The establishment of Institute of Education itself had a specific purpose: to assist in the development of education in Northern Nigeria by playing an advisory and consultative role in all matters relating to the development of education in general and quality control in teacher education in particular. The work of the Institute at the lower levels of education aims at improving the quality of intake into university faculties and thus a service to them. The contribution of the Institute can therefore be appreciated in terms of its pioneering role in developing programmes; its innovations; capacity to solve identified problems and the direct impact of its activities. It must again be emphasized however, that the Institute's activities complement those of the academic faculties. Our vision is for a Nigerian society through its educational system comprising of individuals and organizations possessing sound intellectual abilities, skills and moral values; and capable of responding to the needs of the Nigerian society and mankind at large.
Our mission is to produce well-rounded Nigerians through the provision of suitable courses of instruction and other services as contribution to meeting the goals and aspirations of the Nigerian society.
