NVS

(Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti)

 

 NVS Recruits for  TGT, PGT, AC, LDC and Others. Candidate who is seeking a job in Navodaya Vidyalaya can now apply the Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti (NVS) exam. 

The National Policy on Education-1986 envisaged setting up of residential schools, to be called Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas that would bring out the best of rural talent.

It was felt that children with special talent or aptitude should be provided opportunities to progress at a faster pace by making good quality education available to them irrespective of their capacity to pay for it. Such education would enable students from rural areas to compete with their urban counterparts on an equal footing.

The Navodaya Vidyalaya System which began as a unique experiment,is today unparalleled in the annals of school education in india and elsewhere. Its significance lies in the selection of talented rural children as the target group and the attempt to provide them with quality education comparable to the best in a residential school system.

“To provide good quality modern education-including a strong component of culture, inculcation of values, awareness of the environment, adventure activities and physical education to the talented children predominantly from the rural areas without regard to their family’s socio-economic conditions.”

 

The Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti (NVS) is an autonomous organisation under the Department of School Education & Literacy, Union Ministry of Human Resource Development. It has 8 Regional Offices at Bhopal, Chandigarh, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Lucknow, Patna, Pune & Shillong. There are over 630 Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas (JNVs) functional under the NVS across India except in Tamil Nadu. JNVs are fully residential schools, offering education up to Senior Secondary level and are located majorly in rural areas.
