The last edition of the Commission’s Annual Report was published in 2019. The 2020 Annual Report was not published, due largely to the emergence of COVID- 19 Pandemic that ravaged the entire world. However, the current Management considered it worthwhile to publish the 2021 Annual Report for members of the public to be acquainted with activities carried out by the Commission during the 2021 fiscal year. This is in line with statutory requirements for various organs of government to give accounts of their activities in the previous year. Supervising teacher education at the sub-degree level is one of the primary duties of the Commission. However, the teaching and teacher education supervision have been methodically traditional in execution, that is, devoid of electronics (online) application. During the 2020, COVID-19 there was threat need for online activities in teaching and learning; and so, the paradigm in learning and mode of its delivery changed in favour of online application. Majority of NCE awarding institutions were taken by surprise due to insufficient equipment and facilities for online course deliveries. In addition, College of Education sub-sector during the 2021 fiscal year faced other serious challenges such as; low enrolment of candidates into the institutions, attrition of qualified personnel, insufficient funding, societal perception of a teacher as poor and lacking, proliferation of illegal NCE-awarding institutions and rise in conversion of Colleges of Education into Universities without laid down parameters among others. However, it is pertinent to state that despite these challenges; the Commission continued to forge ahead recording numerous achievements in different areas. There was a phenomenal growth in the number of NCE awarding institutions in the country both at Federal, State and Private levels. Resource assessment visits were paid to proposed Colleges and those found worthy were granted provisional approval. Accreditation or re-accreditation of programmes in various institutions was carried out during the 2021 fiscal year. The Commission also thrived in Research and Development (R&D) leading to world standard and reputable publications. Download complete content
