Primary Teachers Training Certificate Course
The principal objective of Vallabh Vidyalaya has been to render rural service and to achieve total development of the students of the backward communities.The primary teachers could be considerd to be providers of rural services for all time, and to provide them proper training for teaching as well as rural service, a basic teachers’ training college was started.
After independence, a great change was occuring in the field of education. The Government started to introduce basic education in the primary schools and the syllabus of the primary schools was duly modified introducing udyog as a subject in that syllabus.This change necessitated to train the primary teachers and educational inspectors of different categories.
The Government selected Vallabh Vidyalaya as a centre of such training in Gujarat Training classes for the primary teachers and inspectors were started at Vallabh Vidyalaya. In those classes the trainees were to be given training in spinning and weaving. Moreover, they had to be trained to discard all sorts of discriminatory practices, to wash their clothes and dishes themselves, to create new relationship of equality and fraternity. Keeping this in view, no servant or cook was employed in their service whatsoever. In the beginning this type of rigorous schedule pricked many of the trainees. Some of them were inclined to go away leaving the class. But Shri Shivabhai’s goodwill and loving treatment ultimately removed all their misgivings and they could not leave. The duration of the training was three months, at the end of which a new batch joined. In this way total 3,463 teachers and inspectors received training in the Vidyalaya.
In 1952, while unveiling Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel’s statue in the Vidyalaya, Shri Morarjibhai Desai had announced that a basic teachers’ training college ashould be started in Vallabh Vidyalaya at proper time. Accordingly the college was started in 1965.
