The Tagore Government College of Education has been growing ever since its inception in 1981. The college started providing a platform for the graduates and postgraduates passing out of JNRM, Port Blair and Mahatma Gandhi College, Mayabunder to seek a professional course and also to seek a job. There were 50 trainees in the first batch of the College and it’s a matter of pride for this college that many of the officers and teachers working in the Education Department and other departments of A&N Administration and Central Govt. Departments are its products. In 1987-88, the affiliation of this College was shifted to Pondicherry Central University. With the establishment of National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE) in 1993 with statutory authority, the Govt. B.Ed. College got its recognition from the NCTE in 1997. As per the revised norms of NCTE 2014, two years B.Ed. degree programme has began from the academic year 2015-16.
