Welcome to FCE Kontagora

Federal College of Education, Kontagora located in Niger State of Nigeria was established in September 1978, as Federal Advanced Teachers College (FATC).


In 1992, a presidential Task force recommended to the Federal Government that Federal Advanced Teachers' Colleges should be renamed Federal Colleges of Education and that heads of such institutions be conferred with a new designation of Provost. To this effect, the college was renamed Federal College of Education, Kontagora in 1992.

The college became autonomous in 1989 with the establishment of National Commission for Colleges of Education (NCCE). The College has a Provost as the head of the institution and the Current Head of the institution is Alhaji S.T. Sheshi (Acting Provost). This College has contributed greatly to the man power development of Nigeria, especially in the area of Teacher Education. The College runs programmes ranging from Certificate, Pre-NCE, NCE (regular), NCE (Sandwich) to degree courses.
