I take this opportunity to welcome to the office of teaching practice & practicum. Teaching Practice is a key exercise for all students studying Bachelor of Education and Agricultural Education and Extension in University of Embu. The teaching practice exercise is carried out from May to August every year. The purpose of the exercise is to provide student-teacher with an opportunity to apply their pedagogical skills and knowledge acquired in the period of study. The objectives are that the student-teachers will understand their roles in teaching profession and also experience the real environment of teaching process. This helps them to learn on how to relate well with students, teachers and non-teaching staff in the schools. In addition, it gives student-teachers an opportunity to practice the art of teaching before getting to the real world of teaching profession. Further, the exercise helps the students to meet the standards of quality education in the world of teaching. It is for this reason therefore, that the University of Embu has put a lot of emphasis on teaching practice. The Teaching Practice Department has put measures to ensure that students are thoroughly prepared for the exercise. This is done in the third year of study through mentorship and induction so as to brand students in becoming professional teachers. I believe this website will provide adequate information about our office, our services and other activities.
