The Bachelor of Elementary Education (B.El.Ed.) programme is a four-year integrated professional degree programme of Elementary Teacher Education offered after the senior secondary (class XII) stage of school. This is a bilingual programme, conceptualized by the Maulana Azad Centre for Elementary and Social Education (MACESE) of the Department of Education, University of Delhi. Launched in the academic year 1994-95, the programme is an attempt towards fulfilling the need for professionally qualified elementary school teachers.
B.El.Ed. is designed to integrate the study of subject knowledge, human development, pedagogical knowledge and communication skills. Both professional and academic options are available to the students who graduate with a B.El.Ed. Degree.
The introduction of the B.El.Ed. programme in undergraduate colleges of the University of Delhi marks a move towards creation of a cadre of Elementary Education professionals – a long awaited promise, beginning with the conception of the Central Institute of Education in 1947.
Through the B.El.Ed. programme, concerns of elementary education have been integrated into the University system with Delhi University taking the lead. It has also upgraded the professional status of the elementary school teacher by providing for a University degree for elementary education. At present, the programme is being offered in eight women colleges of the University of Delhi.
The B.El.Ed. programme aims to produce graduates of high calibre in the field of teacher education. A lot of effort is spent in the training of students and giving them a supportive and stimulating environment. The programme is at present being offered by select under-graduate colleges of the University of Delhi. Over 3000 students have already graduated from these colleges since 1998. A good number of them have been placed in government and private schools as professionally qualified elementary school teachers. Others are pursuing post-graduate studies and research in disciplines like education, linguistics, psychology, languages, history, social work, sociology, mathematics and political science. Many B.El.Ed. graduates are pursuing research in educational studies in Central Universities. Some of them are working as teacher educators. Given below are some of the professional and academic options available for the B.El.Ed. graduates:
Teaching in elementary schools (Classes I to VIII): B.El.Ed. graduates are eligible for appointment in MCD/NDMC/Sarvodaya Vidyalayas in Delhi, Kendriya Vidyalayas and Navodaya Vidyalayas all across India and Private Schools.
