Sikkim to have B Ed college

Posted by Ramesh Khati on August 4, 2009

GANGTOK, 3 AUG.: To improve the quality of teaching in Sikkim, the state human development department (HRDD) has decided to set up a B Ed college at Soreng in the West district. The state government had constructed the complex for a science college.
Speaking on the matter, the joint director, higher education, HRDD Mr KN Subudhi said that the institute would train teachers, which would subsequently improve the quality of education in the state. Earlier the HRDD was compelled to recruit untrained teachers due to the lack of a government B Ed college in the state. Currently two private B Ed colleges are operational in the state. The move is being viewed as a positive one of the state government to make teachers’ education more accessible and affordable.
It is also informed that the college would be affiliated to the Sikkim Central University and duly recognized by the National Council of Teachers’ Education (NCTE). Mr. Subudhi further informed that NCTE officials would soon verify the infrastructure and manpower of the upcoming college and then allot recognition. The college would have an annual intake of 100 students (50 in each batch) and seats would be reserved for in-service teachers without B. Ed degree.
Last week, the state cabinet had resolved to set up B Ed and teachers’ training colleges to improve teaching in the state.
Following this, the cabinet made it essential for teachers to have either teachers’ training or B. Ed for recruitment in government schools in the state.
