History

Education industry has so developed in Nigeria that exiting higher institutions seem not able to cope with the demands for higher education, especially the production of teachers suited to the National Universal Basic Education (UBE) programme of the Federal Government of Nigeria.

In view of this compelling need, and in pursuance of the objectives of the National Policy on Education targeted to the training of teachers suited to the UBE programme, the “The College of Education, Nsukka’ (TCEN) was established.

The NCE programme being a major sector of Teacher Education, the mission of TCEN aims at producing teachers with high personal and professional discipline and integrity, teachers who are dedicated, with appropriate knowledge, skills and attitude that would facilitate easy achievement of the national goals spelt out above. This is all the more important when we not the government’s decision that NCE shall ultimately be the minimum entry qualification into the teaching profession in Nigeria.

The teacher is the kingpin of quality in education. Since education has become the primary tool for the overall development of society, Teacher Education has to occupy a position of pre-eminence in the planning and organization of the modern society. This in turn demands that the Nigerian people and the government make both Teaching and Teacher Education a very attractive professional pursuit. Expectedly, the mission of teacher Education I Nigeria should, among others, include:
