As per the policy of the new education system, by 2030, a teacher will require a minimum of B.Ed degree of 4 years for teaching in any institution. Continued action will be taken against lower quality Autonomous Teacher Training Institutions (TEIs).

All types of occupational education and training will be a fundamental part of the higher education system, to strengthen the base of the students for different professions. 

An internship of 10 days in a year will also be provided to the students in local vocations according to the area or region. 

Conclusion
