Entire TGT Syllabus- Maths & Science

TGT is a term used to address a teacher who has completed their teaching training. TGT (Trained Graduate Teacher) is not only a course, but it is a graduate individual trained in teacher education.  TGT teachers are deemed eligible to teach the below 10th class students, including 10th standard students.

TGT or Trained graduate teachers  as it is commonly known are educators who contribute towards teaching at the secondary level in schools. These are specialised teachers that have an important role to play in preparing the students for the major challenges that are associated with higher education.

It is important to understand that these teachers are trained to manage the level of education for Standard 6 to standard 10 that essentially comprises complex subjects and topics. These teachers have a special syllabus that they need to follow so that they can prepare the students accordingly for the examination that they have to give.

The syllabus developed for TGTs are unique because they answer to the strength of the teachers that have been assigned to educate the students. For example the TGT maths syllabus comprises specific and complex problems including differential calculus and complex arithmetic. At the same time, the  TGT maths syllabus also comprises relationship concepts and reasoning abilities. Each of these problems are important for the students to learn, so that they can develop a strong foundation for managing and athletic problems such as differential calculus at ten plus two levels.

As a result, not only the tgt maths syllabus has been developed specifically to test the ability of the students to manage mathematical Complex problems, but also to prepare the teachers to manage questions from the students. Same will also be true for either English syllabus or History syllabus depending on the objective that these teachers have been given. 

It is important to highlight that the prospective teachers who want to become a part of TGT are required to complete a certain level of education.For example, it is important for the prospective teachers to at least complete their postgraduate in the desired subjects they want to teach before becoming part of the curriculum. this is important so that the teachers gain a basic understanding of not only the subject but also how to teach the subject to the students.
