NSS Training College, Ottapalam, has drawn attention of the entire State with its humanitarian activities adopted for the uplift of the poor.

The college runs a programme under which it constructs houses for the homeless in Palakkad. The college has so far constructed two houses, each at a cost of Rs 75,000. The houses have already been handed over to the families.

The third house will be constructed during the next academic year and the most deserving family will be selected soon, say college authorities. The contribution of the municipality for each house is Rs 30,000. When Palakkad district had no training college and degree-holders were scurrying for seats in training colleges in other districts, the Nair Service Society (NSS) came to the forefront and established a training college in Ottapalam.

During its 46-year growth, this college has become the biggest training college in Kerala, accommodating 300 BEd students and 10 MEd students.

The college, which is affiliated to the University of Calicut, has 23 teachers including college principal and nine non-teaching staff.

In approval of its superb performance, the NAAC gave B-plus grade accreditation to the college in 2005.
