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 to facilitate learning in schools. The faculty also places a strong emphasis on in-service teacher education, to build capacity, equip teachers in priority areas and upgrade the qualifications of under-qualified teachers. We are committed to the development of competent leaders in education who can operate in diverse environments, through the provision of opportunities for well-qualified education professionals to reflect on and innovate their practice.
