Indian Institute of Teacher Education

With the objective of training world class teachers for the future generation, the Indian Institute of Teacher Education (IITE) was established in 2010. Brainchild of the then CM of Gujarat, Shri Narendra Modi, the institute wishes to fill in the gap that the state and the country at large is facing in terms of quality teachers. "If you send a businessman to a foreign land, he controls dollars, but if you send a teacher s/he would control the whole generation". Modi used to say.

To lend a material shape to the best educational philosophies from across the world, a team of experts led by the legendary Indian academician and philosopher Shri Kireetbhai Joshi and other scholars of national and international stature came together to design the curriculum of IITE.

To nurture teachers of tomorrow with the transformative knowledge of Indian tradition and usher in a new era of teacher education, focusing upon the integral development of teachers.

To provide integrated courses in teacher education, marked and defined by value-education, global outlook, and interdisciplinary.
