Valummel Teacher Training Institute was started in 2004 by the Meenakshi
Charitable Trust at Moolankave near Sulthan Bathery in the Wayanad
district of Kerala state.
One of the educationally backward districts of the state, Wayanad
was in limelight recently for its farm crisis, educational backwardness
and recurring suicides of farmers.
The poor plight of the people of the district led many educationists
to start educational institutions to assist the agrarian community
to grab the fruits of new vistas of information and knowledge. The
institution aims at moulding right persons into good teachers and
assists them to become role models.
The Institute succeeded in carving its own niche in the educational
arena of the district. Within in a small span of time it proved
its presence felt as its students emerged toppers not only in examinations
but also in extra curricular activities.
The first batch of the institution was started on 11th October
2004. Additional intake of 50 students was allotted on 15th October
The institution is Located close to NH 212, Calicut-Mysore Highway,
