B.Ed Primary Programme

B.Ed. Pry (Pre-service)

The Bachelor of Education (Primary) programme was launched in 1993 following a decision by the then Teacher Education Committee (TEC) to develop a programme that would prepare a group of teachers with higher academic and professional qualifications who could teach and provide the much needed instructional leadership at the primary level.

Apart from resourcing the School Based In-service Programmes (SBIP) in their own areas of specialty, they were expected to form a pool from where PTC lecturers, inspectors and primary curriculum developers would be drawn.

The programme has undergone a substantive change in recent years with a strong focus on depth of subject matter, approaches to course delivery and opportunities to develop critical and reflective abilities. The programme’s intent is clearly evident in terms of preparing competent primary school teachers.

B.Ed Pry (In-service)

This is an award bearing in-service programme for primary school teachers with Primary Teacher Certificate (PTC). It is delivered through a distance-cum-residential school (during vacation) mode. Students in this category are eligible for credit waiver through the application of Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL), the process of assessment of individual’s learning and/or experience with evidence that experience or learning has resulted in the student achieving the appropriate and clearly expressed learning outcomes (WAL, B9, 2008 p. 79).

It was launched in 1995 following a government policy to extend opportunities for continuing education to interested teachers. It is aimed not only to upgrade the professional knowledge and skills of these teachers but also improve the principles underlying the dictum – ‘Only a lighted candle can light another’. Duration of the programme is four year (eight semesters).
