In most developing countries, the situation is compounded by the urgent need to increase the teaching force substantially in the context of economic hardship and other constraints (Schwille, Dembelle & Schubert, 2007). The formulation of policy and design of teacher preparation and
continuing professional development programs optimally takes into account the whole spectrum of teacher training, that is teachers’ opportunities to learn from the beginning of their own prior schooling and throughout their teaching careers. “The status of the teacher reflects the socio-cultural ethos of a society. It is said that no people can rise above the level of its teachers. The government and the community should endeavor to create conditions which will help motivate and
inspire teachers on constructive and creative lines (NPE-1986).” Education commission (1964-66) reported that “the destiny of India is now being shaped in her classrooms” which indicate that education determines the level of prosperity, welfare and security of the people and teachers play a crucial role for imparting education in a positive way which in turn empowers human being.

Teaching is a profession requiring expertise in terms of Knowledge and skills. The person involves in this process should possess all round development in terms of cognitive, Affective and Psychomotor domains. There exists a wide gap between theory and the practical knowledge and
skills of teaching required in the actual classroom curriculum transaction process. The teacher should have a skill of constructivism as it is the present hour of talk. A routine bound-teacher cannot act in accordance with the emerging needs unless he or she is trained and frequently orient and update knowledge basing on the prevailing needs and situations. One of the most important requirements to promote and strengthen education is the training of teachers who are the key resources in the reform, redirection and renewal of education.

The college teachers, Education department of University, field functionaries, expert teacher educators and the Government should give their attention to tackle the problem of teachers’ training. For the development of the standards and quality of education, ideal teachers with passion for teaching and well being of society are necessary and for this there is a need of appropriate teachers’ training. Teacher preparation and development are key building blocks in developing effective teachers which needs a quality teacher training (in- service & pre- service).All teacher education will happen in multidisciplinary institutions – teacher education will be an integral part of the higher education system and the best
teachers will require training in a range of content as well as pedagogy, teacher education will gradually be moved into multidisciplinary colleges and universities (Draft National Education Policy, 2019). Higher education plays a great role for youth and human empowerment by giving
those ample opportunities to develop their knowledge and skills.

Some of the current problems of the teacher Education are:

  • Recruiting incompetent teacher educators resulting in deficiency of scholars.

  • The real staff position on paper and in actual is totally different. The real staff members are seen on inspection days only.
  • Poor standards with respect to resources and physical facilities for colleges of education.

  • Negative attitude of students to learn innovative practices of teaching.

  • Average and below average students are opting teacher training courses. Intellectual are not attracted to teaching profession.
  • All the above conditions are prevailing in most of the teacher Education Institutes now. There are many problems and issues in the system of teacher education.

On the other hand, Both New Education policy 2019 and NCTE are also suggesting four year Integrated B.Ed courses to make Education quality based.
