The Faculty of Education is an important role player in initial teacher education and in the further development of practising teachers, particularly in the context of meeting the educational needs and addressing the priorities of education in the Eastern Cape.

The key aim of the Faculty’s pre-service teacher education is to develop student teachers who teach effectively in order to facilitate learning in schools.

The Faculty also places a strong emphasis on in-service teacher education, offering a range of programmes to build capacity, equip teachers in priority areas and upgrade the qualifications of under-qualified teachers.

In our endeavour to ensure student success, we intentionally engage with learning and teaching in a scholarly manner. We place value in reflection and action as we attempt to become agents of hope, social justice and change.

Our postgraduate programmes challenge students to examine their own classroom practices, as well as investigate broad education issues that relate to curricula, leadership and management, education policies and pedagogy.

Our Centre for the Community School (CCS) affords staff and students opportunities to work with schools and their immediate communities in order to promote meaningful and authentic engagement.

The Faculty is committed to the development of competent leaders in education who are able to operate in diverse environments, through the provision of opportunities for well-qualified education professionals to reflect on and innovate their practice.
