The teachers’ training programme of pre-independence period in general could be classified into three categories: training of primary and middle school teachers, training of Anglo-Vernacular teachers for Secondary English schools and training of vernacular teachers. Existence of separate types of training institutions had been found for these three types of training.  The development of vernacular teachers’ training in the various provinces of British India during the first half of twentieth century (1900-19470 is discussed in the present paper from a historical point of view.
