It aspires to develop teachers for primary, secondary and tertiary levels of education and other educational professionals and practitioners with world class standards and skills of the 21st century. This desire is achieved though providing quality pre-service education programmes that produce effective teachers with appropriate and adequate knowledge, skills, passion and proficiency, and who are globally competitive and capable of meeting and overcoming challenges of a dynamic world. The faculty has highly qualified and competent national and international world class scholars in different areas of educational specializations. FoE also fosters international collaborations, notably with VIA University College in Denmark, facilitating student exchanges, internships, scholar exchange programmes, and the sharing of curricular and instructional materials. Additionally, the Faculty has established partnerships with IBO Italia, an Italian Non-Governmental Organization engaged in international cooperation and voluntary work. Their collaborative efforts in Tanzania focus on inclusive education, particularly targeting children with disabilities. In terms of research, the Faculty is actively involved in two ongoing research projects and has contributed over 200 publications since its inception.
