Rational or Program Structure
The University of Papua New Guinea (UOG) through it’s business arm, Unigor Ltd commenced offering Postgraduate Diploma in Education (PGDE) and Post Vocation Teacher Education (PVTE) programs during the Christmas Vacation Period (CVP). These programs will continue this year and beyond until the demand for “qualified professional teachers” in schools is met. Appointment of “untrained/unqualified” teachers in schools is forced on by increased student numbers and more new schools. UOG has responded to specifically design and offer these programs for “untrained” teachers. The programs are offered in two sessions of 6 ½ weeks each.
Session 1 PGDE/PVTE Programs-New Candidates for 2020/2021 (Cohort 4)
Session 1 Courses begin 30th November 2020 and ends on the 13th of January 2021. Candidates travel to Goroka (UOG) Campus by 27th November 2020.
