NURSERY PRIMARY TEACHER TRAINING (N.P.T.T)
DURATION :- 1 OR 2 YEARS
ELIGIBILITY :- 10TH
What is N.P.T.T.?
NPTT translates into Nursery and Primary Teacher Training. As the name suggests, a certification or diploma course in NPTT will make you eligible to become a teacher at the nursery and primary level.
What do you learn at N.P.T.T.?
Provided you select the diploma course, the subjects that you will have to study will be varied. The basic topics will include the principle of education, methods of teaching, art and craft design, lesson plans, first aid workshops, and numerous case studies. The goal is to make you privy with the nursery and primary level classrooms and make a teacher out of you. In the one-year course, only the basic subjects will be covered and you will gain the absolutely necessary skills to land a job.
Why should you consider a diploma in NPTT?
Let’s answer this question from two angles. First, considering that you have a passion for teaching, NPTT is necessary to get a start at the primary and the nursery level. You may opt to go for B. Ed but that will consume 3 years. NPTT, however, is a maximum of two years’ course and gives you an added year in the professional world. You can gather teaching experience during this time, which when added to your internships and training during your diploma, will make your profile look healthier than any other fresher after three years.
Second, on lines of future prospects, the scopes for NPTT diploma holders are truly endless. Schools will rarely shut down and the demand for skilled teachers at the nursery and primary level are at an all-time high. There is still a bit of saturation at the senior level but the anything below that is quite empty. You can readily fit in after a short NPTT course and your diploma will do the rest to raise your package amount. This trend will continue in the coming years and you can reap all the benefits in full.
