Second Year For Teacher Capacity Development Students Commence Their First Semester

Three hundred and twenty seven returning Teacher Capacity Development (TCD) students commenced their second year first semester on the 11th of April 2022.

The current group is stationed at the Mt Darwin Road Campus and is using the Faculty of Science Education (FSE) as their learning base with the semester scheduled to run from 11 to 29 April 2022.

The three-year degree programmes funded by UNICEF focus on four main science subjects, namely physics, mathematics, chemistry and biology. The current cohort of student teachers commenced the programmes in March 2021 and is the second group to be registered at the University. However, they took a break in September 2021 due to the rise in COVID-19 cases and resumed this January to complete the first year of their three-year degree programme.

BUSE is internationally renowned for its science education programmes. It was founded as a solution to the shortage of science educators in the nation but has since grown its influence in the region and beyond.
