district level. Ensuring that no transmission loss occurs through the cascade mode.

2.Conducting regular pre-service training (2 yrs’ D.El.Ed. course as prescribed by WBBPE). Thus trainee – teachers come to know how to facilitate their students scholastically as well as co-scholastically. Gradually through acquisition of various sorts of propositional and procedural knowledge and experiences they know how to scaffold students to grow up as Human resources of the country. Trainee –teachers learn how to develop students’ sensory perceptions, psychomotor skills, socio-emotional aspects, cognitive capacities, creative-productive abilities.

3.Arranging and conducting In-service trainings on contents and methods of the syllabi
and other contemporary and relevant topics and issues. Follow-up of such programmes are utmost essential for teachers’ required capacity building.

up their knowledge, understanding and skills.

Supervision in Schools team. Thus providing continuous, positive and constructive scaffoldings to school’s regarding specifically academic issues.

Our Vision

DIET, Howrah is a nodal Institute conferring elementary level teachers’ training in Howrah
district. In pursuance of holistic development of child undoubtedly teachers’ training is means
and our view in this regard fully conforms with that of National Education Policy 2020 and
National Curriculum Framework 2023.
Our Vision is that the teacher would act as a facilitator in a student-centric, activity –based, joyful, trauma-free class. Students would be able to construct / logically guess or anticipate/ solve / sort out the Zone of Proximal Development with the help of previous knowledge and experiences, contexts. This is Self- learning and hence the class is student-centric class.
According to Constructivist approach we orient our trainees to enable them to build up classes
where there would be maximum learning and minimum teaching.
Our trainees would be able to devise age-appropriate, level –appropriate tasks and LTMs
(mostly with local components, contexts, ideas resources, flavours) for the students and the
tasks would consist a huge amount of previous knowledge and experiences with a little bit of
unknown to be discovered.
So, in our Vision it is necessary to build up discovery-based class following Heuristic approach. Learning –teaching is to be a continuous, contextualised process and process is no less important than product. We emphasise upon Group activities, Peer-learning, Peer-tutoring as Brain-storming and Mind-mapping would be easier and joyful in this way.
Our trainee –teachers would be able to create joyful and positive ambience in the class.
Emphasis would be upon acquisition, not rote learning anyway.


Principal Message

Howrah is one of the small districts of West Bengal and it is spread over an area of 1467 sq kms. Headquarters of this district is Howrah, the second largest city of West Bengal and twin of Kolkata. Howrah has a rich history that dates back to more than 500 years. The district is at present comprised of 14 Blocks and 2 Municipal areas.
District Institute of Education & Training, Howrah is a nodal Institute to cater to necessities of Elementary Education of the district. Though the Institute is specifically focussed as well as functional and operational in the area of Pre-service training of would be Elementary teachers yet throughout the year several In-service trainings for teachers of a few days’ duration, Surveys, Studies/ Research Projects, School visits, relevant Analysis, Report preparation etc go on. Most of the times we work in these educational activities as a district level Institute on behalf of the National
Level / State Level stakeholders/ Organizations.
Undoubtedly, we are always inspired by competent authorities (e.g-SCERT,WB) to venture to look into the educational scenario of our district on our own and to take up activities accordingly. We feel that the efforts would be much relevant as NEP-2020 also emphasises upon devising tasks and LTMs based on basically local components, contents, ideas,
resources and flavours.
We never lose our ardent expectations that teachers and concerned fellows of district Howrah would look up to DIET and would consider it as their own Cape of good hope.
