Bachelor of Education – Secondary

The School of Education, Technical and Vocational Education (SETVE) of Uganda Technology and Management University recognizes the fact that teachers, regardless of their teaching subjects, are supposed to possess generic competence derived from their training. It is therefore the duty of this School to provide the trainees with the basic as well as advanced theoretical and practical knowledge of their respective specialization subjects, and expose them to better awareness of the various factors that influence (or have influenced) modern approaches to teaching.

The School has designed the Bachelor of Education Degree to address the emerging trends in Education. It is designed in response to the current demands for strong first degrees in terms of academic and professional content to enable the graduates to compete competently in the ever-thinning world market. The programme aims at producing professional teachers who are specialized and competent instructors rich in content and professional knowledge. It takes into account the fact that recent global developments put heavy demands on the qualifications and continue to form a growing need for highly qualified people to teach and serve in their subject areas of specialization.
