Today we need a new breed of teachers who continually updated themselves as knowledge explosion is taking place at a rapid pace. We need learning teachers. We need learning principals, we need learning lecturers and professors. The Japanese have progressed fast because of continuous updating, learning and improvement.
While knowledge is the key to progress and development, moral values especially the fundamental values are today ignored and misinterpreted. Teaching life oriented and value based subjects is necessary for a more relevant education today. If the child is to be better prepared to function and explore future opportunities the necessity for an education that is pro-life and value oriented is the need of the hour.
In the past and even today some of the educational Institutions are just focussing only on language and mathematical intelligence. But there are other areas of intelligence we need to focus on and develop in the children.
Our education today, needs to become creative and skill based. Education needs to enable students to learn certain skills in school which can be utilised to create new products for the benefit of society at large. What they learn in the class room becomes a tool for creative thinking and innovative practices.
All the students do not get into colleges or universities. Some of them do not even complete their School Leaving certificate examination. For various reasons that are e.g. pecuniary, lack of interest, lack of opportunities, family problems etc, they are forced to leave school or college. They need to be taught skills that make them employable in the job market.
Today we can say that education is “relationship”. The teacher by her/his friendly ways influences the students on the learning and teaching process as well as in character formation. It is normal for youngsters to give vent to their pent up energy in little pranks which can go sometimes beyond the limits. They need to be channelized in creative ways. This requires preplanning and foresight. The repressive system advocates the principle “spare the rod and spoil the child”. Today it needs to be replaced with the more proactive system called the preventive system. This system seeks to replace evil with good; destructive behaviour with constructive behaviour.
Today, relevant motivation needs to be offered in order that teachers look at teaching as a vocation and a profession rather than a job. They must have enthusiasm in what they do and teach. This enthusiasm must be transferred to the children in the teaching and learning process. Every teacher must know that they shape the future of the children they come in contact with during their teaching career. Hence they need to look upon each student as their own child and care for their welfare.
Inspired by the benign and noble teachings of Lord Jesus Christ who declared of himself “ I am the Way, the Truth and the Life”, and guided by the moral and educational philosophy of St. John Bosco, Don Bosco College of Teacher Education (DBCE) envisions generations of in-service and pre-service teachers qualified and motivated to impart quality education at the secondary and higher secondary levels. Don Bosco’s principles of education – based on reason, religion and kindness – will guide the training programme. There is no better contribution to education than the effective training and motivation of teachers.
The Bachelor of Eduation (B.Ed) Programme of DBCE, affiliated to Gulbarga Univerwsity and recognized by NCTE, aims at developing the understanding and competencies required by teacher – trainees for effective teaching – learning process at the secondary stage. It enables in-service and pre-service teachers to select and organize learning experiences according to the requirements of today’s learners. In addition, it provides knowledge and develops in them an understanding of areas such as student psychology, guidance and counseling, educational evaluation, educational, technology, school management, etc.

Personal appearance is an important aspect of communicating professionalism, particularly for a teacher.

Don Bosco College of Education, being and institution imparting professional education, presupposes the existence of an environment of integrity. The faculty, students and administrative staff share the responsibility for maintaining this environment. To achieve this objective, this code of ethics has been developed.
A code of ethics is a part of any profession. It serves as a guideline for forming attitudes and directing conduct. We expect this code to help mould every teacher- trainee into persons of integrity whose lives are characterized by harmonious living and God-orientation. All members of the college community are expected to abide by this code in letter and in spirit, within and outside the campus.
This code of Ethics lays down norms of behavior for the more important contexts of life in a college. These guideless, however, are not exhaustive. Other norms of behavior may be enacted from time to time as and when found necessary. Any conduct that goes against the letter and spirit of these principles and norms will be considered a violation of this code.
