This is a four-year program designed to provide opportunities to prospective teachers to carry out action research, engage in critical thinking, study contemporary problems, and accomplish field work. Moreover, the prospective teachers will visit schools for practicum and interact with the communities in order to gain insight from practical experiences. These trained teachers after intensive education, will be able to transform the teaching and learning scenario in Pakistan. HEC has announced that from 2015, four-year B.Ed. program will be implemented and the previous shorter duration program will be considered obsolete. Hence, these trained teachers will be able to benefit from this degree by getting better professional options in various educational institutions.
