The government of India has realized the importance of educating the children in order to make way for a more aware youth that will contribute towards the progress of the nation. This is the source of the huge demand for teachers today. Also known as D.Ed as well as DipEd, the diploma for education is a course that lasts for about a year. For students who cannot afford to invest two years in a full time B.Ed (Bachelor of Education) course, this is definitely a wise alternative. The diploma in education can be pursued after completion of the 10+2 examinations and it would enable the students to apply for teaching posts in kindergarten schools. The course provides knowledge regarding a number of aspects of education like language, education policy, literacy, curriculum and information technology. As far as the eligibility of this course is concerned, the students need to have passed their 10+2 examinations from a recognized board.
