Global trends demand that higher education institutions have a pivotal role. They become not only key players in the production of knowledge and provision of technical solutions to economic, social and political challenges of our time, but also partners in “Triple Helix” relationships where they work with governments and industry in driving the implementation of sustainable development goals. Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) number four for Namibia stipulates the need to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education which promotes lifelong learning opportunities for all. In line with this goal, the Namibian government subsidized education heavily, resulting in increased enrollments in schools that call for a greater number of qualified teachers. This, together with the need to replace retired teachers, attrition and the demand for continuing education, requires tailored programmes that provide the desired quality teachers and an opportunity for professional development.

Sunshine Private College Teacher Education Department acknowledges the importance of education, especially teacher training. The Teacher Education Department attests to this role it is playing through the formulation of educational programmes to meet this need. Thus, Sunshine Private College has developed the Bachelor of Education primary school honors programmes at Level 8 and the postgraduate diploma in education programe at Level 8 . These qualifications take full cognizance of this aspiration and provide pre-service student teachers with real world situations, various techniques of teaching, knowledge, skills, attitudes, and experiences that prepare them to meet challenges in the fields of teaching and learning.  Holders of these qualifications will be most suited for employment as graduate primary and secondary school teachers.  The envisaged qualifications also seek to prepare candidates for further education.
