Welcome To St. Joseph's College of Teacher Education

St. Joseph's College of Teacher Education, the premier institute and the pride of Mandya was established with the great objective of empowering women and encouraging self-dependence. It was founded on a solid background of a great inheritance. The history of its development and achievements over the years are a pointer to this. Right from its inception, the institute has been doing commendable and remarkable service to the womenfolk coming from the poor and lower income groups of the society.
St. Joseph's College of Teacher Education is managed by the Religious Sisters of C.S.S.T. It was the cherished vision realized today which was dreamt a few centuries ago by the revered Mother Teresa of St. Rose of Lima-the foundress.
In the third five year plan, the Government of India, with a view to promote and encourage Primary education laid great emphasis on setting up Teacher Training Institutes. As a result, four training institutes were established and St.Joseph's is one among them.
On the 15th of July in 1960 the institute saw the light of day. As per the accord reached between the Government and the Management, the institute was permitted to admit 100 candidates of which 25% was set aside for the in-service teachers and remaining for the minorities and backward classes. Sister Stella Maris, the founder of the institute functioned as the first superintendent.
