“Green hills stretching on the north, a river is winding down its east.” In this picturesque setting of Neijiang - a well-known historical and cultural city, and “the land of calligraphy and painting” - a higher education institution of teacher training full of vigor and vitality was born. This is Neijiang Teachers College.
As a college of four-year schooling for teachers’ training under the supervision of Sichuan Province, Neijiang Teachers College was founded in March 2000 with the approval of Sichuan People’s Government and the State Ministry of Education by integrating the former Neijiang Teachers College and Neijiang College of Education, which contained the incorporated Neijiang Art and PE Normal School. Since the founding of the college, it has brought into full play the advantages of the former three schools in running teacher colleges in the past 48 years.

The college enrolls students from 25 provinces and cities such as Sichuan, Chongqing, Hunan, Hubei, Jiangxi, Guangxi, Ningxia, Shaanxi, Gansu, Shanxi, Liaoning and Zhejiang, which cover a wide range of China. After 2003, the yearly employment of our graduates before graduation reaches above 92%.
