It is located in the heart of industrial city and spread over 10 acres of land. It gets grant from the State Government. The unit cost of education is Rs. 9749.36. The Management of the college is running four more educational institutions on the same campus. In addition, it is running 'Bala Ashram' ment for orphan children right from three years of age to the terminal stage of school education. This effort is indeed laudable.

Shri C.H. Shah Maitri Vidyapeeth Mahila College of Education, Surendranagar volunteered to be assessed by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council by submitting its Self-study report. National Assessment and Accreditation Council constituted an Expert Committee to visit the college and validate its report. The Peer Team comprises of Dr. H.S. Soch, Former Vice-Chancellor, Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar, as Chairperson, Professor Girijesh Kumar, Dean & Head, Faculty of Education and Allied Sciences, M.J.P. Rohilkhand University, Barelli, as Member coordinator, NAAC, Professor Malini Subramanian, Former Principal, Institute of Advanced Studies, Saidpet, Chennai, as Member. The Peer Team visited the institution for two days from 26th to 27th September, 2005.

The Peer Team carefully perused and analyzed the self-study report submitted by the institution. During the actual visit, Peer Team went through the relevant documents, visited the departments and interacted with the various constituents of the institution. The academic, co-curricular, sports and other activities of the institution were looked into. The Peer Team interacted at length with the Principal, the faculty, students, non-teaching staff, parents and alumni of the institution.

Based on the above exercise, the inputs were obtained from the college. Keeping in mind the criteria identified by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council, the Peer Team prepared the report for the purpose of institutional accreditation.

Criterion I : Curriculum Design and Planning
The college comes under purview of National Council for Teacher Education as far as compliance to the rules and regulations of starting B.Ed. programmes are concerned. This will cover the enrolment, number of teachers to be appointed, the duration of curriculum of the courses, infrastructure requirements, etc.

The college is affiliated to Saurashtra University, Rajkot. The curriculum is designed by the Board of Studies, the Faculty of Education and the Academic Council of the university. The college strictly follows the curriculum in letter and spirit.

The admission is based on the academic merit of the students; or as required by the university. The reservation policy of the State Government in admissions & approved by the University is followed.

The curriculum is unitized and completed within one year. It was heartening to see that the number of working days in the college is 214 and the teaching days exceed 190 which is a healthy sign. The period of practice teaching days extends more than a month. Every student undergoes 4 micro lessons, 30 observation lessons and 40 lessons during the Internship.

The aims and goals of the institution are:
To kindle what is best in an individual and to develop it.
To orient the learners to what is best in the world.
To develop national and social character of the learners.
To impart value based education.
To develop good citizens.
To make efforts so that society gets good teachers.

The college, keeping in view these missions and goals, intends to prepare dedicated teachers after they complete their education at this Vidyapeeth.

Normally, it takes one year for the college to introduce a new programme as system of affiliation in the university takes about the same period.

Since curriculum is structured within the university system, the institution cannot decide any additional programme or restructuring relating to the curriculum. However, three teachers of this college are normally involved by the university to update the curriculum as and when the revision of the course is required.

In the beginning of the session, the college provides general orientation programme to the students with a view to enlightening them about the teaching programme activities in the college round the year. This being altogether a new type of curriculum after their graduation, the need for proper orientation will always be there. There are 4 permanent lecturers including Principal. The technical and administrative section comprises 10 members.

The college prepares the academic calendar of the year in the light of the university guidelines. Time-table and classes are allocated right in the beginning of the session. The faculty, under the chairmanship of the Principal, holds the meetings of their departments where the details of curriculum completion are finalized. The Principal ensures the implementation of academic calendar. The teachers prepare their teaching plan accordingly. Five periods for each theory paper are allotted in the time-table.

The transaction of theory courses include the teaching methodology courses. The pupil-teachers bring units of the subject from the school teachers. The college teacher guides them on the analysis of its content.

The lessons planning is designed by the students with the guidance of their teachers. Accordingly, the students decide the method of teaching, previous knowledge, the learning experiences, the presentation of the lessons and their follow up.

The black-board work is also well-planned and they are prepared to use the black-board properly. Black-board summary writing is explained to them. The students also deliver 4 micro-teaching lessons in their peer group wherein they teach and re-teach for five minutes. Prior to this, one demonstration-cum-model lesson in a subject is delivered by each subject teacher. The pre-practice preparation days are fifty, whereas the number of total practice teaching days are 37.

The practice teaching programme is conducted by the college to which the pupil-teachers are allotted. The students have to deliver 40 practice lessons during the internship in both the subjects. The college has involved 19 schools for this purpose. They teach in the schools under the control of the heads of concerned schools. The college teachers also visit them to guide them in the execution of teaching practice. The students observe a number of lessons of other pupil-teachers. The college teachers as well as other pupil-teachers write their observations and provide the concerned students with feed back immediately after the lesson is over. These lessons are given a score by the teachers. All this is done with a view that the pupil-teachers follow these recommendations and suggestions in their next lessons.

The system of evaluation is communicated to the students well-in-time. The college conducts tests for different terms, allots assignments, tutorials, home works, etc. The university result include internal assessment, which is communicated by the college about every student. Internal evaluation scores are awarded in practice teaching, sessional work, activity based programmes of internship, off campus, etc. The total evaluation score in internal assessment goes upto 500 whereas 600 marks are kept for external evaluation.

The students are given general knowledge required in day to day life in the subjects of Sciences, Humanities and Arts Janav Jevu (worth knowing) vividha, where important national and international events are discussed. An up-to-date record of the internal assessment is maintained by the college.

The college has evolved school community networking. The trainees join the students and teachers of a selected school. They take out processions, perform rallies, go for cleanliness programme so that the message of awareness to the society goes home.

The college follows the self-appraisal method for evaluating the performance of the faculty members in teaching and research. A prescribed proforma is filled by teachers and recommended by the Principal with a view to make them eligible for senior scale and the selection grade. The University Grants Commission requirement of attending Orientation courses and Refresher courses for the award of senior scale and selection grade is there as recommended by the University of Saurashtra.

The college being an undergraduate college does not have a research climate. It is, however, creditable for the college that all its teachers are already holding the Ph.D. degree. Though there is no research committee, still one teacher is engaged in research activity. She has already successfully produced two Ph.D. students. She is also conducting action research. All the four teachers are involved in the publication work limited to writing text- books of B.Ed.

They are enlightened to take care of these issues. Efforts are made by Science pupil-teachers to remove the superstitions and miracles from minds of rural folk. The Gram Sabhas are organized to bring awareness among the rural folk. Social work is undertaken without any exception. The extension activities organized by the college are indeed heartening.

The Campus of the college is spread over an area of 10 Acres where the other four institutions run by the Management are also located. The Campus is away from the industrial units, noisy city atmosphere and is kept neat, clean and green.

The college has already prepared a Master Plan of the institution indicating the future expansion also. There are four rooms in which chasses are held for the teaching of subjects content, project work, etc. There is a room meant for the women pupil-teachers. However, early in the morning, this room is used for conducting prayer.

It is quite a comprehensive document and enlightens every student of the rules and regulations of the college life during the study programme. The details of the financial aids and concessions available to the OBCs / SC / ST students as per rules of the Central Government and State Government and other facilities provided by the college are mentioned. The scholarships are available to the student as per norms and polices of the State Government. As per State policy, the women pupil-teachers do not pay any fee. Two students had enjoyed free hostel and Mess facility.

The results of the college are very satisfactory. The drop-out rate is minimal; not more than 2%. The college does not have feed back with them about the students who had cleared the UGC, NET, SLET after completing their degree. The college, however, claims that a good number of its students go in for jobs in the schools as teachers; and that, very few go in for further studies.

The college collects feed back from its pupil-teachers at the end of the year. The feed back is discussed in the Staff meeting and put to its advantage. A well-structured mechanism is yet to be developed.

The college organizes off campus teaching practice for one week in a basic school located in a rural area of another district where the students not only reside there but also learn the mechanics of teaching in a rural area. This off campus training is indeed appreciative. Another teacher having the expertise in theatre prepares the students in organizing various theatrical events, dance events and other cultural activities.

The college provides academic and personal counselling to the students. The college Wall Paper provides information on different topics from time to time. The topics are of the general interest to the students. Employment News is available in the college.

The college is governed and managed by three agencies. The National Council of Teacher Education decides about the intake of students, the faculty requirements, the infrastructural requirements and lays down norms for running it as per rules. It also lays the conditions which are to be complied for the regular permanent affiliation.

The Managing Committee of the institution decides in detail the annual planning and other activities. The Managing Committee also sanctions the budget for every educational institution. It also takes care of the maintenance of the buildings. For better control, the Managing Committee constitutes formal committees that are empowered to take decision regarding the betterment of the institution. The principal of the college has academic and administrative control.

The recruitment of the teachers is done by the duly constituted Selection Committees according to the norms of the Saurashtra University Statutes and rules of the State Government. Presently, the college is having only four teachers and no recruitment has taken place in the last couple of years. The Management can appoint part-time, temporary, adhoc teachers from time to time, as per requirement and would pay from its own funds.

There is an internal Audit mechanism by the Managing Committee and by the Government. No major audit objections are standing against the college.

The college has a Grievance Redressal mechanism, but it is hardly needed because the pupil-teachers remain only for few months here and a close relation between them reduces the grievances. The institution has developed a formal mechanism for day-to-day issues wherein the Secretary of the Management, the Principal, a member of the Staff and key Secretary of the Students' Association sit, participate and take decisions on routine matters.

The college managing committee deserves a pat on there back for the devotion and missionaries spirit with which they run different institutions including the 'Bala Ashram' for approximately 125 orphan students.

The welfare measures to the staff are as per State Government norms. They can draw loans for festivals, for food grains, loans out of their provident fund, housing loans, as per State Government rules and regulations. The non teaching staff has also shown the will to work. The record keeping is quite good. The services of some of them could be utilized for sports and literally activities.

The college which was established in 1988 continues to cater to the needs of preparing dedicated women teachers. They are provided a good academic climate where teaching-learning takes place in a respectable way. The teachers use various kinds of audio-visual tools in teaching. There is a fine rapport between the teachers, pupil-teachers and the management. All of them wear white Khadi Saree and white Dress. The discipline in the college is worth emulation and follow and they also follow the Gandhian philosophy of education. The college has been making every effort to successfully carry on the B. Ed. programme for the last 18 years. It is keen to add M. Ed. Class on its campus however the state government has a policy matter has yet not given them no objection certification.

On the whole, it can be safely said that within their constraints, the college has made every effort to provide good teaching. Its results are good, drop out rate is very small; and it enjoys reputation of a good institution at Surendranagar.

Recommendations :
The instruments and tools for the utilization of educational technology be added further in the context of education in schools where computer education and other facilities are now increasingly available.

The college is advised to fill up the vacant positions as per norms of the National Council of Teacher Education. The future recruitment as a policy matter should prefer women candidates in both in teaching and office staff.

Faculty may be ask for the member ship of professional bodies.
The Alumni Association has recently been established. It needs to be strengthened. Its Constitution needs to be prepared so that the Alumni Association starts functioning effectively with a view to help in the development of college.

The college may think of starting M.Ed. class as these will help in broadening the horizon of the institution.

Library services should be computerized. Efforts be made to provide computer literacy to the Library personnel and also the administrative staff.

The college may think of introducing courses like Home Science, Fine Arts, Performing Art, Embroidery, Fruit Preservation, Cutting and Tailoring, Needle work, Computer Application etc. to women teachers so as to improve employment opportunities.

Teachers must be encouraged to utilize multi-media and other teaching machines to improve upon their teaching pedagogy.

Setting up of a language laboratory in English will help in development of communication skills amongst the prospective Secondary School teachers which is vital for them.

Facility of Internet be made available on the campus a specially in the library and hostel.

The college is advised to establish Career Guidance and Counseling Cell.

The college may make efforts to contact different schools of the area and make efforts to arrange for some kind of placement of their teacher-pupils in different schools.

Selected Research journals and periodical volumes be added to the library.

Book bank facility may be provided to poor students.
SUPW workshop should be developed.
