Teachers who have attended ICTRC programs have always felt the need for further training in the field of guidance and counselling. However, due to paucity of time and scarcity of worthwhile training programs, they have not been able to join any courses in this field. A need was always felt for a Distance Learning Program which caters to working teachers. To bridge this gap, ICTRC introduced the 1 year Post Graduate Diploma in Guidance and Counselling through online mode. This diploma enables in-service teachers to avail the opportunity of pursuing the course without having to leave their places of work or residence.

Eligibility (Any one of the following)
  • (a) In-service teachers with a minimum of two years of teaching experience.
  • (b) In-service teachers possessing graduation with a teaching degree/diploma.
  • (c) Teachers not presently employed but possessing graduation with a teaching degree/diploma.
  • (d) *Candidates pursuing teaching degree/diploma.
  • (e) *Post-graduates in Psychology/Social Work/Education/Child Development/Special Education.
*Those who are pursuing these courses can also apply. However, their diploma will be awarded only on successful completion of their degree.
