We study the effects of various types of education and training on the productivity of teachers in promoting student achievement. Previous studies on the subject have been hampered by inadequate measures of teacher training and difficulties in addressing the non-random selection of teachers to students and of teachers to training.
We address these issues by estimating models that include detailed measures of training, a rich set of time-varying covariates, and student, teacher, and school fixed effects.
We find that elementary and middle school teacher productivity increases with experience (informal on-the-job training). The largest gains from experience occur in the first few years, but we find continuing gains beyond the first five years of a teacher's career.
In Order to make increment in knowledge and skills of middle school as well as nursery and primary teacher there is a huge requirement of teacher training. Teacher training is very beneficent in order to maintain the teaching quality of a teacher. Such teacher training courses fosters and emphasizes the teaching skills of the students so as to transform them from novice to a trained teacher.
There are several courses provided by teacher training institutions such as NTT (Nursery Teacher Training), Montessori Teacher Training, NPTT(Nursery Primary Teacher Training), PTT (Primary Teacher Training), B.ed (Bachelor Of Education) etc. The courses provided by such institutions are on the basis of eligibility criteria. Different courses required different eligibility as well.
