For more than four decades the State College of Teacher Education, Kohima has stoically withstood the test of time. The demands of the changes brought about in education field/system time and again, at the school level and thereby in teacher education have been tough. But, we have embraced such changes and adapted to the times with ease…the battle was not as much as winning but conquering the arena of the mind. The College always has and continues to believe to ‘go against the flow’ and this is the secret of its survival.
The difference between this institution and others lie in our belief that change can be brought about by what others observe in and about us, touching the core aspiration of a teacher; not numbers or grades!
This college is among the first three B.Ed. institutions in the North-Eastern region to be given recognition by NCTE(ERC) in 1998.
