The goal is to produce broad-based and competent teaching professionals who will be able to function competently in the basic schools to handle both class and subject teaching at the primary and the Junior Highs schools as well exposing these teachers to classroom practices


Track 3: The One-Year Postgraduate Diploma in Education (PGDE) for Degree Holders
This is a professional programme designed for degree holders (B.A, B.Sc. M.A M.Phil etc.) who already have adequate subject matter knowledge in a specific area of discipline such as Science, English, Mathematics, Social Studies, etc. from a recognized University, but with no background in Education, and are already teaching as ‘pupil teachers’ (unprofessional teachers) in the Senior High Schools (or want to teach in the Senior High School as professional teachers).
