Kolkata: The West Bengal Government on Friday clarified the policy on placement of TET passed candidates for the teaching job in government-run schools. The government informed the Calcutta High Court that the candidates who have passed the TET examinations and have BEd. degrees will be placed first in the vacant posts followed by the untrained non-Bed. candidates.
Teacher Eligibility Test known as TET is an Indian entrance examination for teachers. The test is mandatory for getting teaching jobs in government schools from Class 1 to Class 8.
A few years back it was alleged that the ruling party had recruited untrained candidates for government schools after the mandatory TET exam. Trained candidate who did not get the opportunity for the job had filed a case. But those untrained candidates completed their BEd courses during their teaching period and hence can now be called as trained candidates.
