To strive towards making a healthy and progressive society ”Rajendranath Education and Welfare Trust” under the dynamic leadership of Shri Jayanta Kumar Chakrabarty , had sown the seed for its educational establishment in the form of “Rajendra Academy for Teachers’ Education” , a B.Ed college which was set up in the year 2009 having recognition from NCTE and affiliation from Burdwan University followed by a D.El.Ed college in 2014 having recognition from NCTE and affiliation from West Bengal Board of Primary Education. In 2018 RATE has awarded approval for M.Ed course from NCTE which turns RATE a complete composite Teachers Training Institution.
The institution has been promoting creative and critical thinking in teaching-learning processes with the desirable attitudinal changes among student teachers and also facilitating the process of enhancement for student teachers devotion towards learning, imagination, sense of individuality and creative flair.
RATE has proved its name as an institution of excellent education achieving almost 100 % of First class per year amongst many teacher training colleges of Burdwan University. Student teachers passing out of this college have grabbed good opportunities in government as well as private sectors which itself proves the academic quality of the college. In recent 2016, RATE has been awarded NAAC accreditation (GRADE- B) for its B.Ed course.
We believe the best and most effective training for gifted young people is accomplished in an intimate setting where talent is stretched and molded and where values are tested and refined.
