Message from the Chairman

Indian Centre for Advancement of Research and Education (ICARE), Haldia has established Vidyasagar Primary Teachers’ Training Institute with the recognition of National Council for Teacher Education and has been duly affiliated to West Bengal Board of Primary Education to conduct D.El.Ed. course. It is indeed, a significant achievement for ICARE in its relentless and dedicated efforts to make this region a notable centre of education so that candidates aspiring to pursue different types of career oriented courses need not have to face the compulsion of going to far away places.

The elementary education marks the beginning of the most important stage of formal education of the child. I hope that this institute through its Diploma in Elementary Teacher Education (D.El.Ed) programme will provide properly trained & ideal teachers to take care of these children.

This institute at Haldia will achieve the twin objectives – i) to produce new generation teachers so that the primary level students get methodical teaching from properly trained teachers and ii) to provide opportunity to the candidates of this region to pursue their career in teaching.

This institution of ICARE will also take care to meet the growing requirements of well trained primary teachers to keep pace with the West Bengal Govt’s thrust for providing primary education for all children. A long felt need of the area is fulfilled with the setting up of this institute.
I am confident that the highly qualified faculty members of the institute shall not keep any stone un-turned to achieve the highest quality performance of the students. I am sure that the dedicated efforts with modern infrastructural facilities and support derived from the experience of ICARE will nurture the students to achieve their goals.

Contribution of ICARE for the phenomenal growth of educational facilities in this region is, indeed, highly significant. And I am sure that with the good-will and active support from all sections of the society, the activities of ICARE in the field of Education is bound to progress further for the overall development of Purba Medinipur district.
