Will there be a Change of Programme After Payment of Fees?

It is highly impossible to change your programme of study at the college of education. In previous academic years, some colleges gave the opportunity to trainees to change their programmes before Level 200.

It is sometimes written on the admission letter that, “there won’t be change of programme”.

At our end here, we say that there won’t be a change of programme.

How Many Courses Will Level 100 Students Offer in a Semester of the 2023/2024 Academic Year?

Each semester of Level 100, teacher trainees will offer at least six (6) courses and the maximum will be eight (8) depending on the affiliated university.

At level 100, teacher trainees will be in groups and study general courses regardless of the programme you are to offer. But other colleges from level 100, would sort students according to their programmes to study general courses.

When Will Teacher Trainees Offer Programme-Related Courses?

After successfully completing all level 100 courses, all teacher trainees will be regrouped according to programmes of study. But if in Level 100 they are sorted according to their programmes, there is no need for regrouping.

Thus, programme-related courses will commence in the first semester of level 200.

The Number of Courses to Offer in a Semester

Starting from the first semester of level 200, teacher trainees will offer a minimum of six (6) courses and a maximum courses of eight (8) for JHS programmes.

But in the case of PRIMARY and EARLY GRADE Programmes, it may be more than that depending on the affiliated university.

Core and Elective Courses in Colleges of Education

Depending on the affiliated university, there would be a minimum of two (2) and a maximum of four (4) core courses for teacher trainees each semester. Some colleges will offer two (2) while others will offer (4).

There would be four (4) elective courses to study each semester for the JHS programme as this may vary for other programmes.

For example, if you are to offer Mathematics and ICT as a programme, there would be two courses from both Mathematics and ICT. Likewise Mathematics and Science, History and Social Studies, Engish and RME etc whatever combination you have.

What is Course Credit Hour in Colleges of Education?

Credit hours in the college of education simply means the duration/time assigned to a particular course to last once its session starts. Let’s say a period. The maximum credit hour of a course last 2 hours and the minimum is one hour.

Each course has three (3) credit hours in a week. Thus, two (2) and one (1) credit hours separately.

Supported Teaching in School (STS)

This is a programme part of the 4-year B.Ed Programme that is observed at least six (6) times every semester. Teacher trainees will be assigned to nearby schools according to their programmes of study.

They would be required to observe how the teaching profession is thereby taking notes on classroom management, inclusion, lesson presentations, teachers’ professional traits and many more.

Students will record their observations or findings in Student Reflective Journals (SRJ) and at the end of the course, they will write a report.
