The best teachers are those that show you where to look but don't tell you what to see.

The age old norms of providing education with thrust on outcomes only has given rise to many problems like burnout syndrome, stress, guilty-feeling and loss of love for knowledge. Psychology helps us to peep and delve deeper into tender hearts of learners and gain insight into their interests, aptitudes, abilities and moulding the teaching practices so as to reinforce good habits and learning. It is incumbent on a teacher to know about various tests, tools, psychological researches to enable him/her to provide sound, healthy and progressive atmosphere to learners. In view of this fulfillment, the college has established a psychology laboratory. The laboratory is used by both teachers and learners to gain information and depth in overcoming their psychological barriers and increase effective learning and teaching.

If science is necessary to make a person rational, art is equally desirable to make a person imaginative, creative and sensitive to aesthetic side of life. Mere rationality stunts the growth of human mind. The softer hues of color, the tender touch of nature, its benevolent gifts and the very basis of civilization i.e. Farming / Agriculture can be best understood by having knowledge of Interior Decoration, Gardening and Painting. In addition to this, creative energy can be utilized to earn as well as learn. Craft (Whether candle-making or chalk making) makes a person self-reliant as well as sensitive to finer sentiments. The Art and Craft Laboratory of the college is such a place where students channelize their internal energy to provide a productive outlet.
English language is one of the most spoken languages over the globe. It is also the official language of U.N.O. In India also, English is spoken by a large number of people with love and gusto. Good pronunciation in English language is quite important and this can be possible only by acquiring the art of communication through speech. Yet the hard fact remains that much attention has not been paid to this aspect of language learning and teaching in our educational institutions. Especially in the context where English is learnt as a second language, the problem becomes all the more alarming. The linguistic habits already acquired in learning the mother tongue stand in the way of learning the language and thus hamper the proficiency in speaking the language. It is also important to mention here that in English, there is very less correspondence between the orthography (spelling) and the spoken form (phonetics). The 26 letters of English alphabet are represented by 44 sounds. It is therefore, essential that the learners of English make a systematic study of sound system of the language. Keeping all these things in mind and to cater the needs of the pupil teachers regarding their mastery of Communication skills in English, the college has established Language Laboratory which provides pupil teachers an opportunity to get proficiency in all the four language skills i.e. Reading, Writing, Listening & Speaking.
