Diploma in Education (Technical/Applied) Part-time


The Diploma in Education (Technical and Applied) is a one-year day-release programme for graduates who have completed an undergraduate degree in a technical or applied discipline and wish to train as teachers at the secondary and tertiary levels.


The programme provides studies in curriculum, the application of pedagogy and androgogy to the teaching of technical and applied disciplines and the application of psychological principles to the teaching/learning situation. Students also undertake supervised teaching practice in their discipline at their respective educational institutions.


The programme seeks to promote the self-education of teachers through the process of stimulating their understanding of their subject discipline in relation to the demands of teaching. While the course provides a sound intellectual and practical foundation for a career in education, it maintains a balance between professional studies, the development of professional skills, and teachers’ overall growth as professionals.
