Course programme

The very first and pioneering offshoot of Sadhana Education Society in July 1962 was 'The Sadhana School of Educational Research and Training'. In 1970, it was renamed as 'The Sadhana School of Education'. The college was once again renamed to 'Smt. Kapila Khandvala College of Education' in 1972. This was done to honor and commemorate the memory of Smt. Kapila Khandvala, a pivotal personality and the guiding spirit who generated growth and expansion in all its permissible magnitude.

We were fortunate that from the beginning we were led by educationists like Smt. Kapila Khandvala and Dr. Madhuriben Shah. Dr. Jyotiben Trivedi, Ex-Vice Chancellor of SNDT Women's University and an educationist of all India repute, is our present Chairperson.

The College has had a legacy of very dedicated and well-known educationists as Principals since its inception. Dr. N. N. Shukla, an experienced research scholar in the field of education, was the founder principal. He was followed by Prof. M. Y. Bhide, renowned educationist. Dr. R. N Patel succeeded Prof. Bhide and raised the college further amongst educational institutions during his tenure of 15 years as Principal. He did so by his deep understanding of educational problems and sound administrative ability.

Dr P.N Chavda, the next principal, was student of the same college and joined the institution as a Teacher Educator. He later took charge as the head of the college and was at the helm of affairs of the institution for 15 long years. Dr. Chavda strived to give further boost to the college by promoting innovative programs and projects. He retired on 31st July 2006 after serving the college and the field of education for a total of 34 illustrious years.

Presently, the college is taking new strides under the leadership of Principal, Dr. Vandana Maheshwari. She joined this institution in 1988 in the position of Lecturer in Education. She was the senior most staff member of the college and has been leading the institution since November, 2006. Dr. Maheshwari believes in continuous innovations to keep pace with the changing scenario in the world of education. Her enthusiasm and zest for excellence is emulated by the staff and students of the college.

The college is affiliated to the University of Mumbai. It conducts courses leading to the B. Ed. and Ph.D. The college is also University of Mumbai centre for M. A in Education. It is also Yashwantrao Chavan Maharashtra Open University (YCMOU) centre for M. Phil.

It is a Gujarati Linguistic Minority College. It has recognition from NCTE {National Council of Teacher Education). The University of Mumbai has placed the college in category 'A' which means academically and administratively sound institution. The college has been accredited with 'A' Grade by NAAC.
