    Eligibility criteria may vary in different kinds of schools. A Government school may have a criteria different than that of a self financed private school. As far CBSE is concerned, they conduct a Central Teacher Eligibility Test (CTET) and the minimum eligibility criteria to appear in the examination is as follows-
    1. Primary stage i.e. classes 1 to 5 teachers - A senior secondary certificate or its equivalent with at least 50 per cent marks or a degree and 2 years diploma in elementary education.
    2. Elementary stage i.e. classes 6 to 8 teachers - The candidates should be graduates with at least 50 per cent marks and a Bachelor in Education (B.Ed) program degree.
    Since the friend of the author has completed a graduation degree and B.Ed. degree, he/she may consider appearing in CTET. However in case he/she is interested in teaching in private schools, then the same can be contacted personally for knowing more.
