Earlier known as UP BTC, Uttar Pradesh Diploma in Elementary Education (UP D.EL.Ed) is a two-year teacher training programme for which the selection procedure is conducted by the Uttar Pradesh Basic Education Board. The main purpose of the selection is to select eligible candidates who can do roles like teachers, assistant teachers, student counsellors and tutors. Earlier, the selection used to be done on the basis of class 12th marks. Thus, no entrance exam was conducted. However, from the year 2021, the Yogi government is planning to conduct an entrance exam for D.El.Ed. Admission.
The selected candidates are then required to acquire professional knowledge through four semesters. The UP D.El.Ed programme aims at preparing or providing training to the teachers for classes I to VIII. The primary motive behind this is to eradicate social and gender discrimination while fulfilling the basic need of education for each and every child.
Till now, Pariksha Niyamik Pradhikari, the BTC exam regulatory authority, was solely accountable for the UP D.El.Ed shortlisting. As per the latest news, the application process for the UP BTC (D.El.Ed) will start in September 2021.
UP BTC 2021 Latest Updates & Notification: As per the recent updates, from 2021 onwards, admission to D.El.Ed will be done based on an entrance exam. The application process for the same will start in September 2021.
