Our Programmes

Ngwane Teacher's College offers two teacher training programmes; Primary Teachers’ Diploma and Diploma in Early Childhood Care & Education.

The Primary Teachers’ Diploma is a three year programme that prepares trainees to teach all subjects taught at primary school level, i.e. Grade 1 to 7. Hence, trainees are taught subject content for all subjects taught at primary school level. During their second and third year of their study, they are given six weeks of supervised teaching practice in primary schools around the country.  

The goal of the Diploma in Early Childhood Care & Education is to prepare students to work with children from zero through age 8. Students learn about curriculum, guidance and standards for working with young children. This program helps prepare students for a rewarding career nurturing the growth and development of young children. During their second and third year of their study, they are given six weeks of supervised teaching practice in early childhood care schools around the country.


By training to teach at primary level, you will have an extraordinary impact during some of the most crucial years of a child’s development. Primary school and ECCE educators can set children up to succeed from the start, making sure that they all have access to a brilliant education. Ngwane Teacher’s College offers experienced academic staff in the various subject areas who are committed to equipping teacher trainees with the skills they need to effectively teach learners in the schools, under diverse social and academic challenges of the dynamic society.
