Introduction :

India will soon overtake China as the country with the world's largest population. With an average annual GDP growth of about 8%, India needs more educated and skilled young people. Hence, the demand for higher education may grow well over 500 million in the next ten years. To meet this increasing demand, India needs thousands of teachers every year in all disciplines. Teachers in higher educational institutions are the most influential and powerful agents for maintaining the quality of education. Apart from a sound knowledge in their disciplines, young and aspiring teachers should be trained in techniques related to pedagogy, communication and technology. As of now there are no formal education programs for teachers in tertiary educational institutions. To address this need, PSG CARE (PSG Center for Academic Research and Excellence) , an institution under the PSG & Sons' Charities Trust is offering a One Year Certification Program in Teacher Training.
