The Vice Chancellor, Dean, Programme Leaders and Course Coordinators welcome your interest in studying at the National Open University School of Education. The School prepares professional teachers/leaders in teacher education, and researchers, through the distance-learning programme. The instructional methodology for distance learning is conducted through specially designed packaged materials including radio, television broadcast CDROM, Internet complimented by face-to-face interaction. Network of study centres have been established to provide excellent and quality student oriented learning and support services. In due course, the National Open University students will access all library and informa- tion materials through the National VIrtual Library Project that will soon be fully launched. So there will be no barrier to becoming a skilled "teacher".
