SCERT Itanagar

The State Council of Educational Research & Training (SCERT), Itanagar came into being in 2011 after up-gradation of the erstwhile State Institute of Education (SIE) functioning in Changlang. Its evolution into SCERT was necessitated to meet the exceptional challenges of the teacher education system arising from the massive expansion of school education both at elementary and secondary level with corresponding demand for quality teacher education in the state. Consequent upon enforcement of Arunachal Pradesh State Education Act-2010, SCERT has been declared as the Academic Authority of the state. Besides, effective implementations of various educational programmes like RTE-SSA, RMSA and SBM in the state also required a proactive role of the SCERT. The SCERT, at present, functions as a leading resource institution with the objective of qualitative improvement of both school and teacher education by conducting need based research activities, developing curricular and Teaching Learning Materials (TLMs) and providing quality teacher education through PSTE and ISTE programmes in the state. In addition to providing necessary academic support to the Directorates of Elementary and Secondary Education, the SCERT also co-ordinates the activities of regional and national level educational institutions and organizations such as NERIE, RIEs NCERT, CCRT, NCTE, NUEPA & UNESCO etc. in the state. The SCERT, Arunachal Pradesh is located at Gohpur Tinali, Vidya Vihar, 3 KM. away from the state Civil Secretariat, Itanagar.
