The colleges are Oswald Waller College of Education, Shendam in Plateau State; Pan African College of Education, Offa in Kwara State; Diamond College of Education, Aba in Abia State and Bilyaminu College of Education, Dass in Bauchi State.
Speaking while presenting accreditation certificates to the successful colleges of education over the weekend, the Executive Secretary of the National Commission for Colleges of Education (NCCE), Prof Monday Joshua, said all the newly approved colleges met minimum standards and requirements set by the commission.
He said that the approval og the new colleges is part of efforts of the federal government to increase teacher education in Nigeria.
Joshua said that the ongoing programme of accreditation of colleges of education in the country was on course, adding that 11 colleges have so far scaled the commission’s accreditation hurdle and were accordingly issued with accreditation certificates.
The NCCE boss recalled that when he assumed office one year ago as executive secretary, one of the greatest challenges in the system was that a lot of programmes in the NCE-awarding institutions were unaccredited for about a decade.
