It has been always our long desire to be the leading promoters of Christian Education in Africa since most of the institutions that engage in higher education are secular. They focus on making profits and not transforming society through integrating faith in teaching and learning. This led to many evils like corruption, lack of integrity, drug abuse and other vices that are rampant in the world.
WCIU School of Education and Vocational Studies seek to provide “A Complete Education for A complete person “. This means that we integrate Christian values in very body of knowledge we give our prospective students. Our major focus is providing a holistic curriculum to students.
The already established Church projects too lack the human resource that is well grounded in Christian Education and we believe this faculty will close this gap and produce professionals with Christian values and integrity to manage these projects.
The most affected projects are the Christian Schools that nurture children who need to be groomed in Christian values by staffs that confess Christ as their Lord and savior.
This faculty is also intended to empower our church pastors with professional skills that can enable them get jobs to sustain their families since this calling is not lucrative profession.
Vocational studies are merged with faculty of education because we want to instill practical skills to the students so that they can create jobs after and before graduation. This is in line with what the government is emphasizing now of Skilling the human resource in Uganda.
