The Faculty of Education is one of the Faculties in the University. It is sometimes referred to as the â€˜Motherâ€™ Faculty because of the central role it plays in professional training of Teachers and Educationists. A part from training Teachers and Tutors, the Faculty trains professionals in the areas of Development Studies and Guidance and Counseling.
The Faculty offers courses in professional subjects at two levels. First all students who are training as teachers for pre-primary, primary, secondary schools and Teacherâ€™s Collegeâ€™s, take core â€˜Professional Studies coursesâ€™ from this Faculty. Secondly educational subjects like Foundations of Education, Psychology and Educational Administration are offered as electives for in-depth study and research to students in sister Faculties within the University.
