Our Institution, Government College of Teacher Education, Thalassery, was named as “Government Training College, Tellicherry,” when it was established in September 1957. The institution is situated in the heart of the Thalassery Town, in between the old Bus Stand and the Municipal Stadium. Our College has passed several milestones before it attained present stature as College of Teacher Education. On the 1st September of 1862, (Late) Captain Edward Breppen, at Master Attendant of Tellicherry Port gave birth to an educational institution in Tellicherry town “to give the boys of all castes, creeds and colour a sound English education”, and he left an endowment of Rs.8,900 for opening of the free school. In 1866, this institution was upgraded and amalgamated with Basal German Mission Brennen English School (B G M Brennen English School). Within two years ie, in 1868, the school was again upgraded to a High School. However in 1872, the institution was taken over by the then Government. The decision was taken by the Governor of Madras as the Basal Mission was not able to manage the institution. Till 1883 it was a district school under the management of Government. In 1884, the school was transferred to Tellicherry Municipality on the basis of the Government policy.
During the year of 1890, this full fiedged High School was converted to a Second Grade College known as “Government Brennen College, Tellicherry”. The college has functioned in this building for a long period. When the Brennen College was shifted to the present campus at Dharmadam in 1957, Government Training College was established in its place at Tellicherry. Since June 1958, the Training College is housed in this old Government Brennen College buildings. The Training College was formally inaugurated by Dr. B Ramakrishna Rao, the then Governor of Kerala on 18th September 1957. This institution is situated in 1.52 acres of its own land since June 1958. The Government Brennen Higher Secondary School the institution which is now situated in the college premises is the old Model High School. A High School, known as ‘Model School’ was attached with every Training College during that period. So, this school was upgraded and shifted from Chirakkara to this college premises for the smooth functioning of the Training College. Later, it was again upgraded and renamed as ‘Govt. Brennen Higher Secondary School’.
