Office of the Provost
On behalf of the Emmanuel Alayande College of Education, Oyo, Nigeria; I welcome you to our Official Website.
Emmanuel Alayande College of Education, Oyo, has a complex heritage reflecting its transition from a strictly religious institution to the status of a public College of Education.
The St. Andrew's College, Oyo(now Emmanuel Alayande College of Education, Oyo) was established as a Grade II Teacher’s College by the Church Missionary Society (C.M.S.) in 1896 and it ranked as the oldest Teachers' Training College in Nigeria. In 1976, the clamour for its upgrading to an NCE awarding institution began. The Oyo State Government acceded to this request in October 1980 by upgrading the College to a campus of the then Oyo State College of Education, Ilesa. In March 1983, the supervision of the College was transferred to the Oyo State College of Education, Ila Orangun. The College gained full autonomy as a full-fledged College of Education on 1st October, 1985.
The transformation from a Teachers’ Grade II awarding institution to a Nigeria Certificate in Education awarding institution is an undeniable fact that the institution has been responding to the needs of the society and time. It is a scientific speculation that in order to meet the educational challenges of 21st century, the College should continue in the progressive transformation as an education institution.
At the moment, the College has a campus-wide wireless Intranet facility and efficient access to the Internet.
As you navigate this website, you will be able to see for yourself the beauty of our College campus, the best and most modern among the Colleges of Education in Nigeria.
