Criterion-I Curriculum Design & Planning:
The Institution has clearly stated vision, mission and goals.

The goals and objectives do conform to national and global goals of teacher education. They are made known to students, teachers, staff and parents. They are circulated among students in the induction sessions at the beginning. They are also displayed at strategic places on the notice board. It is desirable that vision, mission and objectives of the college are made known to parents and the society at large.

All the curricular, co-curricular and extra-curricular programmes are planned and prepared before the close of academic session of the previous year. Academic calendar is prepared and it is followed scrupulously.

Criterion-II Curriculum Transaction and Evaluation:
The college follows centralized admission policy. The Hemchandracharya North Gujarat University advertises admission process in the month of February and invites applications for all the seats in grant-in-aid colleges and 85% seats in self-financed colleges. The college-wise information is given in the admission form. The college of Education should have a separate website. The information about the college and its vision, mission, goals and objectives shall be incorporated in the website. Admission cell of the college monitors the admission process. After declaration of merit, the candidates are interviewed and records are verified. Admissions are given as per merit and reservation policy of Government of Gujarat.

All the six teaching faculty members are Ph.D degree holders and have more than 10 years teaching experience. They have to their credit required number of orientation and refresher courses. All of them have publications of papers and books to their credit.

Teachers provide guidance to students for development of teaching learning material. However, there is scope for promotion of consultancy and collaboration with University professionals and school teachers to improve curriculum transaction in particular and teacher education in general.

Criterion-III Research, Consultancy and Extension:
All the six teachers including the Principal of the college are having Ph.D. as the highest qualification. The Institution supports the teachers in pursuing research in education. Library along with Internet facility is available to teachers. Leave is granted to teachers for attending various workshops, seminars, conferences etc. Financial assistance is also provided to the teachers out of UGC grant.

The college has research orientation as one of its objectives. The teaching faculty undertakes action research projects. Earlier the college had M.Ed. programme. The teachers used to provide guidance to the M.Ed. students. Presently, the B.Ed. programme is having compulsory action research activities as part of curriculum. The students teachers are provided guidance in action research by the teachers.

The faculty could not undertake major / minor research projects during the last five years. Presently three teachers have submitted a minor research project jointly. Gujarat Council of primary education, state project office, DPEP, Gandhinagar will provide the funds.

Faculty members had presented papers in seminars and conferences. These were published in University and educational journals. The faculty had published books also. However, the faculty had no publication of research papers in reputed research journals.

All teachers of this college are lifetime members of All India Association of Educational Research. Dr. S.A.Patel has jointly published four books. Dr. P.N.Patel has one joint and three individual publications at her credit. Dr.D.M.Chaudhary, Dr. V.V.Chaudhary has one individual publication each. Dr. J.I.Patel has one joint publication. Two faculty members are associated with administrative work of two schools.

The college lacks NSS, NCC and extension services units in the college. However, the college had established strong bond with society through organization of Blood Donation Camps, Street plays, rallies legal campaigns about consumer protection. Fund collection drive for victims of natural calamities like earthquake, tsunami, flood victims etc. have also been organized. One teacher holds additional charge of the extension activities.

It is desirable to establish linkages between the college, practicing schools and the community. It should have vertical linkages with state, national and international agencies like SCERT, NCERT, NUEAP, UGC, ICSSR, EMRCS ISRO, UNESCO, UNICEF, etc.

Criterion-IV Infrastructure and the Learning Resources:
The Campus of the college is spread over an area of 4.33 acres in urban locality. The campus is away from the city atmosphere and kept neat, clean and green.

There are five rooms in which classes are held for the teaching methodologies. There is a computer room with requisite furniture and printer fitted in it. The institution has separate toilets and latrines for boys and girls. Besides, this college has separate rooms for Principal, Office and Staff.

The college maintains the library containing 21014 books. The college also subscribes 30 magazines and 7 Indian Journals and 45 CDs/DVDs related to education. The total carpet area of library is 816 sq. meters with a sitting capacity of 30 students. The college librarian is qualified and competent. He functions under the guidance of library committee headed by the Principal. It would have been better if the library could provide a photocopier to facilitate students. Additional allocations of funds for the purchase of books and journals be provided every year to strengthen and update the library. The enhancement of computer facility for library transaction would definitely improve the academic facility in the context of performance and chances for further growth.

The college has a computer, psychology, science laboratories etc. The laboratories are properly developed and the educational technology lab awaits establishment in near future.

There is a need of Health Center on the campus. First Aid Box, however, is available in the institution. The campus has very limited facilities for the sports. The campus climate is quite conducive for the academic activity and growth. It would be in the benefit of students if library is extended to physically challenged persons.

Criterion -V Students Support and Progression:
The student support and progression of any teaching education institute depends on the strength of the system efficiency developed within the institution in number terms of percentage of students successfully qualifying the examination. For the last three consecutive years, there is substantial growth of students successfully qualifying the examination.

A mechanism could be developed to monitor the NET/SLET selected students and other jobs with structured documentation. It would have been better if additional facilities such as tutorials, seminars, workshops etc are conducted for students to enable them to compete for jobs and progression to higher education.

It is appreciable that the college has its alumni association called VECSA, which gave donations to the flood relief fund in Surat. It would be desirable to publish a prospectus of the college giving details of fee structures, vision, mission, objectives, etc and other accomplishments of the college. The details of the financial, concessions available to OBCs/SC/ST students as per rules of the Central Govt. and State Govt. should also be incorporated.

The results of the college are very good. The dropout rate is minimal e.g. less than 5%. The college does not have feedback from the students who had cleared NET/SLET after completing their degree. A well-structured mechanism is yet to be developed. The college wallpaper provides information on different topics from time to time. Personal guidance is provided to students. The college does not have a formal placement cell. However the college helps students in job promotion.

The college nominates General Secretary, Ladies Representative and Cultural Secretary on the basis of their merit and performance.

Good traditions prevail in the institution as Gold medallists are awarded prizes and honored by the managing trustee.

However, during interaction with the students, it has been revealed that close relationship between the teachers and students reduces the number of grievances. The institution has committees for day-to-day issues/problems wherein the trustees of the management, the Principal take decisions on routines matters. However, it would be desirable to associate the teaching faculty on the different committees.

The college Alumni Association (VECSA) deserves appreciation for their donations and missionary zeal with which they help the college in mobilizing financial resources.

The welfare measures to the staff are as per state govt. norms. The non-teaching staff is well motivated and co-operative.
