Kyambogo introduces Degree for primary teachers in PTC centers

All primary teachers seeking to advance their studies to a Bachelor’s degree in education will no longer have to come to Kampala as Kyambogo University has established study centers at nine Primary Teachers’ Colleges (PTCs) .

The program benefits only those teachers seeking to acquire a Bachelor of Education in Primary Education or a Bachelor of Education in Special Needs Education External degree. The program is set to start of earlier  this year.

While launching the program at Jinja Primary Teachers’ College Wanyange at the weekend, Kyambogo Vice Chancellor, Prof Eli Katunguka, said the decision was triggered by the high demand by primary teachers to extend the Bachelor’s degree program of primary education to upcountry centers.

Currently, all primary teachers, who have been seeking further education have been going to Kyambogo University during school holidays for three years until completion of the course.

Prof Katunguka explained that among other things, Kyambogo University will only provide technical assistance in terms of coordination, teaching staff and teaching material at the PTCs but all fees will be paid to the university account.

“One of our mandates as a university is to improve the country’s education by making it accessible to everyone. By opening these new centres, our teachers will acquire more skills especially in education management hence advancing their career,” he said.
