The mission of the Faculty of Education is to provide quality pre-service education programmes that produce effective teachers, as well as quality professional development courses and programmes for in-service teachers. The Faculty has two Departments:

In addition to the Foundation Certificate Education, the Faculty offers a four-year Bachelor of Education programme for pre-and in-service students, a one-year Graduate Diploma in Education programme for those with a first degree who wish to gain a professional qualification for teaching and a Post Graduate Diploma in Education for those who wish to pursue further studies for a higher qualification.

The Post Graduate Diploma in Education can later staircase into a Master of Education. Current and future Science teachers also have the option of taking the Bachelor of Science (Secondary Teaching) programme in the Faculty of Science.
