About   School of   Education
The School of Education found its legitimate place in the Eight   Schools established right from the beginning of Yashwantrao Chavan Maharashtra Open University. In the formative period itself it quickly responded to the long-awaited demand of in-service school teachers for B.Ed. programme. They were pre-requisite either for their career advancement or for their stability in job. Thus giving the University the prestige to be the first State Open University to launch professional programmes in education.
            We are developed a B.Ed. Programme according to NCTE Regulations 2014 Norms & Standards   (notified on 28.11.2014). This Programme is for in-service teachers careful attention to their longstanding experience, easy accessibility to the field and their own clarity of needs. We wanted to be different as we were Open University and were keen on awarding flexibility, self-direction and autonomy to our students. We wanted to be different as our mode was distance education and which required intensive as well as extensive use of ICT, blended mode of learning. This has given redirection to our efforts. The goad is clear. Although we know that it’s a journey without destination, we cherish in our hearts the eternal words of the Dyanapeeth Award Winner great Marathi poet, Kusumagraj.
            The School of Education came into existence along with the establishment of University. The School of Education in one of the Schools, which is the most responsive to the growing demands of the society. Hence it quickly responded to the need of the B.Ed. programme for in-service primary teachers and launched the same in 1991. The School has been keen on maintaining the quality and standard of  the B.Ed. As becoming “Mass University” is mandatory goad for the YCMOU, the School has decided to explore such thrust areas for the forthcoming programme which will direct have impact on the lower stratum of the society. One of the areas was empowerment and capacity building of ‘Anganwadi Sevikas’. There are more than one lakh Anganwadi Sevikas in Maharashtra, which are working for the help of early Childhood care and education as well as for formation of Self Help Group (SHG) of women in large number of villages in Maharathra. In this context the school of Education developed two Certificate Programmes namely ‘Certificate Programme for Self Help Group Facililitators’ and Certificate programme for Early Childhood Care and Development. In the process of the development of these programmes, the school realized that it has a great deal of capacity, experience and expertise in designing the HRD programmes through distance mode. Our vision reflects this.
