Suraasa Announces Scholarship Test For Aspiring Teachers
Assured Scholarships up to 100 per cent that can be claimed against the TET Prep Course to kickstart in mid-August.
The teacher growth-focused ed-tech platform, Suraasa, has announced the All India Teachers’ Scholarship Test (AITST) to support aspiring and in-service teachers in preparing for and clearing the Teacher Eligibility Tests (TETs). Under the New Education Policy 2020, National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE) has made it compulsory for all teachers to clear TETs. Earlier, clearing TETs was a mandate only for government school teachers of Class I to Class VII. With the introduction of the scholarship test, Suraasa aims to prepare the TET aspirants and uplift the low passing percentage in the tests since their inception in 2011.
Suraasa aims to support the government in ensuring that we have skilled teachers in India who are passionate, highly qualified, professionally trained, and well-equipped with modern teaching standards.
The AITST has been designed by teacher education experts to help teachers get:
- TET ready with the country’s biggest online test
- An All India Rank without going to a test centre
- Assured Scholarships from 10 per cent up to 100 per cent for every teacher giving the test which they can claim against the TET Prep Course on the Suraasa platform
- Rs 20 Crores worth of scholarship pool
Apart from this, the company has also announced a partial scholarship of up to Rs 50,000 per learner, that will be granted to teachers who want to enrol in Suraasa’s long-term qualifications like Professional Certificate in Teaching and Learning (PgCTL) and the upcoming UK Level 5 and 7 Teaching Qualifications that help teachers in getting international teaching jobs abroad.
