नवोदय विद्यालय समिति

Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti

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

Navodaya Vidyalaya Scheme is a noble 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.  Apart from long duration (21 days) induction training courses for newly recruited teaching staff, short duration in-service courses like  orientation courses, seminars,  workshops etc. are also organized 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 up gradation. 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, ISTM etc.
