JSS Teacher Training Institutes
Among several initiatives taken by JSSMVP, JSS Teacher Training Institute is one of them. Students will understand the subject matter in a better way if we teach them in an efficient manner. Considering the change in educational policy and environment, JSSMVP realized the need for good teachers and decided to produce good teachers. As a result, teacher training institutes were established, and teaching education was made accessible even to the rural students as well.
During 2003-04, BRDM Institution, Bengaluru, merged with JSS Mahavidyapeetha. One High School and one Institute of Education run by BRDM institution at Sakaleshpur, Hassan, came under the fold of JSSMVP. This institution had an intake of 100 students. During 2005-06, four new Institutes of Education were established, and at present, five Institutes are functioning.
During the year 2010-11, the strength of JSS B.Ed and JSS D.Ed colleges was 401(158 boys and 243 girls). There were 29 teachers and 22 non-teaching staff in these colleges.
In addition to this, JSSMVP has established a Nursery School Teachers’ Training Institute in Mysuru and a Teacher Training Institute in Bengaluru to train teachers to work with differently-abled children.
JSS Teacher Training Institutes aim at building teacher competencies by providing them with the necessary training to upgrade their knowledge and develop the required proficiency.
