    MISSION

    The main objective of the department is to equip teachers with the skills required to teach young children. Emphasis is given to "learning by doing" - activity based learning, development of creative skills, self-development and inculcation of moral and spiritual values. A high standard of work and competence is expected of both the staff and the trainees, who are encouraged to develop a sense of responsibility and an understanding of Children.

    RECOGNITION

    The Trained Teacher’s Certificate (T.T.C.) is a two year undergraduate course conducted by the Teacher’s Training Department of Loreto House. Teachers graduating from this course are qualified to teach in English medium primary schools. The department was established in 1955 at the request of the Government of West Bengal and the INTERSTATE BOARD for ANGLO – INDIAN EDUCATION. In 2003-2004, the department was recognized by the NCTE – National Council for Teacher Education.

    COURSES

    The two year course prepares teachers in all professional subjects, viz. Educational Psychology, Principles of Education and School Organization, Methods of Teaching Subjects at the Primary level such as Value Education, English, Mathematics, History, Geography and General Science. Instruction is also given in Practical Subjects such as Art and Craft, Physical Education, Speech Training and preparation of Teaching Aids. Each trainee is required to undergo practical training experience twice a year for a period of a month each term.
    Trainees are allotted Nursery and Kindergarten classes for the first year and a primary class in the second year of training. Their final teaching practice is an externally examined session in a class of their preference. Evaluation is based on both internal and external examinations in practical and theoretical papers. Trainees are also assessed on work/projects done regularly throughout the two years. Micro lessons are conducted where the trainee gets the opportunity to practice and demonstrate skills to be used in the classroom.
    The trainee teacher practices computer skills and attends an Educational Technology Programmes (ICT ) designed to equip the teacher with first hand experience in using technology in the classroom. Excursions are organized on an ongoing basis. Students are encouraged to visit places of interest in and around the city. This is to enable them to use these resources to make learning fun and develop in children an interest in their environment. Projects and project journals are submitted regularly on topics such as Child Study, History, Geography and Science, as well as a collection of poems, rhymes and stories.
