Eligibility, Target Group and Duration

Teachers working in universities and colleges that are included under Section 2(f) of the UGC Act, even though they may not yet be fit to be included under Section 12 (B), may be invited to participate in the Refresher Courses, Orientation Programme, Short-Term Courses and Additional Courses. The teachers of colleges that do not yet come within the purview of Section 12(B), but have been affiliated to a university for at least two years, will be permitted to participate in the programmes/courses. However, they won’t be paid TA/DA and other allowances for attending these courses. For the Orientation Programmes, newly appointed Assistant Professors within two years of continuous service and all those teachers who require orientation for getting a higher grade will be allowed. Attendance in Orientation programmes would be must for placement in the higher grade pay. Selected candidates will be paid TA/DA as per UGC norms. However, participants attending Short-term Courses will not be paid TA/DA but local hospitality like accommodation (if required), service lunch and tea will be provided during the course period.

For the Refresher Courses, participation in the Orientation Programme is a prerequisite for admission. However, in exceptional cases a teacher may be allowed to complete a efresher Course prior to completion of an Orientation Programme. Also, there should be a minimum gap of one year between two courses, though it may be relaxed if adequate number of participants is not available or it is essential for the teacher to fulfill eligibility conditions for career advancement.

The Orientation Programme will be of four weeks duration, with minimum of 24 working days (excluding Sundays) and 144 contact hours (six hours a day). The refresher course will be of three weeks duration, with minimum of 18 working days (excluding Sundays) and 108 contact hours (six hours a day). If a participant fails to complete the requisite contact hours in a programme, he/she may be permitted to make up for the backlog hours at his/her own cost in another programme by the RCCB and HRDCs concerned.

Part time/ Ad hoc/temporary/contract teachers who have been teaching for at least three academic sessions in an institution which has been affiliated to a University for at least two years may be permitted to participate in the Refresher Courses, Orientation Programme, Short-Term Courses and Additional Courses to enhance their skills.

Universities and colleges must allow interested teachers to attend UGC -RCCB and HRDCs programmes based on their eligibility otherwise valid reasons will have to be intimated to the teacher concerned in writing.

Registration Fee

Every participant shall pay an admission fee (non- refundable) of Rs.1000/- at the time of admission to the course. The amount so generated will be kept at the disposal of the RCCB and HRDCs for the augmentation of RCCB’s and HRDCs infrastructure.
