Teachers play a pivotal role in educational process. As the quality of teachers so is the quality of education with in turn determines the quality of citizens and ultimately the well being of nation. To achieve the outcome of enhanced quality at all levels of education, different govt. organizations and agencies have been focusing their attention on quality assurance in teacher education. They provide adequate guidelines for formulating quality assurance policies as well as for adopting systems and procedures within teacher education institutions for enhancing the quality of the processes involved in teacher development. They have the specific purpose of preparing teachers who are effective in a cultural context. Teaching being a profession and teacher being a professional, the system of assessment and accreditation of teacher education institutions by an independent body such as National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) is being made an effective instrument for rising of quality of teacher education programmes and for enabling institutions in using their physical and instructional infrastructure optimally and professionally. The scheme of assessment and accreditation will help institutions to carry out their strength, weakness, opportunity and threat analysis, and in making their programmes more attractive to the students and to their potential employers.
