ST. JOSEPH TEACHER TRAINING INSTITUTE
Women and Child Development Society (WCDS) has been running St. Joseph Teacher training Institute. It is two year duration Diploma in Teacher Education (D.T.Ed.) course for plus two passed students. The Government of Tamilnadu and the National Council for Teacher Education, Government of India have given approval to conduct the course. The sanction is accorded to the Institute to admit 100 girl students every year. This college is meant for girl students only. WCDS had opted to conduct classes only for girls keeping in mind the development of women in the future.
The Institute has been admitting poor students from the local and nearby villages with scholarships and some very poor students are admitted with fee concession. Some students are paying fees on instalments because their parents are very poor and daily coolie workers. Some students are very eager to study but at the same time they are not able to pay fees due to very poor income and poverty. The college admits those students without fees.
Under such circumstances the Institute has been managing the expenses of salary for teaching, non teaching staff, administrative staff members, other staff members, etc. with very limited income by way of fees from some affordable students. With the very limited income from the students the Institute is unable to undertake developmental activities for the Institute. There is a need for additional building for class rooms, laboratory, library, staff rooms, dinning halls for the students and staff, recreation, indoor sports halls, etc.View Website
