The District Institutes of Education and Training (DIETs) were envisioned in the National Policy of Education, 1986, and were created by the Government of India, Ministry of Human Resource Development in the late 1980s to strengthen elementary education and support the decentralization of education to the district level. They were created through a centrally supported scheme and following the guidelines suggested in the ‘pink book' (Government of India,1989).

    District Institute of Education and Training (DIET) Thrissur is one of the First  DIETs of Kerala which began in the year 1989. It stands nestled in an idyllic locale named Ramavarmapuram in Thrissur district, the cultural capital of Kerala. It functions as a nodal agency for providing academic and resource support at the district and grassroots levels for the success of various interventions and programmes undertaken from per-primary to higher secondary level.
