Objectives of the P.G.D.E. (DLS) Programmes

The National Policy on Education prescribes that the NCE Certificate shall be the minimum qualification for all teachers in our schools.

However, for University or Polytechnic graduates who found themselves in the teaching profession but cannot go back for the NCE, there has to be a POSTGRADUATE qualification in EDUCATION that will prepare them to be professional educators.

The PGDE by Distant Learning has therefore come to serve as one of the most cost-effective strategies for transforming non-professional graduate Teachers into full professional educators.
