College History

 

In 2005 there was only one B.Ed. college in the entire district of Kanyakumari. It was a dire necessity for more B.Ed. Colleges. So the Anna Vinayagar Educational and Cultural Trust proposed to start a college of Education in 2006. To this effect a resolution was passed on 30-10-2006. It was followed by necessary initiatives and steps to start the college in the year 2006 - 2007. There were many hurdles and technical snags and the starting of the college did not materialize in that year. However due to the tireless and enthusiastic efforts of the chairman, Er. P. Sivathanu and Secretary, Mr. A. Kanagasabapathy, the college became a reality in the year 2007-2008. The college could not have come into existence but for the support and guidance of many in particular Mr. Kodikal S. Shiek Abdulla, Director, MET Colleges; Dr. B. Krishna Prasad, Principal, NVKSD College of Education, Attoor; Prof S. Kumaravelu, retired principal, Lekshmipuram College of Arts and Science, Neyyoor and Hon.N. Sureshrajan, former Minister of Tamil Nadu Government.

 

The Manonmaniam Sundaranar University in their order No. MSU / CD / FA / B.Ed. / 2007 - 2008 dated 20-11-2007 granted temporary affiliation to the college with a sanctioned strength of 100 students.  Our college has been affiliated to Tamil Nadu Teachers Education University, Chennai since 2008-2009 after it has been carved out as a separate University exclusively for the cause of Teacher Education by the government of Tamil Nadu. The college functions in the permanent building with Survey No: 563 / 11, 563 / 12.
