AICTE Sends Reminder Regarding Excessive Intake Of Students

After approving the increase in student intake in the engineering colleges of Gujarat state, the AICTE (All India Council for Technical Education) has sent a notice of excessive intake by the colleges. AICTE had earlier approved to increase the student count by 455 seats. The state colleges went ahead and increased the intake by 1,025 seats, an extra of 570 seats against the orders.

The council has not yet decided as what will happen to the candidates that have been admitted, in addition to the 455 seats, as was approved. The state colleges argue that they admitted the students only on reasons that the council will approve the request and put the number as 1,025.

AICTE, however, has stressed that the teacher-student ratio was high and under those circumstances the seats cannot be extended, more than what has been agreed and approved by the board. The board has said that there is a dearth of instructors and professors in the state and more students would bear the impact on the education and training.

The state directorate will pledge their case and everything has to be set right before the next academic session begins. In case of lapse, it would be very difficult for the students to obtain admissions in the same colleges. The state directorate has assured that the students won’t suffer unnecessarily.

No Online Tests For IIMs

The noted management institutes in India, IIMs have refuted the report that online tests will be conducted for the admissions in the premier institutes. There were reports earlier about the institutes and a committee to be working on the possible conduction of tests in 2008 and near future. However, the institutes have said the reports to be incorrect as there have been no such arrangements made.

The selection for the leading management institutes of India is marked by Common Admission Test or CAT. The scores obtained in the CAT determine the selection of candidates in IIMs as well as other affiliated management institutes. This year, many students were made to believe that the CAT tests would also be conducted online after the publishing of such news by some web sites. According to one such report, the CAT 2008 was supposed to be conducted online after the committee had consulted with the famous test conducting company Prometric. But, the officials have ascertained that there have been no such plans for 2008.

Common Admission Test or CAT is considered as one of the demanding entrance examinations in the world. A large number of students from different parts of the country appear in the test to get admitted to the popular B-schools of India. Test centers are located in different cities of India. No doubt the online test would make it easy for the students to appear in the tests, but the arrangement would have to be an extensive one.

UP to get 250 New ITIs Soon

Uttar Pradesh State Government has announced plans to build 250 new Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs) covering 638 backward blocks of Uttar Pradesh . This World Bank aided project will open new opportunities for aspiring youth of UP. Government has sanctioned about Rs. 2.5 crore for the project.

The state government has also decided to upgrade the infrastructure of existing 125 ITIs. The upgradation work will be done by private companies.

The increase in the number of ITIs in the upcoming years will help state government churn out more skilled and semi-skilled technicians for the industrial sector.

In India, central government has always stressed on vocational training and better provisions for education that imparts the required skills and training. Industrial training institutes that are established in the country have been training thousands of students every year, who are not enrolled in formal schools or institutes. The quality of education and facilities have to be improved and the true potential of vocational training is yet to be tapered.

Accreditation Body For The Schools In India

So far the primary and secondary education institutes in India have strived to stay put to their own standards. Private schools and government-aided schools have set forth their own standards regarding school governance and therefore have remained away from a universal accreditation system. However, the foremost accreditation agency of India, Quality Council of India, has started approaching the schools to get accredited.

The board, called National Accreditation Board of Education and Training, has developed the procedures for schools that seek the accreditation. Schools have to apply for the accreditation process, which is followed by the inspections and assessment by a team of professionals from the agency.

Schools are supposed to be fully prepared for the inspections as the inspection team checks even minute details. In case the school or governance is found as non-standard the school is given suggestions to act upon. If the school succeeds in plugging the loopholes and provides the best practices, the school is awarded the accreditation.

Is School Accreditation Necessary?

School accreditation is not obligatory. But by getting accredited the schools can enhance and improve the quality governance and management in the school. The accreditation provides uniform standards and also helps in identifying well managed and provided schools in India. The system is based on similar pattern as those in US, Netherlands and Australia.

The agency has a checklist and awards score to the respective schools. Some important parameters in the checklist include:

Education Quality Management
Governance and Management
Resource Management
Education Service Realization

The school accreditation, once it is awarded is applicable for four years and after that renewal is sought by the agency.

Government of India Reveals Its Programme To Universalize Secondary Education

In a move to universalize secondary education, government of India has initiated a programme along the lines of Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan.

The new programme that goes by the name Rashtriya Madhyamik Shiksha Abhiyan will work to make secondary education available, accessible and affordable to the students in the age group 15 and 16 years.

The Union HRD minister, Bandhu Tirkey has called upon CBSE, ICSE, Navodayas and government aided schools to send their details by July 20. As per the order, the head of the institutions i.e., Principals will have to send details including the foundation of the school, teaching capacity, school infrastructure, students’ performance, staff members, administrative officers, furniture and results.

Rashtriya Madhyamik Shiksha Abhiyan is said to focus on imparting equality among the students throughout the country. Some comprehensive arrangements have been made under 11th five-year plan. The objectives of the detailed programme have been estimated to be completed by 2020.
