Description

Adeniran Ogunsanya College of Education evolved as one of the bye-products of missionary education and the implementation of series of recommendations of different Education Commissions between 1900 and 1960. Within this period, Lagos as the capital of Nigeria, the base of the British Colonial masters and the hub of viable economic activities, witnessed an unprecedented population increase. The unexpected population increase was responded to by the number of mission schools as well as government schools that sprang up in Lagos during that period. The emergence of those competing schools called for the recruitment of qualified teachers. Unfortunately, there was a large chunk of untrained teachers working in Lagos during that particular period. Consequently, the idea of establishing a centre where unqualified teachers’ professional skills could be upgraded was muted alongside the training of craftsmen who could help teach practical skills to pupils. Hence, by 1958, a Grade III teacher training College in the name of Lagos Day Training College, with a population of about ninety students was established. Within the first decade of its existence, it became a Government Teacher Training College and was charged with the responsibility of producing Grade II teachers. The early 1970s saw the formulation of educational policies and propositions which positively changed the fortune of the College and have resultantly given her opportunities to undergo significant transformation both in focus and structure over the past five decades. The transformation has since taken the College through an upward mobility from Grade III teachers’ College to Grade II and later to one that trains teachers for the award of Nigeria Certificate in Education. The College at present serves as an affiliate College of the Ekiti State University, Ado-Ekiti awarding first degrees. This upward mobility can be attributed to the ever increasing demands for teachers, population explosion among those seeking admission into the College programmes, and the corresponding increase in the high quality of human resources needed for training the students. Adeniran Ogunsanya College of Education, formerly known as Lagos State College of Education, moved to its present and permanent site at Oto/Ijanikin in 1982 in response to the problem of grossly inadequate land space in relation to the demands for the development of modern infrastructural facilities and increasing population at its Surulere site. After a period of rapid growth, enrolments in the College have reached an all-time high level. The Edict establishing the College emphasizes the importance of producing well qualified teachers in education and such related studies. In pursuance of this goal, it was expressed that if past findings (Oto/Ijanikin Study Group, 1998) which revealed a very high degree of consciousness among ex-students for professional development (post-NCE) are considered, the introduction of degree programmes run by the College would go a long way to further enhance the realization of the College set goals and objectives. This was also in response to the ever increasing demand for more qualified graduate teachers in the Lagos State School system. This could be confirmed by the various staff development programmes being initiated for teachers and other civil servants in the state. Hence, a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed on the 13th August 1999 between the College and the then Ondo State University, Ado-Ekiti, now Ekiti State University, Ado-Ekiti after an approval of the University Senate. This MOU which was reviewed and approved on the 20th of June 2006 prescribes certain roles for both the University and the College for easy operation of the Programme. With the approval of the National Universities Commission (NUC), in the year 2009, the College commenced the running of Full Time undergraduate programmes in Education courses in 2010 also in affiliation with the Ekiti State University, Ado-Ekiti. Over the years, the College has witnessed a turbulent environment as a teacher training institute in the course of its transformation from one phase to another. We may be compelled to argue that the fascinating history of movement of the College through different phases would have helped in the emergence of a tradition that would challenge the only monolithic sub-culture that tends to dwarf other sub-cultures in the teaching profession.
