Teacher and Education Courses In Pakistan

The profession of teaching is highly respected in this world. For the training of teachers many teachers’ training courses are established in Pakistan. It is the responsibility of the state to do proper training of teachers. Different types of teachers training workshops and courses are being arranged by every institution in our country.

Teacher training has a good impact not only on teachers but also on students. The teacher’s training programs are a source of sharing information regarding new and unique methods of teaching. The importance of teacher training cannot be denied because when a teacher is trained then he can educate the young generation very well.

In Pakistan the primary level government school teachers are trained in three ways: through Government Colleges and Elementary Education (CGETs), the distance education program of the Allama Iqbal Open University, and teacher training courses administered in high schools. The graduates of these institutions are taught a similar curriculum and receive the Primary Teaching Certificate (PTC) at the end of a course that lasts one year.
