A programme of study is the approved curriculum leading to a specified and named award of the Nigeria Certificate as followed by an individual student. The programme may be identical with a course or may be one of a number of standard routes within a larger course programme. The College Of Education will admit students to its courses on a full-time, part-time, mixed-mode or distance learning basis as appropriate. All programmes of study will conform to the Institution’s regulations and requirements as may be accredited by the National Commission for Colleges of Education (NCCE).
At present, we are a growing community of about 1500 students, but which is intended to grow quite rapidly. The Kogi State College Of Education (Tech) has been constituted to achieve the status of Centre of Excellence in the very near future.
In particular, you will experience two important aspects of our modern education. Firstly, there is much more emphasis on ‘student centered learning’. This means that you will take a highly active part in your own learning and will not be a passive body to which information is fed, only to be quickly forgotten. It is expected that this will facilitate much better understanding of the topics involved and lead you to be able to develop your own ideas.
Secondly, you will see that there is a major shift in the assessment regime. The over-reliance on traditional examinations has been replaced with a mixture ofcontinuous assessment and examinations, where in many cases modules only use continuous assessment. The overall aim of the innovative methods used in this College is to prepare you for life-long learning and to be able to stand on your feet as an entrepreneur with all confidence at the end of your course.
