With an aim of providing training and nurturing qualified talent in the education space, Waymade college of education, an institute based in Vallabh Vidyanagar, has been offering B. Ed and M. Ed (English medium) programs. The institute, affiliated with Charutar Vidya Mandal (CVM) University, recently organised its annual placement ceremony for their final year students which witnessed interest from around 35 schools participating (a few in person and a few virtually) and recruited shortlisted teachers.
On this occasion, the Institute also signed MoUs with around 20 English medium schools from various parts of Gujarat to nurture the wanna-be educators. With an intent of targeting and benefitting most of them during this global pandemic, not just regular final year students but the alumni were also invited to appear for the placement process. The schools recruited the teachers for various positions like Principal, Coordinator, Post Graduate Teacher, Trained Graduate Teacher, and Primary Teacher. They were recruited with a decent package ranging from Rs. 1,80,000/- to 9,00,000/- lacs per annum for various positions. Appointment and Job Offer letters to the selected candidates were provided on the same day.
Speaking on this occasion, Shri Mehulbhai Patel, the member, Governing body, CVM University said, “Charutar Vidya Mandal University is committed to quality education, students, parents, society, state, and nation. This event is the output of the harmonious mix of our vision and commitment with the national education policy 2020.”
“Looking to the needs of the society and the NEP 2020, this was an initiative to acknowledge that realistic and practical goals of NEP are just a step ahead, awaiting our initiative.”, he added further.
Dr. Avdhesh Jha, Dean, Faculty of Education, CVM University and Principal, Waymade College of Education said, under the able leadership of our leaders, focussing only on quality education, we shall do the needful best to satisfy the needs of the society with the best teachers having love, care, dedication, and devotion. Even in this time of the pandemic, the efforts that we placed in education paid with the best placement of our students as well the association with the topmost schools of the state.
The schools, mainly from districts of Vadodara, Rajkot, Bhavnagar, Kheda, Anand, and a few from other parts of Gujarat participated in the placement ceremony. This connotes the reachability of the institution across Gujarat and thus the idea of the NEP to expand our horizons.
This event, the MoUs and the efforts are likely to solve many purposes while strengthening our partnership. Whereas this event satisfies the aspirations of the job aspirants even in this time of corona and shows the status and importance of education and teachers, on the other hand, it connotes the societal inclination towards education. With the idea of No compromise with quality education that promotes and adds to this event, this event emerges as a consequence of NEP 2020. Such events help the school have better leadership and education along with the job satisfaction of the teachers. Needless to say, it adds to the strength of our alumni and turns our strength.
