Teachers have always commanded an undisputed position of respect in the society. Teachers are students for life, because the moment they stop learning, they cease to be teachers. Teachers need to be continuously learning and enhancing themselves to keep up with the changing world.
Keeping this in mind, the NCTE (National Council for teacher Education) has made it mandatory for aspirants aiming for a teaching career in government as well as some private schools to qualify the CTET (Central Teacher Eligibility Test) conducted by CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education).
Lakhs of students appear for CTET every year and surprisingly only a few thousand manage to clear either Paper 1 or II or both. Aspirants who wish to teach Classes I to V have to clear Paper I while aspirants who wish to teach Classes VI to VIII have to clear paper II. Aspirants who wish to get certified for teaching Classes I to VIII need to clear both the papers.
Hence it is very important for the teaching community to be equipped with the right knowledge and its appropriate application. With the right guidance and preparation, it is not difficult to clear CTET. What is required is consistent effort of brushing up the concepts and making sure that the level of understanding is raised.
It is with this objective that we have launched www.ctetonlineprep.com. The study content provided on the site tests the aspirant?s knowledge of all subjects.

Every year thousands of vacancies are posted in various government schools including KVs and NVs (Kendriya Vidyalaya and Navodaya Vidyalaya). To apply for these jobs, the candidates first need to clear CTET.
The candidates who have cleared CTET and wish to apply for KVs and NVs jobs, are then required to clear another written exam conducted by KV or NV Samiti. Once the result of this written exam is released, the shortlisted candidates are called for an interview. After the interview the final list of selected candidates is announced.
Remember, it is not only necessary to qualify CTET exam, but qualifying CTET exam with good percentage is also important. It increases the chances of getting jobs in not only Government schools but good Private Schools too.
Once you have qualified CTET exam, you should regularly stay in touch with teacher vacancies posted by various government and private schools.
