Lots and lots of questions come to one’s mind when they want to choose teaching as a profession. Especially now, when the B.Ed candidates are also eligible for primary teacher’s post (Notification by NCTE).
B.Ed Eligibility Revised rules for Primary Teacher jobs by NCTE:
- All the Bachelor of Education | B.Ed degree holder with at least 50% marks are eligible for primary teacher posts.
- And if the B.Ed degree holder candidate joins as Primary Teacher, it would be necessary to undergo 6-months Bridge Course in Elementary Education recognised by NCTE and that should be within 2 years from the date of joining.
D.Ed or JBT or D.El.Ed candidates are still eligible for primary teacher posts. D.Ed is a good option for those who want to have an early career in teaching or for those who due to some reason can’t do graduation. For D.Ed, one must have at least 50% marks in 10+2 plus English as language is mandatory. After completing the D.Ed course, one must clear relevant state’s TET exam to be eligible for government primary teacher jobs. Know more about JBT | D.Ed | D.El.Ed course on JBTAdmission.
B.Ed is best if you are a graduate or post graduate with 50%marks in either. As B.Ed candidates are now also eligible for primary teacher posts, it’s more of a benefit for doing B.Ed rather than D.Ed. The after-process is same as D.Ed, candidate has to clear TET exam of their respective state to be eligible for government jobs.
So, to sum up, it totally depends on one’s qualification to go for which course. But the answer to which one is better- D.Ed or B.Ed, is B.Ed | Bachelor of Education. After doing B.Ed, one get a degree rather than a diploma, is eligible for both PRT and TGT posts and also private schools prefer B.Ed teachers rather than D.Ed.
