In the district of Bankura of West Bengal there is only one B.Ed. College situated in the Bishnupur Sub-Division. To cater to the long-standing need of the educated youths of Sonamukhi and adjacent areas of the district and other districts as well to undergo a teacher training course, establishment of a B.Ed. College was keenly felt. To meet this demand, the Athena Educational, Social & Charitable Trust came forward. Prompted by a sense of philanthropic mission to provide quality education for the teachers to be, the Trust set up the Athena B.Ed. College in 2004. This is the first self- financing college importing the B.ED â€“ Training course in the District of Bankura.
The college was thus born of a commitment to fulfil the aspiration of the young hopefuls eager to join the noble profession of teaching.
