West Guwahati College of Education - WGCE guwahati - WGCE

In response to the demand of Pandu-Maligaon, Jalukbari, Dharapur, Tetelia, Baragaon, Gotanagar and entire western part of the city this West Guwahati College of Education, in 1992 was established with the relentless efforts of a few devoted academicians. Accordingly, a Sponsoring Body headed by Dr. M. Barthakur, M.A., B.Sc.(Hons), Ph.D., Retd. Professor of Gauhati University and Sri Sreemanta Sarker, M.A., B.Ed., the Principal of Bidyamandir H.S. School as Secretary was formed on 1St April,1992 to initiate the move for establishing a College of Education i.e., B.Ed. College at Pandu, with permission from Gauhati University. The Sponsoring Body was later on expanded by co-opting other members having selfless love for education and wide experience in socio-administrative activities. Institution of Krishna Kanta Handique State Open University (KKHSOU) Study Centre came into force due to the tireless effort carried out by Prof. Dr.Minadhar Barthakur, President, WGCE, , WGCE and Mrs Gitanjali Choudhury , Principal, WGCE. In the recent years the demand for trained teachers has considerably increased. Due to lack of trained teachers, the State Government deputes teachers for in-service training to limited number of B.T. or B.Ed. degree compulsory for recruitment of teachers. Similarly the state government also prefers trained teachers for appointment in the schools and very likely it will make it statutory requirement for a qualified teacher. Gauhati University abolished the B.T. Department and the existing teachers training colleges failed to meet the demand of ever-growing schools in the nook and corner of the state. As a result, there was a pressing need for a teachers training college in the western part of the city of Guwahati. In the year 2008, West Guwahati College of Education has instituted KKHSOU Stuy Centre which caters to the need of the educationally deprived individuals from various walks of life introducing BPP and BA courses.
