Brief history

The Lakhimpur Post Graduate Training College, a teacher education institution was founded in the year 1976 under Dibrugarh University, Dibrugarh, Assam. The institution has been imparting teacher training to pre-service and in-service teachers with an objective of enhancing quality education of the teacher of Lakhimpur in particular and Assam in general. The need of establishment of teacher education institution was felt at North Lakhimpur because of ever increasing number of high and higher secondary schools in the nooks and corners of the District. It was a need of the hour. Earlier, teachers of various high schools were sent on deputation by the Govt.  of Assam to  study and acquire B.T. or B.Ed. degree but due to dearth of seats only a few could avail this. To mitigate the problem it was felt that the establishment of a Post Graduate Training College will effectively train and educate the teachers to be a competent teacher with value oriented education.


Since its inception, this institution has been serving as the Teacher Education Institution not only for the North Bank of Assam i.e. from the Morkokseleng to Darrang District but also to the other states like Arunachal Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Kerala, etc.


At present this institution is in effort of eradicating this problem by producing competent teachers for schools. Moreover realizing the need of competent science teachers in secondary schools, General Science Method Subject was introduced in the year 2000 in the college. Till today 530 nos of Science teacher-students have obtained B. Ed. Degree with Science Method Subject.


The Govt. of Assam has deputed in-service teachers to this institution since 1991. Till date 1650 nos. of teacher-students have qualified B. Ed. degree from this institution.


The college has been included under section 2(f) and 12B of UGC Act. 1956.


With the existence of National Council for Teacher Education, a statutory Body of Govt. of India, New Delhi, it has become mandatory for the college to get recognition from the Apex Body. The Lakhimpur Post Graduate Training College was granted recognition by NCTE since 1997 with an intake of 60.


A master plan has been prepared to fulfill the infra-structure facilities of norms and standards of NCTE in allotted land of Govt. of Assam in Nakari Mouza, Nalkata, North Lakhimpur, Assam.


Indira Gandhi Open University, New Delhi has identified this institution as one of the IGNOU Centre for conducting different programmes. KKHSOU, Guwahati has introduced a Study center for conducting DELED Program for in-service Primary and Upper Primary Teacher of Govt. Of Assam since 2013.
