For Departments and Programmes

An institution training teachers or a Ministry of Education may apply to the JBTE to accredit departments or programmes that they offer or intend offering. In such cases, the following shall be observed: 
  • The college shall establish the broad parameters of the programme in terms of purpose, objectives, level of competence to be achieved, curriculum, type of teachers to be recruited and the particular need that is being addressed in the educational system.
  • The principal shall provide proof of the college's ability to mount the programme in terms of staff, physical facilities, finances and approval of its Board. 

  • Sole authority shall be remitted to the JBTE to undertake the assessment of the achievement of students in the programme in terms of the criteria previously established. 

  • Where the conditions outlined have been satisfied, there shall be a notation in attesting to the fact that the programme has been accredited by the JBTE. 

  • Institutions offering programme(s) recognized by the JBTE can have their subject departments or their teacher-education programmes accredited by the JBTE. Where a subject department or programme receives such accreditation, it shall be for a period of three years in the first instance. On re-accreditation, this period may be extended to five years.
