SCERT (WB) has taken initiative to develop infrastructure of SCERT (WB) , DIETs and PTTIs through PWD (Civil and Electrical). In the last three financial years 2019-20, 2020-2021 and 2021-22 SCERT has received an sufficient amount for various repairing works, AMC of electrical maintenance, Biometric attendance system and various research works of SCERT.

In West Bengal, after the implementation of the D.El.Ed course the DIETS have been effectively functional in their PSTE branches since 2014 after the implementation of the two years’ D.El.Ed. course revised as per recommendation of the NCTE. Meanwhile duly qualified faculty members  have been appointed in all the DIETS which are also well furnished with all infrastructural facilities including ICT labs enabled with Wi-Fi.

Though different training programmes have been organized for improvement of the  quality of the academic activities of the DIET, yet no remarkable improvement have been perceived in this regard and the academic functioning have been taken place in the DIETs in the tune of the conventional manner and not as per recommendation of the NCFTE-09 and of NCTE. Needless to mention that there is no basic difference with the DIETs with other TTIs as per the academic discourse is concerned especially in the field of the School Internship programmes.

The project EBP (Encouraging Best Practice) has been initiated by the SCERT (WB) with an aim  to quality improvement of DIETs strictly as per framework & spirit of the NCFTE & review of  the JRM of Teacher Education with the following objectives :

  • To sensitize the staff members about the spirit of the reformation of teacher education programme as per recommendation of the NCFTE – 2009.
  • Capacity development of academic faculty members:-
  1. For practicing ‘School Internship Programmes’ for both the 1st& 2nd year students in the light of reformation by providing space of innovation & creativity.
  2. To build up an institution basis ‘Assessment Framework’ for awarding internal marks of theory papers & internship activities in an unbiased way.
  • For documentation of all activity for creating a repository of the institute.
  1. Submission of the tasks, with feedback about all stages i.e. plan – challenges faced – strategies taken -achievement – failure.
  2. For empowering & encouraging them to participate in the national seminars by publishing their work.

SCERT has organized a pilot study in DIET, Burdwan on September, 2021 and conducted three   day sensitizing workshop in DIET, Birbhum for South Bengal DIETs with all faculty members   including the technicians for the period from 12th Sept. 2021 to 14th Sept. 2021.

As a measure to contain the spread of the novel corona virus, educational institution has been shut            down temporarily. There is no certainty when they will reopen. As the day pass by with no       immediate solution to stop the outbreak of COVID-19, the continuity of learning is endangered. It         also has a far reaching economic and societal consequence. The structure of learning including            teaching and assessment methodologies was the first to be affected by these closures. Needless to   say, the pandemic has transformed the centuries-old, chalk-talk teaching model to one driven by            technology. This disruption in the delivery of education is pushing the institutional authorities to             figure out how to ensure e-learning solutions and how to tackle the digital divide.


The students enrolled in the professional course like D. El. Ed are at a fix. These students are the future teachers with a great mission of building nation. Apart from class lectures and theories,    they do need hand-holding support and they do learn to put the acquired knowledge into practice      under the supervision of the faculty members of the DIETs.


For them immediate measures are essential to ensure continuity of learning and completion of the             curriculum. To ensure accessibility of learning to the students open source digital learning           solutions can be adopted. It is important to reconsider the current delivery and pedagogical       methods in professional education by integrating classroom learning with e-learning modes. For          this, if is also important to ensure quality benchmark for online learning.


In this time of crisis, a well-rounded and effective educational practice is what is needed for the   capacity-building of young minds. It will develop skills that will drive their employability.


In this regard, SCERT(WB) has taken initiative to start classes for D. El, Ed. Students through     online platform and accordingly has decided for planning and execution of a project entitled as   “Professional Development of the DIET Faculties together with online Classes for Regular          D. El. Ed. Students” with the following objectives :
