The origin of the Faculty of Education pre-dates the university itself. The National Institute of Education was established in 1973 under the Federal Ministry of Education. It became part of the university in June, 1975 as Institute of Education in the Faculty of Social Sciences. The progressively extending functions of the Institute brought the needs for structural change and in 1984 it got the status of Faculty of Education. B.Ed (4 years) program's focus on education and training of prospective teachers grows out of a profound belief in the transformative power of education. Our mission is to promote the development of highly qualified and efficient teaching professionals who are prepared to creatively contribute to the social, cultural, and educational development of a globally oriented, pluralistic, and diverse society. B.Ed (4 years) program will be a composite program blending Core Courses, Foundation Courses, Professional Courses, and Specialization Courses. B.Ed-SLM will not only provide a direction to general education but will also ensure that only those who intend to opt for teaching as a profession will join the program. It is a matter of fact that it requires extraordinary knowledge, commitment and skill to become effective leaders in education. Diversity and equity wove into course work and its practical implementation so that leaders and managers can learn to lead, manage and supervise schools with enriched learning environment for all learners. It will enable the learners/ future leaders to apply their knowledge and skills in real classroom and school situation more effectively. The teachers trained through new program will be able to plan and manage school at Secondary/Higher Secondary Level.
