Thrissur: Around 1200 assistant professor appointments will be made in the Arts and Science colleges in the state. Procedures to initiate the appointment of 600 professors will be included in the upcoming budget. The rest will be made later.
The NAC accreditation grade was affected in colleges which lacked permanent teachers. Most of the colleges had obtained lower grades. In the wake of this government has given green signal to the appointments.
The appointments will be made in 66 government and 192 aided colleges. It is hinted that a notification regarding the appointment of 114 teachers to various government colleges will be issued by the higher education department, next week.
Also changes are suggested in the implementation of credit-semester system. The unification of holidays, exams and results announcement will be instructed to the universities as there are exams twice a year.
The syllabus will be modified once in three years. The equivalence certificate system will be removed.
The curriculum will be modified so as to facilitate students to change from the course they joined to another syllabus.
