I am very proud to be the Principal of St.Xavier College of Education.Discipline is the foundation of our college. The college edifice rests on this. Education then comes in handy; Education is imparted here with a teacher-pupil ratio of 1:8. Students are able to record their needs and ideas and also find remedies for them. The selfless teachers guide the students properly. They, in turn, chisel their dream of a bright future with a different perspective. “Teaching is not a daily job; It is life’s gift”.
The Professors are trained in improving their educational skill, teaching ability and their self-initiative. Just teaching the subjects and making the students by heart the matter and get through the examinations is not our assignment. Our goal is to shape them into efficient teachers. Whatever be the program or event either by the students or by the college management, that should not exceed a time limit of 1 hour. This is an unwritten law in our campus.
The B.Ed Degree course is a two-year teacher training program and the trainees are trained to teach in High and Higher Secondary Schools. The trainees are given a good opportunity to observe and practise teaching in various schools. All-round personality development is also incorporated into the course curriculum with socially useful productive work, Arts and Crafts, citizenship camps, field trip, etc.
