ABOUT PRAMOTH NATH MEMORIAL TRUST

Teacher education must become more sensitive to the emerging demands from the school system. For this it must prepare the teachers for the roles of being an:

  1. Encouraging, supportive and human facilitator in teaching-learning situation to enable learners (students) to discover their talents.
  2. Active member of a group of persons who makes a conscious effort for curricular renewal so that it is relevant to changing social needs and the personal need of learners. So the teachers need to be prepared to

    1. Care for children and should love to be with them.
    2. Understand children within social, cultural and political contexts.
    3. Be receptive and be constantly learning.
    4. View learning as a search for meaning out of personal experience and knowledge generation as a continuously evolving process of reflective learning.
    5. View knowledge not as an external reality embedded in textbooks but as constructed in the shared contexts of teaching-leaning and personal experience.
    6. Our responsibility towards society and work to build a better world.
    7. Analyse the curriculum framework, policy implication and texts.

In such an educational scenario, Pramoth Nath Memorial Trust, registered under West Bengal Trust  Act.  took the venture to establish a D.EL.ED. college on self-financing basis at Burnpur, PS- Hirapur, Dist-Burdwan with the help and active co-operation of some education-loving persons of the area. Common people too appreciated this endeavor and come forward with all kinds of assistance. Proposal for setting up a D.EL.ED. College at Burnpur was placed before the State Government and the WEST BENGAL BOARD OF PRIMARY EDUCATION. In condensation of the justification of the proposal the State Government of West Bengal issued N.O.C.   THE WEST BENGAL BOARD OF PRIMARY EDUCATION accorded affiliation to this D.EL.ED  College.
