4-Year Integrated Teacher Education Programme (ITEP)
Study B.Sc - B.Ed @ IIT Bhubaneswar
ITEP is a comprehensive four year undergraduate programme that emphasizes a dual-major approach, and seamlessly integrates teacher education within the broader higher education system. Set to commence from the academic session of 2023-24, it offers students the opportunity to pursue Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) with Bachelor of Education (B.Ed.), or Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) with B.Ed., or Bachelor of Commerce (B.Com.) with B.Ed. Students enrolled in this programme will complete their studies within a condensed timeframe of four years, as opposed to the conventional five-year duration mandated by the current B.Ed. Curriculum. ITEP will be available for all students who choose teaching as a profession after passing the exit examination of Higher Secondary (10+2) in any discipline (Humanities/ Science/ Commerce/ Others). The National Testing Agency (NTA) will be responsible for conducting the admission process for the programme. This will be done through the administration of the National Common Entrance Test (NCET).
ITEP marks a significant milestone in the field of teacher education.
