The Dergaon Basic Training Centre would like to draw the attention of States & Central Ministers through its performance since 1962.
Being a teacher education institution, Basic Training Centre, Dergaon, aim to empower student teacher to grow as individuals with strong open discerning methods with an international perspective, preparing them to make a mark in the global village-the world come to be today.
The practical experience of learning enables our student teachers to leave our institute daily with either something in their hand, something in their mind, and something in their heart. Our staff fruitfully employs two diverse strategies; which are of love and logic to foster a positive learning environment for all of our student teachers. A teacher’s responsibility does not end with just teaching a child, but they also should praise, encourage, mentor, guide, influence, inspire, and instruct the child so that they can love learning.
I have joined as a Teacher Educator of Arts at Dergaon BTC in 2015 and have taken the charge of Principal from December/2022. I think the trainees coming from nook and corner of Assam have attained their professional expertise as well as their individual proficiency.
I believe that Dergaon BTC will be able to supplement the educational needs of 21st Century with its flourishing information and educational Technology in the days to come, irrespective of all odds.
