The major academic programmes of the College are geared towards the training of students for the Award of the Nigeria Certificate in Education (NCE). Admissions into the programmes are either through direct entry for the three year NCE programme (full time), or one year preliminary NCE course. A third dimension of the academic programme is the Primary Education Part-Time N.C.E course, which runs for four years, during Primary School vacation.
The courses offered in the College are grouped into six Schools, namely: Education, Arts and Social Sciences, Vocational and Technical Education, Sciences, Business Education, Languages and School of Primary and Continuing Education. Every student is however required to take the courses in Education and General Studies to graduate.
