PITE, SEC education centres merged
Lahore: Realizing the overlapping functions, the waste of human resource and the need for an integrated body, the Punjab government has merged the Provincial Institute of Teachers Education (PITE) and the Science Education Centre (SEC) into the Directorate of Staff Development (DSD).
The government has also notified the amended role/functions of the integrated set-up of the DSD. The government move aims at evolving a well-trained, motivated, knowledgeable, competent and committed cadre of teachers and education personnel who understand quality education and are capable of imparting it to government school students. Sources in the School Education Department said that the organizations merged into DSD had become redundant with the passage of time, adding the tasks of the three organizations also overlapped.
The sources, however, said the fresh move had created unrest among the employees of PITE and SEC who were feeling insecure because of the merge. Those sitting at the top positions of both the organizations were also confused as to what their position would be in the new set up.
An official seeking anonymity said the activities of SEC were limited and it had little knowledge of what was going on there. žThere was no practical presence of SECÓ, he said, adding the role of PITE was also ambiguous in the presence of DSD". He said the PITE was established in the province in 2,000, adding one of its main functions was to develop instructional material for in-service and pre-service teacher training.
The official said the development of instructional material was also the job of the PITE which had been working as constituent institution of University of Education until 2005. To a question, he said the amendments in relevant service rules, organogram, details of posts to be surrendered, created and renamed would be notified soon in consultation with Finance Department and Regulation Wing of the Service & General Administration Department (S&GAD). According to the notification, functions of the DSD include preparing a large pool of Master Trainers through residential courses at DSD campus and providing pre-service and in-service teacher training in Punjab, IT training of IT teachers, science teachers, math teachers and head teachers.
The training of educational managers i.e. EDOs DEOs, DDEOs and AEOs would also be function of DSD in future. It is pertinent to mention that, at present, the Punjab government has been conducting training for EDOs and others important slots in collaboration with the Government College University (GCU) Lahore. The decision was strongly criticized by teachers who asked why, in the presence of DSD, the task had been awarded to the GCU.
The notification further reads that DSD would also organize science fairs, science quiz and science fiction films to popularize science subjects among the students. The news

Faisalabad: The Punjab government will launch a 'Matric-tech scheme' at workers welfare schools working under the labour ministry to impart students different skills coupled with general education.
Punjab Labour Minister Muhammad Ashraf Sohna said this while addressing a gathering at the Workers Welfare School in Johar Colony here on Thursday. The minister said that Rs50 million would be allocated for starting the technical workshop in each workers welfare school.
He said the children of workers would be extended quality education facilities while the Punjab government would bear expenditures of workers' children who intended to acquire education from abroad.
He said that graduate level classes would be initiated in these schools besides providing representation to labour representatives in the administrative committees of these institutions. The minister said the governing body of the social security had approved the proposal for the establishment of medical colleges in Faisalabad and Lahore for the children of industrial workers.
He said the children of the registered industrial workers would be provided jobs in the labour department. The government, he said, was committed to imparting every child of labourers education because terrorism had cropped up due to ignorance and poverty.
He said that labour ministers of the NWFP, Sindh and Punjab would contact the Balochistan government for initiating the education project for Balochistan workers children. Meanwhile the Islami Jamiat Tulaba staged a protest rally against the district administration for its refusal to hold a students convention at the Dhobi Ghat on Thursday.
About 300 students from the state-run colleges gathered at the Zila Council Chowk. They were carrying IJT flags, banners and placards inscribed with anti-US slogans. After demonstrating outside the City Police Office, protesters reached the Dhobi Ghat and forced their entry into the ground after breaking open the main gate locks.
However, the police officers convinced them not to hold the convention in the ground due to security risk. The students, however, held the convention for a brief period outside the main entrance of the ground. Addressing the gathering, Jamaat naib amir Sirajul Haq said that rulers had sold the entire nation to the US.
IJT nazim Atiqur Rehman said that despite hurdles created by the district administration participation of students in the convention had proved that youngsters were alive to guard the country. IJT's Faisalabad division nazim Umer Abbas announced a protest day on Friday (today) against the district administration for not allowing them to organize the students convention. Dawn
