National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 presents a watershed moment in the Indian Education Policy ecosystem. Redesigning the higher education ecosystem as envisaged by NEP 2020 requires strengthening the role of the faculty.
The salient objectives of the scheme as per alignment with NEP are:
Improving the quality of Education at all levels by infusing quality and Excellence in our teachers and teaching.
Faculty members will get trained to impart holistic education, imbibing the ideals of India-centric ethics and human values.
In order to nurture faculty at different level particularly at the early stage of their career, thereby creating a pool of potential leaders for generational transition, the Ministry of Education has conceptualised faculty leadership development programme namely ‘Nurturing Future Leadership Program’, under the aegis of Malaviya Mission Teacher Training Programme (MMTTP). This will be a prestigious, selection-based leadership development programme which would be open for all levels of faculty of public funded higher educational institutes.
