Free College of Special Education

We are also happy to inform you that we have started a college offering B.Ed. Special Education( Visual Impairment). It was inaugurated in August 2015 by Justice Raja of Madras High Court and Selvi. Apoorva IAS, Secretary of Higher Education Department. The course is which is affiliated to Tamilnadu Teachers Education University and also recognized by Rehabilitation Council of India. There is a false assumption that teachers with B.Ed. in Special Education are eligible to teach in only special schools. But it is not true. Teachers with B.Ed. in Special Education are eligible to work as faculty in both regular schools as well as special schools. As per Government Order (G.O. No. 56 dated 24/4/2012) issued by the Higher Education Department, Govt. of Tamil Nadu, B.Ed. (Special Education) is equivalent to B.Ed. (General Education) and they are considered at par for the purpose of employment in schools. Visually impaired boys and girls are welcome to join our B.Ed. in special education course and Nethrodaya is willing to offer this prestigious professional course completely free of cost for 30 students.
