Introduction of Teachers' Training College:
 

The education commission recommended the introduction of " a sound programme of professional education of teachers". As a teacher tries to teach in the way in which he himself was taught by his favourite teachers, this tends to perpetuate the traditional methods of teaching.

 

Teachers education refers the whole range of activities that constitute preparation for the improvement of members of the teaching profession. It includes pre-service education for those who have not teaching experience and in service education for those who are actually engaged in teaching. The evaluation of quantitative and qualitative standards for the profession is reflected in the use of the term "TEACHER EDUCATION" rather than the older "TEACHER TRAINING".

 

Training is necessary for efficient work in a particular job. If a person is trained before employing him in a job this is called pre training. Without pre-training it is risky to employ a person in a job he does not have any knowledge about it. When he fails in a job he develops a negative attitude towards it and thinks that he is not competent for it.

 

Training is essential for every teacher. Trained teachers can do much more than untrained teachers. Many specific skills have been identified which are to be developed in teacher trainees. Technical knowledge and skill can be developed in the teacher trainees. Technical knowledge and skill can be developed in the teacher through the training. Training is necessary for all teachers.Need for training for primary and secondary has been emphasized by many commissions and committees but few people realize the need for training the college teachers. Now a days, a feeling is growing up among top educationists that there should be need for training of college teachers also.Training colleges or colleges of education, the minimum qualification for entrance is graduation. The duration of the course is one year. Degrees awarded are B.T. or B.ED. These colleges provide teachers for secondary and senior secondary schools.

Generous people of the entire locality have realized the urgent necessity of the college and have welcomed it. But admission of local students is not encouraging. B.ED. is a professional training which is felt most necessary for the teachers and the taught specially in secondary level.
