Integrated Teacher Education Programme (ITEP)

North Lakhimpur College (Autonomous) offers the Integrated Teacher Education Program (ITEP) B.A. B.Ed. and B.Sc. B.Ed. from the academic session 2023-24 for the aspiring students who have successfully passed the Senior Secondary (+2) or its equivalent examination or as per NEP 2020 structure 5+3+3+4 of schooling.

ITPE integrates everything to empower teachers and help them to do their job as effectively as possible. In addition, the integration of disciplinary and professional knowledge caters to the requirement to recruit the very best and brightest for the teaching profession at all levels (5+3+3+4).

The ITEP programme emphasizes on preparing teachers as envisaged in Pedagogical and Curricular restructuring of school education under NEP 2020. Apart from preparing teachers for the school education system in the country, the disciplinary knowledge gained in different subjects would help the student-teachers to gain in-depth knowledge in their specific subject(s) which would ensure admission to higher studies in that disciplinary stream and for higher professional qualification.

The ITEP aims at the dual purpose of providing student teachers disciplinary knowledge along with the professional knowledge in an integrated manner. Since the program will be equivalent to an Undergraduate Degree (B.Sc./B.A./ B.Com.) and Teacher Education Degree, the curriculum of this program includes different courses and activities essential for both the degrees. The ITEP offered by North Lakhimpur College (Autonomous) will be a dual-major holistic Bachelor’s degree. This programme will prepare teachers for the new curricular and pedagogical structure of school education as reconfigured, to make it responsive and relevant to the developmental needs and interests of learners at different stages of their development, corresponding to the stages like Fundamental, Preparatory, Middle and Secondary guided by the 5+3+3+4 design.
