Choosing where to pursue your B.Ed education is a major decision and I believe that Viharilal College of Education will be a choice you will not regret, especially if you are ambitious and determined to succeed. More....


Viharilal College of Education, a self-financed B.Ed. College under the University of Calcutta, began its journey from the session 2009-2010. With a great deal of hard work put in by some teachers of the Department of Home Science, Calcutta University, the college initiated the process of starting the B.Ed. Course, introducing Home Science as one of the method Subjects. This being the first of its kind in West Bengal, it is a great venture on the part of the initiators. The already existing course of Diploma in Home Science lost its recognition after the National Council of Teacher Education (NCTE) came into being. Hence the initiators felt the need and urgency of reintroducing the Teacher Education Course for the benefit of the students of Home Science in particular; as these students could not undergo this pre-service and in-service training due to lack of Home Science method subject in the B.Ed. as per the NCTE regulation.

Viharilal College of Education is thus immensely indebted to the initiators of the Course, the respected authorities of Calcutta University, the Senior Secretary, Faculty of Education, the Science Secretary, the teachers and staff of the Home Science Department, the staff of the College Street Campus of the University, the Department of Education, Calcutta University, parents and guardians, the community and certain enthusiastic people connected to the Department of Home Science. We acknowledge the immense contribution of those who were indispensable in opening of the college. There are several people who may not have been mentioned here without whose help the college would not have been opened. We convey our heartiest thanks to them.
