About Us

Improving the performance of the Elementary school education is the most important challenge in elementary education. This is because of the fact that they play an important role in the educational system. Although efforts have been made to improve the quality of teachers, yet little has been achieved in this regard. When we talk about the materials they teach, their teaching skills and motivation levels , it is felt that much is to be done. Therefore some broad strategies have been taken up for the development and strengthening of teachers education by setting up Teacher Education Institutes.

With a view to restructuring and reorganizing of Elementary Teacher Education in our State, District Institutes of Education and Training (DIETS) have been set up in all the Districts of the State to provide academic and resource support to elementary school teachers. District Institute of Education and Training, therefore serve as per needs of the district at its capacity. In the Ri Bhoi District of Meghalaya, the District Institute of Education and Training has been set up at Saiden, Nongpoh and was inaugurated on 8th of July,2003 by the then Chief Minister of Meghalaya, Shri D.D. Lapang.
