Basic Training Centre
Basic Training Centre, Resubelpara was established in 1974 at Resubelpara under East Garo Hills District, recently the same becoming the
Headquarter of the newly created North Garo Hills District since 2012. The Primary purpose of the existence of BTC, Resubelpara was to provide
quality training to in-service teachers from different L.P. Schools under the District. However, in course of time the Institution had also
received and trained deputed teachers from other Districts of Garo Hills including that of even Khasi Hills. Since its inception, the institution
was mostly engaged in conducting long term training having minimum duration of at least one year course viz. Junior Teachers' Training Certificate.
BTC, Resubelpara has also conducted two years course known as Diploma in Elementary Education (D.El.Ed) course during the year 2011-2012. Other
than the long term training courses BTC, Resubelpara has also occasionally conducted short term trainings such as 10/20 days S.S.A. Trainings,
Refresher courses, etc. for both the L.P. School Teachers and U.P. School Teachers.
In short, before the advent of S.S.A. Teachers' Training Programmes and DIET in the District, BTC, Resubelpara was the sole institution engaged in
training for upgrading or raising the quality and standard of teaching and learning in Primary Schools in the District and thus played a pivoted
role in laying the foundation for the growth of individuals as well as that of society.
