Welcome to Sunshine Private College (SPC) Teacher Education Department (TED). At SPC TED, we offer teacher training programmes. Currently, the department is offering two programmes namely the Bachelor of Education Primary School Honours (BEDPSH) and the Post Graduate Diploma in Education (PGDE), though we have many more to be introduced in the near future. The BEDPSH is a pre-service, four- year programme, while the PGDE is a one year programme. Details of the entry qualifications are available on the ADMISSIONS section on this website. Our
dream is to train first class teachers high in integrity, capable in pedagogy and reflective in practice using the latest technology. As SPC TED, we light the way to professional excellence. Want to become a teacher? Why wait; click here ADMISSIONS for more details.

In line with this goal, the Namibian government subsidized education heavily, resulting in increased enrolments in schools that call for a greater number of qualified teachers. This, together with the need to replace retired teachers, attrition and the demand for continuing education, requires tailored programmes that provide the desired quality teachers and an opportunity for professional development.
