He listed the progammes available at the institute as Pivotal Teacher Training, Nigeria Certificate in Education (NCE), Advanced Diploma in Education, Bachelor's Degree in Science and Education, and Post Graduate Diploma in Education (PGDE).

"The NCE programme is accredited by the National Commission for Colleges of Education (NCCE) while the Bachelor's Degree programmes are affiliated to the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN),’’ he said.

The director-general advised students to ensure they obtained the required knowledge that would improve their teaching skills and warned against activities that would bring the institute into disrepute.
