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.
Consistent with its historic antecedents, Emmanuel Alayande College of Education, Oyo is dedicated to the preparation of highly qualified professionals to serve as teachers, administrators, supervisors, counsellors, and other professionals in educational settings, communities, industries and human service agencies.
