Anglican Church To Establish College Of Education In Enugu

The Diocese of Enugu North (Anglican Communion) has set up committee for the establishment of College of Education to meet educational manpower needs in Enugu State.

Inaugurating the 21-man committee on Monday, Rt. Rev. Sosthenes Eze, the Bishop of Diocese, said that the higher education committee was set up ahead of the anticipated return of missionary schools by the Enugu State Government.

According to the bishop, the committee is being inaugurated in view of the state government's proposed return of schools to missionaries, who are the initial owners after 50 years.

Eze noted that the need for the committee to work to establish a College of Education was due to the dire need of staffing and training/retraining of teachers as well as maintaining enviable educational standards and quality teaching.

He said that the terms of reference of the committee included planning an institution of higher learning that will offer NCE and Degree Certificates in Education and other allied courses.

“Negotiate with reputable University for possible affiliation. Ensure proper registration and licensing of the institution.

“See to the take off of the school in September 2022 and assist the Diocese raise funds. Find and locate a temporary take off site for the school among others,” he said.

 The bishop announced Prof. Gab Agu, as the Chairman of the Committee; Ven. Prof. M.C. Ubesie, as the Vice Chairman and Chief Sheddy Ene as Secretary.

In his acceptance speech, Prof. Agu said that the committee would carry out its assignment with all commitment and sense of duty.

“I am sure we will deliver on this project and be able to start the pilot scheme for the College of Education by the end of August.

“With adequate funding support from the Diocese, I believe that registration, accreditation of the institution and its full take off will be in September 2022,” he assured.
