The 46 public Colleges of Education in the country adopted the double-track system in January 2021 to encompass enrolment.
It would be recalled that the Colleges traditionally operate a three-year diploma program where the final years leave campus for one year of teaching practice. This gives a lot of classroom and dormitory spaces at the Colleges.
However, with the advent of the 4-year degree program by this government, all the levels; 100, 200, 300, and 400 were to be on campus.
This was not feasible due to inadequate infrastructure at the various colleges. This compelled the inception of the double track.
Currently, the fourth and third-year students are on campus relishing their right to education.
However, the level 200s who did their first six(6) weeks from 14th July to 2nd September are expected to resume for the second phase on October 16th, 2022.
Due to this, Third-year students are expected to break on the 14th of October to end the first phase of their second-semester academic activities.
The Fourth years would be completing their 4-year bachelor’s program on 28th October, 2022.
The level 300 students would then return on 30th October for their second phase.
