  • So far, you have done well by acquiring both - B.Com( Hons) and M.Com though the later part has been achieved through IGNOU. Now you are seriously thinking to have a B.Ed qualification. In fact, B.Ed is the essential qualification prior to joining the teaching profession. This course comprises of different methods and scopes to motivate the students in the teaching and the methods suggested in the course are applied in the practical field. Patience,Dedication and inner interest are the chief qualities of teachers so they can mould the innocent minds. The tips suggested in this course are really helpful to change the mind of the students for the betterment.
    I would suggest you to take up this course from a recognised institution so that you get a call from a Government - school. You may choose IGNOU from where you can acquire this qualification, since this Institute provides quality education and is recognised through UGC. Moreover, you need not attend regular classes as is required for a regular BEd course from a recognised university. It would be a self - study course and the same can be pursued in the convenient time. Ensure that the final aggregate marks should not be less than 55 percent so as t get a call from a government - school.

  • If you are interested in teaching in Govt schools then BEd is an essential qualification. After doing postgraduation many people go for BEd for entering into Govt schools.
    You have to get admission in BEd in some recognized and preferably some reputed institution.
    Try to have more practical teaching experience in the schools attached for practice purposes to your BEd institution and this will definitely help you in your interview later for teaching posts in Govt.
    Anyway apart from teaching you have some scope to work in commercial line and specially in private organisations requiring qualified commerce personnels for various works related to chartered accountancy and business commerce. You can consider these opportunities also while going through job advertisements in newspapers or sites like ISC.
    Although if your aptitude is towards teaching you can focus for BEd only.

    Thoughts exchanged is knowledge gained.

  • To become a government teacher you have three ways.
    1. Become a lecturer in government college: For this government will be conducting a written test. You have to write that exam and then attend the interview.Government will be conducting examinations separately for Junior Lecturers and lecturers. If you feel your qualifying in the exam is difficult, get admitted for Ph.D in your University and complete that. Then you can get the lecturer post without written test.
    2. Become a teacher in govt high school: For this you have to join in B.Ed. This you can do as a regular candidate or in distance education mood. Many universities are offering this course. Once you complete this every year Zilla Parishat or Government will be recruiting teachers in their high school. Generally it will happen by interviews only. If you can try through any of your local big people posting will be easy. Generally many posts will be there so it will not be very difficult.
    3.Become a teacher in Primary School: Government is conducting a diploma course in Education Training for teachers in Primary schools. You can join in that training and chances of getting teacher post in Mandal schools and government schools are pretty.

    There is another way after completing your B.Ed or diploma. There are many corporation or Municipality schools and aided teacher posts, which are also government posts only. You can try in those schools.

    As far as I know these are the ways to become a teacher in government.

    always confident

  • You are having a post graduate degree in commerce and I feel it may very well enable you to try a job in the line of finance, accounting and company affairs.

    Today there are many job opportunities for commerce people and you can try in the following areas -
    Banking and accounting, Auditing, Funds management, Electronic marketing, Management consulting, Stock and share market related.

    In addition UPSC also recruits commerce postgraduates in various vacancies time to time. One can also attempt in that.

    There are various courses including PhD which are available after MCom and they prepare one for more prospective jobs like in microfinancing, derivative trading, investment banking etc.

    This was for the area where you have core competency and now coming to your aptitude. It is also necessary that if a person pursues a job of his choice and commensurate with his aptitude he will relish it.

    So if you are interested in teaching you will have to pursue BEd or go for PhD after which you can apply for lecturership.

    Knowledge is power.

  • You have completed your Graduation and Post-Graduation. Now, if you want to be a Government school-teacher, the next step would be to complete B.Ed or NTT (for primary teachers). Once you complete any of these two Degrees, you are required to appear in competitive examinations for selection of Teachers at different levels in your state. Generally the vacancies are announced once in a year.

    The teachers are generally appointed at three levels, viz., Post Graduate Teachers (who teach at X+II level), Trained Graduate Teachers (who teach at VI-X levels) and Primary Teachers (who teach upto Vth Standard). Separate examinations are held for each level.

    Similarly, Central Government (Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan) also announces vacancies of teachers and fills these vacancies (of Kendriya Vidyalayas all over the country) through competitive examination once in a year.

    So far as your Masters degree is concerned, it is fully recognised and you won't face any problem for your PG Degree from IGNOU.

    Beware! I question everything and everybody.

  • As you have done B.Com. (honours) from DU and done M.Com. from IGNOU and didn't get success in qualifying for govt job exams and now you have changed my path towards teaching. In India for Primary teacher you must have done ETT course and for master you have o do B.Ed course and For lecturer post you have done M.ed or MA. Once you have cleared these courses you are eligible for the teacher eligibility test(TET). Then you can apply for teacher post if you cleared the State TET exam. Levels of teacher are :-
    1. Primary Teacher (J.B.T) from Class 1 to 5
    2. Master from class 6 to 8
    3. Lecturer from class 9 to 12

  • If one has a degree and a B. Ed. Qualification one is qualified for school teaching post. However, the selection is through Public Service Commission. You have to come through successfully in the PCS test. Depending on vacancies, PSC will advertise it and the test will be conducted. Based on the results they will prepare a rank list. When the education department report the vacancy list the names from the rank list will be supplied to them. Through an interview the selection will be done. Of course, for selection reservation formula will be applicable. This procedure is based on the teacher selection done in Kerala State. In other States differences may be there in the procedure.
    For getting a teaching post in Higher Secondary school additionally one has to be a Masters degree holder.
