CENTRE FOR PART-TIME AND EXTERNAL PROGRAMMES (CEPEP)

BACKGROUND TO THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE CENTRE

The Centre was established during the 2005/2006 session to replace the erstwhile school of Part-Time Studies. The Centre was established to train teachers on Part-Time basis in line with the National Policy on Education which among other things prescribes continuing education, to serve as a coordinating centre for all the various units of the University for quality teaching of Part-Time and External Programmes of the University, to guide the students to acquire the necessary knowledge, skills and experience equivalent to what students in Full-Time programmes normally acquire for their future use, and to prepare academic materials, in collaboration with the Colleges and departments for distribution to students for enhancement of their studies.
