Universities & Colleges In Himachal Pradesh

Himachal Pradesh Board of School Education is agency of Government of Himachal Pradesh entrusted with the responsibilities of prescribing courses of instructions and text books and conducting examinations for secondary school students in Himachal Pradesh. It was set up in 1969 and has its head quarters in Dharamshala. At present more than 8000 schools are affiliated with the Board. The Board sets up 1650 examination centres for more than 500,000 examinees every year.

Government College of Teacher Education Dharamshala

Government College of Teacher Education Dharamshala was founded in October 1956 to meet the growing demand of trained teachers for middle and secondary schools. It was affiliated with the Punjab University Chandigarh, but after the reorganization of states in India and the creation of Himachal Pradesh, the College was affiliated with Himachal Pradesh University (HPU) Shimla, a co-educational institution catering to the needs of pre-service teacher-trainees only.
In 1962 National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) New Delhi established an extension centre at the Government College, to cater to the growing needs of in-service teachers in the district of Chamba. The centre grew to cater for the whole of Kangra (which included present-day Una and Hamirpur districts). This department circulated information to in-service teachers in the fields of curriculum, methodology, evaluation and other similar fields in education, to continue their professional growth.
In 1994, the Ministry of Human Resource Development in New Delhi enhanced the "College of Education" to the "State College of Teacher Education". The college has blossomed into a "Centre of Excellence" in teacher training programs for pre-service as well as in-service teaching. It is the only government institution in Himachal Pradesh which supplies trained teachers to all of Himachal Pradesh, and has contributed significantly towards meeting the manpower requirement of secondary schools.
