NWU Education, Teacher Education at the North-West University has had a proud history since 1919, and the Faculty of Education is now the largest provider of contact and open distance learning in South Africa. The fact that so many teachers choose to upgrade their professional qualifications with us, and that so many prospective students apply for entry to the BEd and our other programmes says something. We think it says something about…
- the quality of the work done in our programmes (grounded, professional, critical and academic);
- the attention paid to students by our staff (dedicated, caring, professional academics and administrators);
- the quality of student life and development offered by the faculty itself (social, sport, integrated development and community engagement);
- the great reputation enjoyed by our students and graduate teachers who are commended to us by schools throughout the country.
The Dean’s Welcome
Students, parents, and colleague visitors to the Faculty webpage. Welcome! The Faculty is committed to providing a high quality and exciting professional education that responds to our context both nationally and globally. The Faculty engages in teaching, research and community involvement and through these activities aims to meet the intellectual and skills needs of the education and training sector in Southern Africa, both in terms of the diversity of education contexts in South Africa, and in terms of a quality education.
We strive to play a pivotal role in promoting a dynamic intellectual culture in the education sector, characterized by, for example, the use and application of the latest technology and teaching principles, the development and support of lifelong learners, and the cultivation and transfer of new knowledge in the context of education in southern Africa.
