INTRODUCTION

The Primary Degree is a four year programme that offers challenging and engaging courses of study to those intending to offer their skills to the learners at a basic level of education where foundation concepts of learning and abilities are taught. This is a critical level and the candidates gain competencies to function in both the private and public environment.

It is a level where children cultivate life-long skills, hence the students are expected to influence positive change within classrooms and communities. The programme targets the individual who is passionate about children and education, who is assured of a fulfilling career in the exciting world of primary education.

The Primary Degree is relevant to our country as it rests on the very basic fundamentals of education that any citizen should acquire before progressing to any education level. The very basic skills attained at primary level form a bedrock of knowledge and values that are transferable, and individuals continually build on them to succeed in later educational levels. The program equips student teachers with instructing/facilitating skills in various subjects to the benefit of the learners.  

The target group includes pre-service and in-serve teachers with certificates and/or diplomas requiring the augmentation of their knowledge. Armed with the qualification, a student can progress on to a Masters in Primary Education.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

This course is targeted at individuals who have matriculated from secondary schools or who have previously completed diplomas or degrees in other disciplines.
