"Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world." - Neleon Mandela
Established in 1966, DAV College of Education has been a progressive institution devoted to facilitating a state of the art training and education for the teachers of tomorrow. With a warm heart and utmost humility, / welcome all the aspiring teachers who would be learning and growing with us for the upcoming session while taking the responsibility to communicate the amendments made to the curriculum in accordance with the NEP-2020 guidelines, which will be adopted in the future. The admission to the pre-service teacher preparation programmes shall be done through a single nationwide entrance examination to be conducted by the national testing agency. By 2025, only multi-disciplinary and integrated teacher education programmes shall be in force. The 4-year integrated B.Ed. offered by such multi disciplinary HEls will, by 2030, become the minimal degree qualification for school teachers. The 4-year integrated B.Ed. will be a dual-major Bachelor's degree, in Education as well as a specialized subject (such as a language, or history, music, mathematics, computer science, chemistry, economics, etc.) All BEd. programmes will also emphasize the practice of fundamental duties in Article 51-A of the Indian constitution along with other constitutional provisions while teaching any subject or performing any activity. It will also appropriately integrate environmental awareness and sensitivity towards its conservation and sustainable development, so that environment education becomes an integral part of school curricula.
Teachers must be grounded in Indian values, languages, knowledge, ethos, and traditions, while also being well versed in the latest advances in education and pedagogy. This is exactly what we aim for our students here at the institution. My heart swells with pride and wonder as I receive and share the accolades and honors our students have always brought, by participating in all range of curricular and extra mural activities. I feel proud to announce the overall trophy of the zonal youth festival 2018, our students were adorned with, for their incredible talent and diligence throughout the session.
With this, I invite you to join hands on this journey of enormous potential and growth with the resolve to provide educators and administrators with the resources they need, to educate the whole person, and commit to providing all young people with knowledge, skills, confidence, empathy, and compassion, to make the highest and best investment in our shared national and global future.
