State Council of Educational Research and Training (SCERT), Uttar Pradesh was established in 1981 for the development of curriculum and textbooks for school education in the State, teacher's training, educational evaluation, educational research, and innovation in teaching & learning. Main functions of SCERT, UP are organizing in-service and pre-service training programs for elementary teachers, developing a syllabus, textbooks, teacher's guide, and other useful materials for primary & upper primary classes, organizing Teacher Eligibility Test (TET) in State, granting affiliation to private institutes (recognized by NCTE) for running BTC / NTT course and deciding curriculum & evaluation process for education in the light of Part 7 Article 29 of Uttar Pradesh Right of Children to Free & Compulsory Education Rules 2011.
The National Council for Teacher Education, in its previous status since 1973, was an advisory body for the Central and State Governments on all matters pertaining to teacher education, with its Secretariat in the Department of Teacher Education of the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT). Despite its commendable work in the academic fields, it could not perform essential regulatory functions, to ensure the maintenance of standards in teacher education and preventing the proliferation of substandard teacher education institutions.
The UGC has the unique distinction of being the only grant-giving agency in the country which has been vested with two responsibilities: that of providing funds and that of coordination, determination, and maintenance of standards in institutions of higher education. Traditionally, UGC was entrusted with the task of co-ordination, formulation, and maintenance of the standards of university education. To this end, it engaged itself in, among other things, framing regulations on minimum standards of education, determining standards of teaching, examination and research in universities, monitoring developments in the field of collegiate and university education, disbursing grants to universities and colleges and setting up common facilities, services and programmes for a group of universities in the form of Inter-University Centres.
