Asom Sikshak Prasikshan Mahabidyalaya - ASPM
Asom Sikshak Prasikshan Mahabidyalaya is one of the premier institutions of teachers' education in Guwahati, Assam (India). It is affiliated to Gauhati University, and recognised by National Council for Teachers Education (NCTE) with a current intake capacity of 100. The history of Education is full of epoch making events. Way back in the early 1990's it was discussed in common educational parlance about the need of a B.Ed. College in the Western Guwahati region. The view was to enhance the professional competence of teachers in general and to get entry into teaching profession in the schools under the care of the Central Govt. in particular. Also among the issues discussed was to refrain from charging exorbitant fees from the pupils as was done by a large number of privately managed institutions at that time so that needy and deserving students could be benefited. The issues were taken up under the leadership of Dr. Prabin Chandra Sarma who discussed with the educated class of the people of Pandu, Maligaon and Jalukbari Area particularly the Heads of the educational institutions and the teachers of High Schools, Higher Secondary Schools and Colleges. Being encouraged by the teachers and the leading citizens of the area, a general meeting was convened on 5th of June 1992 in the Railway Higher Secondary School, Maligaon to which all the Heads of the educational institutions and the teachers ranging from Bharalumukh to Jalukbari area were invited. The meeting was presided over by Sri Rajen Dutta, veteran social worker and was largely attended. After due deliberations it was decided that a B.Ed. College named Asom Sikshak Prasikshan Mahabidyalaya (A.S.P.M.) be started from the academic session 1992-93 and all necessary steps be taken to materialize the B.Ed. College.
