Well, a B.Ed might land you up in a teaching job but a CTET Certification can help you get a ‘Great’ teaching job in both Government schools and private schools with a respectable pay package. While B.Ed is an undergraduate/college degree required to teach in Government and CBSE affiliated schools, CTET Exam is a Central Teacher Eligibility Test conducted by the Government of India. It has been put into place to make sure teachers in India are qualified enough to teach up to secondary class level.
Every year, many job vacancies are posted by the Government in Kendriya Vidyalayas, Navodayas, and State Government schools. CTET qualified teachers are eligible to apply for these vacancies and draw a salary as high as Rs.40,000 or Rs. 50,000 per month with retirement benefits.
Further, CTET Certification is not just accepted by the Government schools but also by the private schools. Many avenues open up after clearing the CTET Exam.
