SHILLONG, Oct 17: The closing ceremony of Sesquicentennial Celebrations of Cherra Teachers’ Training Centre (CTTC) concluded here on Tuesday. Speaking at the event, Chief Minister Dr Mukul Sangma said the government has tried to align different programmes and interventions to live up to the me and fame of the State as a centre for education.

“The State has for long missed upon leveraging upon the legacy of being the hub of education and the opportunities that could have been generated out of it,” he added.

He further said the government has to facilitate and create an ebling environment for education to promote quality and higher education to equip children to ultimately become a member of the global community capable of competing at the global scale.

The Chief Minister stated that there is a need for setting up more teachers’ training institutions in the State and the government has embarked upon a number of initiatives to encourage genuinely-aspiring youths who want to become teachers by choice, and not teachers by default. He said the approach to education needs to be revisited and education centres need to look at other associated courses and go beyond the normal courses so that the students are groomed and molded into productive citizens, while infusing in them moral values.

Located at Nongsawlia, Sohra, the CTCC is one of the oldest teachers’ training institutes in the State. It is the project of the Khasi-Jaintia Presbyterian Assembly.
