D.EL.ED

Formerly known as Elementary Teacher Training Course (ETTC) is a two-year compact capsule designed to train a teacher with the basic skills of classroom teaching. The teacher is sensitised to various psychological principles underlying the growth and development of the children falling in the age group 5 -13. The training exposes a teacher to childhood education and integrated teaching. There are certain pre-requisites that make a teacher eligible for the diploma such as a proper hold in the first and second language, mathematics, natural and social sciences. S/he must be able to develop skills in identifying, selecting and organizing learning experiences to teach the afore mentioned subjects in situations formal and non-formal. A teacher must also possess sufficient theoretical Diploma in Elementary Education (D.EL.ED.) and practical knowledge of health, physical and recreational activities, work education, art and music. Home provides the first school to a child in his learning process. Our diploma course effectively underlines the importance of home in the personality development of the child. It enables a teacher-trainee to understand the role of home, peer groups and involvement of community in shaping the personality of the child. The sole objective of the diploma revolves around empowering a teacher to help a child achieve an allround personality development. It also inculcates a sense of value commitment by generating capacities for greater motivation and aspiration.
