t was with a view to filling the gap in higher education for aspiring students in the villages of Perambra, that the Mother Teresa College of Teacher Education was started. It was begun at the initiative of Advocate K. A. Devasya under the aegis of the Rural Education and Social Trust. The college started functioning as a B.Ed teacher training institute in 2006. Affiliated to Calicut University it has places for hundred students to do the B. Ed.programme in English, Maths, Physical Science and Social Science.
Fr. John Panamthottathil, provincial, and his team took over the institute in October 2010. It moved premises from the temporary accommodation at Chembanoda to a newly constructed permanent accommodation at Punnachal, near Kakkad. The college has been developing at a fast pace. A new building was constructed for the college under the supervision of Fr. George Kochuvelikkakath and was blessed by the Thamarassery Bishop Mar Remegios Injananiyil. The college has various facilities including a language lab, psychology lab, science lab, social science lab and computer lab. Fr Mathew Kalarickal is the first director of the college.
