The diploma in Education (Primary) programme at Egerton University is designed to produce teachers with an in-depth understanding of the subject matter, sound professional skills and ability to adapt to the ever-changing Educational needs in Kenya. Its focus is on quality instruction and management of primary schools.
This two year course leading to Diploma in Primary Education from Egerton University is aimed at improving the competency of primary school teachers in instruction and managerial skills which is presently largely lacking in public schools.
In addition, there is a pool of trained teachers with P1 certificates who do not meet the present minimum requirement for entry into B.Ed primary programme at Egerton University. The programme will therefore provide a suitable bridge for entry into B.Ed primary and further training.
