National Accreditation Council for Teacher Education

National Accreditation Council for Teacher Education
In this age of information and knowledge, quality education has become synonymous with economic and socio-cultural sustainable development of a nation. Quality assurance needs direction, guidance and certain mechanisms. Accreditation process is considered an effective measure to achieve these goals. The need to establish an accreditation authority was very much felt by the teachers, educators & concerned authorities which would periodically evaluate and monitor degree programs offered by various Teacher Education institutions. This authority has been established and termed as National Accreditation Council for Teacher Education (NACTE).

Accreditation is an evaluation process to determine the quality of an institution or program using preset standards. Accreditation is normally carried out on a peer review basis by competent, non-governmental agencies such as national, regional, and/or local associations. It is, in essence, a collegial activity conducted by institutions that have voluntarily organized to form and to support an accrediting association. These accrediting agencies or associations prepare standards for educational institutions and subsequently apply these standards when evaluating individual institutions seeking accreditation
