The National Institute of Teacher Education (NITE) will be introducing the four-year integrated BA.Ed and BSc.Ed programs as per the recommendation from a committee formed by the HRD Ministry.The programs are meant for the teachers from pre-primary to senior secondary schools.

The ministry had constituted a committee of experts last year to prepare a comprehensive paper for the establishment of a Central University of Teacher Education, but, on the basis of a report submitted by the committee, it was decided to establish the NITE. "The NITE is neither expected to nor can address all the existing lacunae in the system, it, however, would attempt to address some of the key disconnects in the field, meet the professional requirements of teachers and teacher educators, provide policy guidelines and establish benchmarks in the field of teacher education," the panel's report said.

Developing discourses in education to lead national policies and practices at par with emerging thoughts, research findings and initiatives in teacher education globally are among the other responsibilities of the NITE.

The institute will also have to play an advisory role to the National Council of Teacher Education (NCTE) and the HRD Ministry on planning, research, funding, quality benchmarking and related policy matters in teacher education.
