Message from the Dean

Dean of the Faculty of Education - Prof Chika Sehoole

Welcome to the University of Pretoria, and thanks for choosing UP! The Faculty of Education is set in its own beautiful campus and surroundings at UP’s Groenkloof Campus, a stone’s throw away from the Hatfield Campus. Our campus gives you access to some of the best infrastructure, libraries, laboratories, sports facilities and lecturers, which all help to prepare our students for future work opportunities in South Africa and beyond.

Our professional programmes in education are relevant and internationally recognised and accredited. We produce competent teachers of a high calibre with an excellent, in-depth knowledge of their subject fields.

You will be among the best teachers because you’ll be part of THE UP WAY of life. This means that you will receive a very high quality of teaching and learning support which will make you a creative and innovative thinker. Our training also equips our students with digital literacies for the 21st century. You will be able to have a positive impact in society by shaping and developing young minds.

We’ve got all the systems in place to help you to graduate on time and join the world beyond university with all the skills you need to get your first job or start your own business.

As a teacher, you will live THE UP WAY because you will understand the value of being caring, kind and respectful to everyone. You’ll also live THE UP WAY because you’ll learn to be adaptable, creative and confident, because the world’s best teachers need to inspire these qualities in their learners.

So, Choose UP, and we hope to see you next year!
