Bachelor in Education (B.Ed.) Programme
The Bachelor of Education (B.Ed.) is the full-time Two-Years duration flagship programme of our Institute. It is rated as one of the best programmes of its kind in the country. Through the 60 years of its history, this programme has undergone many transformations, at least some of which have contributed to its continued relevance to the changing demands of teacher education in our country.
B.Ed. is perceived as essentially the first formal preparation for educators, although its primary focus is on secondary school teaching. It is also seen as an initial professional degree for those who may wish to pursue further studies and professional specializations in management institutions and systems, policy making and planning, curriculum development, managing examinations, developing textbooks, guidance and counseling, working in alternative school systems, teacher education and educational research.
The B.Ed. programme in CIE at present is characterised by a rich School Experience Programme, an EPC Programme for students and many Co-Curricular Activities including Sports which contribute towards more holistic teacher preparation.
B.Ed. is offered in three other colleges of the University of Delhi in addition to the CIE, namely Maharishi Valmiki College of Education, Lady Irwin College and Shyama Prasad Mukherjee College. An effort is made for facilitative inter institutional collaboration and coordination on all-important decisions concerning this programme.
