Principal's message

Warm Greetings from Mount Carmel College of Teacher Education for Women! Mount Carmel College of Teacher Education for Women is one of the pioneer institutions in the field of Teacher Education in the State of Kerala. It was the dream and vision of Mother Teresa of St. Rose of Lima, the foundress of the CSST Congregation, to bring forth a teacher training institution focussing on the wholesome empowerment of women - their academic excellence, spiritual well-being, dignity of conduct, moral consciousness and the grace of the feminine mystique.

Our institution was established in 1953, as the first Aided Training College for Women in Kerala. Though its inception was under the University of Kerala, it was later affiliated to Mahatma Gandhi University, Kottayam. Presently, our institution is offering two batches of B.Ed students representing the Two - Year Aided B.Ed. Programme. In addition to this, our institution hosts two batches of M.Ed. students who are part of the Two - Year Unaided M.Ed. Programme. Our institution has been undergoing consistent metamorphosis, following its efforts to grow into a premier academic institution. A balanced focus on curricular, co-curricular and extension activities has been imparted by the institution, so as to cater to the innate abilities and diverse cultural contexts of the student teachers.

With immense pride, we would like to appreciate the dedicated service and scholarly pursuits of our highly competent team of faculty members who are responsible in moulding and energizing our students to become confident young women teachers, ready to face the challenges of society. Moreover the highly motivated and committed non-teaching staff members are also working in communion with the needs and aspirations of our institution. With profound respect and gratitude, we acknowledge the support of the stakeholders of our college, the Board of Management of the CSST congregation, non-governmental agencies, faculty, non-teaching staff members, parents, alumnae, former staff members, students and all other well-wishers, who have supported us in our endeavors to uphold the tradition and values of our institution: the quest for excellence, need for quality education, the empowerment of the marginalized women and children in society and the promotion of a civilization of love and humaneness.

Our alma mater warmly welcomes with utmost pride and great expectation, each qualified young woman, who would like to seek enrolment for our educational programmes. We assure all, that a myriad of opportunities - academic, co-curricular and extra-curricular - will be offered to everyone who seek to showcase their own talents and capabilities.May Divine Grace shower blessings on all our endeavours, along with the favourable intercession of the Foundress Mother Teresa of St. Rose of Lima ……...

Best wishes and thank one and all!
