Scheme

 

Of

 

National Hospitality Teachers Eligibility Test

 

(NHTET)

 

to be conducted by

 

NCHMCT

 

  1. A Brief Note

 

There was a general perception among public, leading educationists and the Hoteliers that, well qualified person were not being attracted towards teaching profession. Concerns were also expressed about the criteria that were employed for the selection of teachers. It was increasingly realized that quite a large number of people who neither had the competence nor the aptitude for teaching made an easy entry into this profession.

 

The National Policy on Education, 1986, which was debated in the Parliament also, states that:

 

“The method of recruitment of teachers will be reorganized to ensure merit, objectivity and conformity with spatial and functional requirements”.

 

To overcome to the situation and to maintain the quality in hospitality education the scheme of National Hospitality Teachers eligibility Test (NHTET) has been drawn up.

  1. Overview of the NHTET Scheme:

 

2.1      The scheme is to filter the best among the better to declare them eligible for Assistant Lecturer and Teaching Associates in NCHMCT affiliated IHMs and will be known as NHTET Scheme.

 

2.2      The scheme will be applicable to the citizen of India who fulfils the other eligibility criteria prescribed under this scheme.

 

2.3      The candidate declared eligible for Assistant Lecturer will have the only right to apply against any vacancy, if announced by NCHMCT affiliated IHMs, either of Government sector, PSU owned or Private sector. The NHTET qualified candidate will not have any right of automatic induction in NCHMCT affiliated IHMs. They have to face a separate selection process for induction as Assistant lecturer or Teaching Associates.

 

2.4      NoNCHMCT affiliated IHMs shall recruit any Teaching Associate or Assistant Lecturer under direct recruitment against any regular vacancy if the candidate does not have a valid NHTET pass certificate.
