- About Cross River State College Of Education
The present COE is an offshoot of the CRS School of Basic Studies, Akamkpa, which metamorphosed in 1990 into the former CRS College of Education, Akampa. This former College eventually folded up with the emergence of the Cross River University of Technology and until early 2008 served as a University campus of the Faculty of Education.
By June 2008, Cross River University Faculty of Education was relocated to Calabar with the view to re-establishing a College of Education. This materialized when the principal officers, led by Prof, A Owan Enoh, were appointed for the new College of Education, Akampa, in December 2008.
The new College was established by the CRS Edict No. 4 promulgated by his Excellency, Senator Liyel Imoke, Executive Governor of CRS. With CRUTECH, the College is now one of the 2 state-owned Tertiary Institutions that offer higher but complementary programmes. The College of Education provides the man power needs of the state in the training of highly motivated, diligent and conscientious teachers, especially in the sciences, for the Universal Basic Education (UBE) scheme in the State.
