NACTVET standards require that to qualify as a technical teacher one should possess educational qualification in the relevant subject area at least one level higher than the level the teacher is teaching. In order to qualify as a technical teacher, one needs to have acquired instruction techniques and teaching methodology by attending a teacher’s training course in the relevant subject area and/or to have attended Competence–Based Education and Training (CBET) facilitation course. A technical teacher with the ability to teach should possess a range of personal qualities that can operate in the four domains of teaching/learning space; Institution; Community; and the teaching profession. In all these domains a teacher will interact with students, colleagues, parents and employers and should at all the times be expected to maintain high personal qualities for trustworthiness, honesty, reliability, sensitivity and respect for others’ dedications.
Each technical and vocational training institution is supposed to ensure that all teaching staff are trained on how to deliver CBET curricula and how to assess and handle semester examination results. Training on implementation of CBET curricula is conducted by the Council upon request. No one is allowed to teach using curricula approved by the Council before attending CBET course.
