The main philosophy of UGC for Human Resource Development Centre is to keep in mind that the teacher is central to the system. While it is universally accepted that the teacher is the pivot of the educational system, our system does not provide adequate opportunities for their professional development. It is, therefore necessary to develop inbuilt mechanisms to provide opportunities for teachers within the framework of knowledge society. It is also accepted that a teacher must not be confined only to transmitting information; she/he must also orient students to meet the challenges of life, to not merely become a trained professional, but also a better citizen.
