B.Ed Colleges in Bangalore
Teaching as a profession has lately started gathering a lot of attention. With the setting up of a large number of schools the demand of teachers had also risen. But to be a teacher a B.Ed degree is a must from a recognized college. The eligibility is a graduate degree with at least 50% marks although there is some relaxation in the marks for the SC/ST candidates along with the reservation of seats. After various revisions in the course structure a lot of subjects other than the core teaching subjects have been included such as moral education, non-formal education, vocational guidance etc.
The B.Ed regular course is a comprehensive one year course which is aimed towards developing a teacher who can come down to the level of a student and make him understand the subject, introduce more and more practical knowledge, at the same time also solve any personal or emotional problem that a child faces during the course of study.
Bangalore has always been a huge education hub having a host of schools and colleges spread all across the city.
