About Our College:

The Marathi Teachers Training College

The Samiti was in constant need of trained teachers to teach more systematically and efficiently. The absence of Marathi medium-training college in this part made the Samiti more concerned about the need of Teachers Training College. The untrained teachers had to go to Pune for the training which weighed on their financial position. With the help of Shri.S.R.Tawade, then Education Inspector and Administrative Officer, Shamrao Bidi Education Adviser to then Bombay State, the Society decided to start a Marathi training College. After obtaining permission to start the same, the training college was formally inaugurated by the Director of Education Mr.S.M.Moose on June 17, 1942. This was the only co-educating institution in the entire Bombay State. In the last 6 decades the college has trained more than ten thousand students to be good teachers and they, in return have dedicated themselves to train and shape the minds of the younger generation in Maharashtra, Karnataka and Goa States of India. The Society encouraged the teachers to qualify themselves with higher education and posses University degree. Hundreds of teachers have availed of this opportunity.
