The college has a unique distinction of being run by a society comprising of eminent educationists and distinguished teacher educators who can not be belittled for their endurance and skill and for whom the college is a dream project.

The College of Education since its establishment in the year 2002 has been continuously striving to make use of procedures designed to equip prospective teachers with the knowledge, skills and attitudes that they require to perform their tasks effectively in the classroom, schools and wider community.

The college is NAAC re-accredited and ISO certified. It provides all basic infrastructural facilities to the pupil teachers in the shape of airy and well equipped classrooms, libraries, laboratories, multipurpose hall and playground etc.

As 21st century is characterised with emergence of knowledge based society wherein Information and Communication technology plays a pivotal role. In education ICT is considered to improve students learning, as it can motivate and sustain students interest and reinforce learning, offer self- paced practice and create high interest learning environment. In order to ensure such a learning atmosphere, the college provides LCD projectors, smart class facilities, Over Head Projectors and Computers with internet facilities for the trainees, so that they are able to deliver lesson in various teaching subjects through such classes .The provision of all such facilities have enabled the college to develop a quality teaching learning environment. I would like to thank respected sh. C. L. Tickoo the chairman of the institution and the members of the management for the same.

The Quality Assurance Cell which is functional in the college, through its multifarious activities tries to develop discipline, social sensitiveness and co-operation among the students. It organises cultural programmes, debates, seminars, quiz, women related programmes, rallies on social issues and community development programmes. Extension Lectures are also organised from time to time for professional growth of teachers educators and pupil teachers. The population Club, Adult Education Club, NSS Wing, Chinar Environmental Club, and Guidance and Counselling Cell is also engaged in organising state and national level programmes for the pupil teachers during the entire session.

The college has had an opportunity to organize National level and State level seminars sponsored by NAAC, ICSSR New Delhi and ICSSR Chandigarh.

The college has an experimental school which enables the pupil teachers to conduct internship activities during the B.Ed. program.

I am sure that students of this session will also benefit by all such programmes conducted by the college for two year B.Ed. Course. I would like, here to emphasise that the students should remain regular and punctual during the session, which is only key to their successful completion of the course. I welcome new comers to this institution and wish them all the best.
