The School of Education is a major academic division which supports the role of the University as the premier government-owned educational institution, solely responsible for the training of secondary school teachers in the country.
It offers programs in education to students in Papua New Guinea and the South West Pacific region through both face-to-face and distance flexible modes. Its primary focus is on education and training of teachers for the secondary schools. However, the School also provides for the training of Vocational and Technical college instructors, and Nursing College lecturers by providing both theory and practical hands-on courses in the context of developing countries, such as Papua New Guinea.
Additional courses and programs have been added to our offering over the years in response to government and clientele needs. These include undergraduate programs in Early Childhood Education, Guidance and Counseling discipline, Social development and Gender Studies, and Special and Inclusive Education. The Ministry of Higher Education; Research, Science and Technology quality assurance requirements are adhered to, to ensure quality of programs and courses are maintained.
