Uniqueness of the Courses

The GAPEdY has introduces the following uniqueness in its syllablus

  1. Integration of Adapted Physical Education in standard Physical Education Curriculum.
  2. Provision for value education, computers and communication skill in English.
  3. The regular physical education curriculum in MPEd, BPEd and CPEd have been designed to implement following radically innovative concept for the benefit of students.

Under the existing pattern of physical education in our country, a CPEd graduate (10+2+2) covers more than 80% syllabus of a BPEd degree (10+2+3+1). But a CPEd graduate is required to spend extra years for a Masters degree (2 yrs, MPEd) as he is required to revert back to his plus two datum, complete any bachelors degree, complete BPEd course. In the process, the diploma graduate spends 16 successful academic years [={(CPEd (12) + UG (3) + BPEd (1)}] thereby putting in extra 2 yrs as compared to students from regular stream. Moreover, a CPEd graduate is forced to re-do the 80% overlap that exist between BPEd and CPEd courses. The CPEd course mainly caters to rural students who are in need of securing immediate employment and are economically weak for pursuing higher education. It is natural that, once such financial constraints have been overcome after some years of service, the students feel the need to upgrade their academic qualification for better future prospects. Hence, to empowering economically less privileged sections of our society, the GAPEdY is offering regular courses in physical education that are designed to overcome this drawback by offering to CPEd graduate a bridge course of two years duration called Two Year Degree Credit Course to create parity with BPEd graduates. This shall enable the diploma holders direct entry in MPEd after 16 successful academic years and without compromising academic standards.
