TGT and PGT
I will clear some of the confusion with regards to TGT,PGT and B.Ed.
TGT – Trained Graduate Teacher – Simply put,if you are just graduate and take up the B.Ed course,then you will be qualified to teach upto class 8.
PGT – Post Graduate Teacher – If you holding a post graduate degree + B.Ed then you can teach all the way till class 12.This can be any masters degree plus the B.Ed.It can also be an M.Ed.
Why choose B.Ed over D.Ed ?
the most fundamental reason as to why you should choose B.Ed over D.Ed or D.El.Ed is so that you can teach middle,high and senior high school levels.This means you will be allowed to officially and qualified to teach even upto 10+2 level of junior college.
If you want to pursue a teaching degree right after class 12 then go in for the Diplomas like D.Ed or D.El.Ed which both have the same sort of curriculum.If you want to attempt the B.Ed course it can only be done after you are a graduate.
The most important thing to note here is that B.Ed is a much more recognized degree as it is a bachelors degree compared to the diploma.More schools will give preference to the B.Ed and also you will ge ta higher salary plus you can teach higher classes.
