Director's Message

Welcome to the online home of the Inter University Centre for Teacher Education (IUCTE), Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi. IUCTE, an autonomous Institution of University Grants Commission (UGC), has a national mandate to contribute to capacity building in the field of Teacher Education. The entire educational spectrum from school education to higher education including technical and professional education is under the ambit of IUCTE. It gives me immense pleasure to nurture and grow IUCTE as its founding Director since December 2016. A great deal of responsibility lies with IUCTE to work with different stakeholders in the educational system to improve the quality of teachers and teacher education programs both during pre-service and in-service stages. IUCTE looks forward to form strategic partnerships and collaborate with various academic bodies to fulfil its vision of nurturing a sustainable ecosystem for capacity building in the field of teacher education.

We urge you to explore our website to learn more about our organization and activities. Feel free to reach out to us to discuss any ideas and suggestions you may have in the field of teacher education and enhance the quality of learning experiences. We look forward to your involvement to take IUCTE to greater heights.  Our team is committed to take a leadership role through evidence based programs and services and is gearing up to provide thought leadership in various aspects of teacher education including educational policy matters. Once again, I welcome you to join us in IUCTE’s exciting journey ahead.
