Faculty of Education: Vision and Mission

Faculty of Education


  • A faculty that affirms the dignity of its students, its staff and the community with which it engages, and draws on their diversity as a source of strength.
  • A faculty that is recognised nationally and internationally for its scholarship and for its contextualised understanding of education.
  • A faculty that visibly contributes to the social transformation of the broader society.


The faculty will:

  • Engage in the development of pre-service and in-service teachers who are characterised by a strong theoretical grounding, relevant skills and a commitment to serve the community
  • Develop its capacity by strengthening the links between its teaching, research and community engagement
  • Enable access in ways that overcome the barriers posed by social inequality
