Teachers are a key component of quality schooling. Pertinent here are teachers' knowledge of subject matter as well as of teaching practices-curriculum, pedagogy and assessment, and their commitment to high student achievement. Teacher preparation and continuing professional development are both important in building teacher competence. Recruitment, training and retention of teachers, their conditions of work and remuneration, and social expectations of them are broad factors to consider.
Establishment of the NTRCA has ushered in optimism in the civil society that quality teachers would now find suitable places in the non-govt. educational institutions. The ultimate objective of the body is to ensure quality education by appointing quality teachers.
