    But there is a gap of 8 years after working as a computer teacher in middle school with 9000 Rs salary. I have excellent English speaking skills.
    Can you recommend a good short course to learn computer skills to upgrade my salary?

  • If you want to upgrade your skills in computer area and want to teach in school then there are some courses which can be beneficial to you.

    Some of such courses are basic computer hardware, basic HTML and basic computer software for which you can have a short certificate course from any private computer course center.

    You are already teaching computer basics in your school so after getting upgraded in above courses you can ask your school administration to allow you to teach it to the concerned classes.

    Another thing is there are some universities in India which offer B.Ed. course through correspondence. You can try that as your prospect in getting a better job elsewhere will be increased.

    If you can afford financially then you can consider to go for one year regular teachers diploma in computer science which is offered by some universities/ colleges in India.

  • If you are passion in teaching profession, then go for the same and do not worry about computer knowledge. Basic computer knowledge is necessary for everyone nowadays but you can learn through some online courses available. You can learn MS-Word, MS-Excel and MS-Powerpoint which may be helpful for your presentation if needed. Otherwise plan for your career by doing a degree related to your teaching professional.

    Just apply for B.Ed, and after that go for P.G Course which will add more weightage for your teaching professional. If you are willing to go further, apply for Ph.D and can be a professor in a well reputed college. You will get a decent salary with all the above qualification if you possess.
