Building a Future in Teaching

About the Course

The DAV Group of Schools launched the year-long Guru Shikshanam course in 2018 primarily with an intent to address the dearth of quality teachers across the board, in the country. This Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) course is based on a holistic approach to education and covers all aspects of learning and teaching. It follows the Goldilocks principle of just the right amount of theory and practical sessions, an unprecedented design.

Aspirants are empowered to effectively teach at least two preferred subjects for any class ranging from standard 1 to 10.

Course Structure

The course is divided into three semesters – each focusing on Primary, Middle and High School respectively.  A plethora of subjects including Livings Values, Classroom Management, Child Psychology, Technology in Education and much more gives trainees the opportunity to groom their personality and inner well-being, equip themselves with the tools necessary for effective teaching and in a sense, become future-ready. The course curriculum is truly one-of-a-kind.

Faculty and Training

The faculty team comprises of highly qualified educators with vast experience, tremendous energy and dedication towards the profession. Various workshops are also conducted to keep trainees updated on the latest developments in the field of education. A certificate course on Inclusive Education by the Madras Dyslexia Association is included as part of the curriculum. First Aid sessions are also held to equip teachers with knowledge and practice to handle emergency situations.


A well-structured placement process is in place to provide trainees with job opportunities at the end of the course upon successful completion.

Batch 1

The pilot batch of Guru Shikshanam was highly successful and has received rave reviews from all quarters. The second batch of PGCE commenced in June 2019. It is very interesting to note that the PGCE course attracted candidates from all walks of life, including doctors, engineers, IT professionals, home-makers and even teachers.  All the candidates who completed the PGCE course in March 2019 have found placement in reputed schools and some have found jobs in our own institution.
