyalayas are recruited through open competition at All India Level.  In-service training courses for all the teachers are being organised by drawing resources from within and  outside NVS system for promotion of  professional growth both in terms of content and methodology.  These teachers have  to undergo at  least one 21-day  In-service course every five years not only to get eligibility to be granted senior or selection scales but also to maintain the pace-setting characters of NVS.  Apart from this long duration (21 days) In-service training courses, short duration induction programmes, orientation courses, seminars,  workshops etc. are also organised as a part of teachers training programme every year.

In order to help the teachers to reach a high level of attainment through innovation and experimentation, training of teachers is an important aspect of teaching skill upgradation. Emphasis is laid on modern educational technology, appropriate inter-personal relationship, the right kind of academic environment, value orientation, interaction and participatory approach in teaching-learning process in the Vidyalayas. The Samiti has also taken care of continuous pre-service and in-service training of teachers in collaboration with the Institutes of Higher Learning in the country such as NCERT, NUEPA, RIE, IIPA etc.
