Popularly called the Sandwich programme, it is a part-time programme specifically designed for teachers with a background in education (NCE) to obtain a degree. That is why all programmes of the IOE are education programmes. Lectures usually hold when students of secondary and primary schools are on long vacation (so that they will have the space to attend without it affecting their jobs as teachers).
