Inculcation of values and concern for the society are developed among the students through the unique Community Outreach Programmes. Apart from the regular B. Ed. Advanced programme, numerous need-based in-service courses and workshops are organized on and off the campus. M.

During its journey of the past four years, the college has already made its presence felt through its publications, training programmes and contribution in the field of technology. Affiliated to Sardar Patel University the college is recognized by the NCTE. With well-furnished classrooms and facilities like computer laboratory, geography laboratory, mathematics science laboratory, communication laboratory, psychology laboratory equipment for sports and music etc., the institution, which has won four national and three state-level awards for integration of technology in classroom teaching, is poised to be a leading college of education.
