The College of Teacher Education (PGT), also known by its former nomenclature of PGT – Post Graduate Training (College) is located in the heart of Shillong. The seed of this Teacher Training College at Shillong was sown during the Centenary year of Swami Vivekananda (1963), to commemorate the centenary of the great teacher in a befitting manner. The College is one of the first teacher education institutions in Shillong, the then capital of undivided Assam, catering specifically to teacher training in the State. It came into existence on 19th March, 1964. The Institution owes much of its existence to the Jail Road Boys’ High School, which generously offered the use of its premises and nurtured it for over a decade till it acquired its own premises. Shri S. C. Rajkhowa, the then DPI, Govt. of Assam, allowed the Post Graduate Training College special dispensation to commence functioning with part-time staff including the Principal as an interim arrangement. In 1986, the Government of Meghalaya brought the College under the purview of the Deficit grant-in-aid system. The College has since been conferred recognition by the National Council of Teacher Education (NCTE) under Section 14 of NCTE Act F. No. 2799(12) dated 11.02.1997

A significant position is accorded to the Conference Room in the Institution Plan in recent times. Though its existence dates more than a decade and a half, yet its utility is intensely felt in the present time when pedagogical ideas, concepts, practices and other issues are on a radar for testing the validity, reliability and practicability of the same. It is in the Conference Room that innovative thoughts and ideas evolved which are put on board as a practice in future. The College Auditorium, rectangular in shape has the capacity to accommodate 300 approx. persons and is just right for the existing strength of Managing Committee members, teaching faculty and non-faculty members and students, and an additional 150 seats for invitees and guests including past pupils (Alumni). The College Auditorium is frequently used for a variety of programmes. Besides Socio-cultural and Literary programmes, other programmes like World Environment Day.
