Post-Graduate Diploma In Education

About the Programme

Many universities across the world have produced hundreds of degreed individuals many of whom are teaching without a teaching qualification. Some, who had no intention initially to teach, found themselves teaching as temporary teachers because they could not find the intended or preferred job. So these people continue to teach without a teaching qualification suitable for the level of education they are teaching i.e. secondary school level. They also continue to earn less than those that are qualified.

This programme is therefore intended to capture those degreed graduates from the continent who would like to teach at secondary school level in their respective countries in order to give them the required training and for those of them that are already teaching as temporary staff would have the opportunity to become full-time staff.
