Recent times have seen the burgeoning of primary and secondary schools in India which are both government-aided and private schools. This has led to a massive need for teaching jobs in India especially in primary schools, which have grown at a bigger rate than secondary school. But the job of a primary teacher is no easy task as the training and education imparted by a primary teacher lays the very foundation on which a child later grows and develops.
Most schools recruit only those teachers, who have gone through a proper Primary Teachers Training course. In addition to that, experienced and aspirant primary teachers feel the need to be updated with the modern teaching methods and material and hence, opt to go through Primary Teacher Training before taking it up as a career.
An ideal Primary Teachers Training course trains the teachers to understand the psychology of children aged between two and twelve years old. A prospective primary teacher must be first made aware of the importance of their job and the long-lasting effect education has in the formative years of a child. They are made aware of the social, emotional, physical and mental needs of children because it is important to learn about needs of children before taking on the responsibility of educating them, which would help shape up their individual personalities. Primary teachers are responsible for creating in a child, a general consciousness about the environment and develop behavioral and moral values in them.
While undergoing a Primary Teachers Training course, a trainee not only learns about the teaching material required for primary teaching but also the latest techniques and skills of teaching best suitable for children of a specific age group. Lessons have to be planned and executed in a fashion both interesting and understandable to these young learners. Primary teacher training helps a teacher to learn and make lessons more interactive and demonstrative, which grabs the notice of a child and helps the child to retain the knowledge imparted. A teacher, who has successfully completed Primary Teacher Training, is better able to face the children confidently in a classroom and is competent in other and vital areas of teaching such as classroom management, disciplining students and crisis management while ensuring to give a free reign to the natural curiosity and imaginative power inherent in children to develop and grow into unique personalities.
The number of teaching jobs India and abroad for primary teachers is huge and the number of experienced and well-trained teachers proportionately low. Those with a good educational background and a knack for handling children could take up primary teaching as a career option. It is demanding in terms of time, energy and devotion but also very self-satisfying and noble. But a primary teacher must be well-trained before practicing this profession. Teaching jobs are not only available in India but also in huge numbers abroad and with the right course and experience, this can be a very lucrative career option.
