Ever since the beginning in 1957, the college has been made a glorious history in its own way in the educational field of Kerala. We nurture the women teachers with deep faith in God and oneself and committed to learner, society and profession with a burning thirst to illuminate all human kind and build a civilization of love as the vision of the institution emphasize. St.Joseph always upholds the values of discipline, freedom, commitment, dedication, hard work, social concern, patriotism and self-actualization.

The founder of our congregation St. Chavara Kuriakose Elias and the co-founder Fr.Leopold Beccaro OCD bequeathed to us the noble mission of dedicating ourselves for the upliftment and the faith formation of our fellowmen especially of women and children. Realizing the significance of teacher education, CMC entered to the realm through the establishment of this college. As an institution that prepares teachers and teacher educators, St.Joseph College of Teacher Education for Women acts as an agent of formation and transformation of society.

The history of St.Joseph College of Teacher Education For Women Ernakulam which spans fifty-seven years is studded with the annals of great accomplishments. The college has won a pride of place among the best teacher training colleges of the state. The reputation and achievements of Josephite’s are not only a gift from our predecessors; but also something that we hold in for our successors. Let us rededicate ourselves for molding the future generations. Every year the students have brought laurel to the college in academic and non-academic fields.  The devotion and selfless sacrifice of a galaxy of noble souls are enshrined in the saga of St.Joseph College of Teacher Education for Women. We are determined and committed to safeguard this marvelous legacy. I am happy to say that our faculty is single minded in their pursuit of enlightenment and all round development of each student. They are the boosting energy of this college.

In all our ventures we fall back on the merciful guidance and blessing of the Almighty. We always make sure to keep up a spiritual ambience in the institution which is inevitable for learning and imparting knowledge. We make sure that the students of this college imbibe the values and manners of a noble teacher while get practiced here.

Good education always makes a big difference.  Education determines the future of the country and we can contribute a lot to growth story of our country and also to this universe. Education is what removes our doubts and fears; what makes us happy and peaceful; what makes us better human beings. The teacher comes, removes the darkness and suddenly we find how beautiful this world is. At the same time, gaining knowledge alone doesn’t make one educated. Education is complete only when we learn how to live, how to hope, how to pray and how to behave to others.

There are ‘miles to go’ for the fulfillment of the duty which entrusted us by the time and god. That calls us for more hard work and enthusiasm.

Let’s flutter our wings tom fly to the horizon of knowledge and reach the goal.

Best wishes to all.
