“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”- Nelson Mandela

Quality of a nation depends on the quality of its citizens, quality of the citizen depends on the quality of their education and the quality of education depends on the quality of the teacher. Teachers are the kingpins of any educational system. They are the builder of future generation. They play a vital role in helping youths to develop their talents and fulfill their potential for personal growth and well being. Teacher and education are of great importance in preparing budding minds and society for the future.

Government College of Education Banipur is one of the premier Teacher Education Institute in the state of West Bengal. The college was established in the year 1948 by the founder Principal Late Himangsu Bimal Majumder. Then the name of the College was Post Graduate Basic Training (PGBT) College. The Gandhian philosophy of basic education along with work education and art and craft is highly encouraged in this college. This was fully residential at that time. Later on, it was named as Government College of Education, Banipur.(1991) Presently the college is affiliated to Baba Saheb Ambedkar Education University (BSAEU) Erstwhile the West Bengal University of Teachers' Training, Education Planning and Administration (WBUTTEPA), erstwhile David Hare Training College. Presently this Government Institute runs only B.Ed. Course and offers training in teaching methods in almost all the subjects taught in Secondary Schools of West Bengal.

Our reputed institution dedicates itself towards preparation of competent teaching professionals for schools and teacher education colleges to impart high national standard and value-based education to inculcate a sense of social responsibility and citizenship skills. As a Principal, I invite my present and ex-students to communicate with me and share their constructive ideas that will develop this age-old institution. Let us pledge to work together to take our college to further height of excellence. I believe that when we dream together, it is the beginning of the reality and a vision to make the teaching learning process an exciting one.

With best wishes and blessing for the upcoming session.
