Guidelines Issued For Coaching Centres In India No Fake Advertising No Admission To Students Below 16 Years
Govt Guidelines For Coaching Centres: The Ministry of Education issues Guidelines for Regulation of Coaching Centers 2024. Now Coaching Centres across the country can no longer admit children under 16 years old, as per the latest rules from the Ministry of Education. This new regulation also stops these centers from making false promises or assuring high scores to students.
Under the new guidelines, students must have completed their secondary school (12th standard) before they can enroll in any coaching Centres. This change aims to ensure that younger students are not pressured into early coaching.
These important guidelines are mainly for institutes that prepare students for entrance exams like JEE, NEET, CLAT, and other competitive tests after 12th grade. The decision comes in response to growing concerns about student suicides, fire incidents in coaching Centres, and the lack of essential facilities.
The Ministry has also set specific conditions for the registration of coaching Centres, ensuring better regulation and oversight of these educational institutions.
Some Important Govt Guidelines For Coaching Centres
The Union Ministry of Education has introduced comprehensive guidelines to enhance the quality and accountability of coaching centers across the country. Here’s a simplified breakdown of these new rules:
Mental Health Support: Coaching Centres must have a proper system for psychological counseling. They must inform parents about the psychologists and counselors available, including their names and working hours.
Tutor Training in Mental Health: Tutors are encouraged to undergo training in mental health to better guide and support students.
Strict Penalties for Non-compliance: Coaching Centres face a fine of up to Rs 1 lakh for not adhering to these guidelines. If found overcharging students, their registration may be canceled.
Separate Registration for Branches: Coaching centers with multiple branches must register each branch separately, treating each as an independent entity. The government will set up a web portal for this registration process.
Transparency in Testing and Career Guidance: Centres must inform students about the difficulty level of their tests and discuss other career options. Regular workshops on mental health should be conducted. Special provisions should be made to support disabled students.
Legal Framework and Regulation: These Guidelines for Coaching Centres will provide a legal framework for the operation of coaching institutes, focusing on co-curricular activities, career guidance, and psychological counseling.
