Rational

There is a need to improve the qualifications of the TVET teachers holding BEd degree to enhance the quality of teaching and learning process. There is no university offering graduate programe where these BEd first degree holders are eligible to get admitted in textile and garment fields. With almost no chance to upgrade their qualification, most of them are remaining with first degree for many years, which is considerably affecting the quality of teaching and learning process in the country. This newly designed M.Ed Programme definitely addresses such problem.
