College of Teacher Education


The College of Teacher Education started on December 17, 1993 when the   Commission of Higher Education Cordillera Administrative Region (CHED CAR) issued Permit Number  GP NO. 10 HED-38 s. 1993, to offer the Bachelor in Secondary Education (Major in English, History, Mathematics), and in November 18, 1998, Recognition Number GR. NO. 278 s. 1998 was granted by the same agency.  In March 19, 1994, Permit Number HED-05 s. 1994 was issued by CHED CAR to offer the Bachelor in Elementary Education, and in August 7, 1996, Recognition Number  GR. NO. 18, s. 1996 was granted by CHED CAR.

In its quest for excellence, the Bachelor in Elementary Education (BEEd), and Bachelor of Secondary Education (BSEd) were awarded Level 1 Applicant Status by the Philippine Association of Colleges and Universities Commission on Accreditation (PACUCOA) in August 2004. This is the department’s first step  towards excellence. Also,  in the year 2006, the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) introduced the Institutional Quality Assurance Monitoring and Evaluation (IQUAME) program.  IQUAME is CHED’s version of the accreditation and covers the whole institution.  CCDC applied for the IQUAME and was visited during the second semester of 2007. 

Carrying its  goal in achieving excellence,  the department  also never failed to carry out its mission to equip graduates with the necessary knowledge, skills, values, positive attitudes and in order to be committed to the holistic development of children in their formative years from preschool to the completion of their basic education.

Further, the department is bracing itself to the challenges of the new normal  mode of education and is still  working towards  upholding its  goal  to develop future educators who  possess the 21st century  skills  that are  at par with the  global standards of a teacher.
