UPSESSB Shikshak Bharti: MCA degree holders can also become computer assistant teachers

UPSESSB Teacher Recruitment: Candidates holding MCA degree will also be able to become assistant teachers (LT grade) of computer subjects in 2355 government high schools and inter colleges of the state. The requisition for the recruitment of teachers has been sent to the Uttar Pradesh Public Service Commission by the Directorate of Education, but due to non-updation of the rules, the advertisement is not being issued. Recently, Director of Secondary Education Dr. Mahendra Dev has sent a proposal to Additional Chief Secretary Deepak Kumar for approval of the amendments made in the Uttar Pradesh Subordinate Education (Trained Graduate Category) Service (Sixth Amendment) Rules 2023.

For Assistant Teacher Computer, first B.Tech/B.E (in Computer Science) or Bachelor of Science in Computer Science or Bachelor of Science in Computer Application or Bachelor of Computer Application or Graduation from NIELIT with higher level course along with B.Ed or equivalent degree was mandatory. . In the new rule, along with the old qualification, MCA (Masters in Computer Application) has also been recognized. Earlier B.Ed was a mandatory qualification which has now been recognized as a preferential (weightage) qualification.

It is believed that the amendment in the qualification will remove the shortage of computer teachers in government schools. Earlier, the Public Service Commission had invited applications for 1673 posts of computer teachers in the LT Grade (Assistant Teacher) recruitment of 2018, out of which only 36 posts could be filled. A budget provision was made in the financial year 2022-23 to hire computer teachers (outsourced) in 890 government schools through GeM portal at an honorarium of Rs 25 thousand per month. A meeting was also held on 27 January 2023 at the State Project Office of Samagra Shiksha Abhiyan, Lucknow. But the appointment could not be made till date.

BFA degree holders will be able to become art teachers without B.Ed:

There is also a proposal to change the qualification of art teachers in the new rules. Earlier, for Assistant Teacher Arts, graduation with Arts or Fine Arts subject and B.Ed or equivalent degree was mandatory. Now, B.Ed degree is mandatory for graduates with Arts subject. But those doing Fine Arts (BFA) will be able to apply directly. For these, B.Ed has been considered as preferential (weightage) qualification.
