However, the programmes provided collaboration with Pre – School Teacher Training in Countries South of the Sahara, coordinated by Queen Maud’s University College of Early Childhood Education, Trondheim, Norway. Sadly both the government’s high set entry requirements and the people’s stigma over Early Childhood profession the planned programs could not thrive as the students abundant the classes.

No. TLF/005 to offer training in Teaching and Learning Facilitation programs in Early Childhood up to Ordinary Diploma in NTA level 6 effective 30th August, 2013.
