We, in Sai Shyam College of Education are committed to the quality teacher education and wish to provide best possible professional preparation to the future teachers. This professional training is aimed at not merely imparting knowledge in different subjects, but rather training in logical thinking which would enable the pupil - teachers to arrive at the right conclusion besides acquisition of knowledge. Education technology has a lot of potentiality to improve and manage different aspects of education system. Our future teachers must anticipate how they can match the traditional methods of instruction with the newer ideas about learning. Therefore teachers need to be trained from time to time as to keep pace with developments in related ideas and to work at maximum efficiency level. Teacher should be able to generate thirst for knowledge, search for truth and a spirit of enquiry and experimentation. Gurudev Rabindera Nath Tagore has maintained that, "In our social system we need such teachers who can initiate change in our life and mobilize our mindset and who can empower us to remove obstacles from life".
The college has sufficient infrastructure - comprising of 8-10 classes, 2 multipurpose halls, Computer Lab, well equipped library, Psychological Lab, Audio Visual Aids room, Language Lab etc. The college has Hostel facility for girls - which can accommodate 120 girl students having well ventilated rooms along with all the requisite facilities. It has adequate electricity backup as well as good drinking water facility. College has transport facilities of its own.
The differentials of Sai Shyam Educational Society besides providing academic instructions - also give due importance to non academic areas as well. Debates, cultural events, games, workshops and other adhered community programmes form an integral part of educational system.
