From the Principal's Desk
The District Institute of Education and Training (DIET) was established as a pivotal part of the larger mission of achieving excellence in education in India. As a part of the mission, DIET, Sivasagar, Sonari has rigorously been involved in imparting training and orientation to the teachers both in pre-service and in-service education, developing resource supports such as extension, guidance, materials, teaching aids and tools, etc. and conducting action researches in the districts of Sivasagar and Charaideo. The changing global scenario exerts the Indian education system to be more flexible, holistic, experimental, integrated, learner centered and discussion based so that critical thinking and problem solving capabilities can be inculcated among students. Our institute is deeply dedicated to adapt with such changes. Our faculties commit to bring out efficient and capable teachers to meet the demands of current education scenario. Apart from this, we work closely with the various allied institutions, social workers, NGOs etc. to develop a collaborative approach to fulfill our vision and mission. We hope to build a competent educational system, attributed to high quality, equity and integrity in the districts of Sivasagar and Charaideo.
