Suraasa announces biggest scholarship test of India for aspiring teachers


The teacher growth-focused ed-tech platform, Suraasa, has announced All India Teachers’ Scholarship Test (AITST) to support aspiring and in-service teachers in preparing for and clearing the Teacher Eligibility Tests
TETs). Under the New Education Policy 2020, National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE) has made it compulsory for all teachers to clear TETs. Earlier, clearing TETs was a mandate only for government school teachers of Class I to Class VII. With the introduction of the scholarship test, Suraasa aims to prepare the TET aspirants and uplift the low passing percentage in the tests since their inception in 2011.

The company aims to support the government in ensuring that we have skilled teachers in India who are passionate, highly qualified, professionally trained, and well-equipped with modern teaching standards.

Apart from this, the company has also announced a partial scholarship of up to INR 50,000 per learner, that will be granted to teachers who want to enrol in Suraasa’s long-term qualifications like Professional Certificate in Teaching and Learning (PgCTL) and the upcoming UK Level 5 and 7 Teaching Qualifications that help teachers in getting international teaching jobs abroad.
