The Liberia Cooperative Standard Education School System (LICOSESS) on Saturday, 24 February 2024, graduated its first Bachelor of Education (B.ED) candidates.

During the exercise, 90 candidates obtained a Bachelor’s degree from the College of Education. The Teacher College awarded Associate degrees under the sponsorship USAID TESTS program, in its 20th “AA” degrees program.

Additionally, 341 students obtained “C” Certificates. It was a colorful Convocation Commencement program held at the Liberty Christian Church in Johnsonville.

Dr. Benjamin Yele Wehye, president LICOSESS Teacher Training, said the Colleges of Education had undergone a sustainable transformation. He said the college has transitioned from just a “C” Certificate to a Bachelor’s degree as part of its unwavering commitment to help improve the education sector of Liberia. 

He indicated that the move aligned with the government’s quest to expand access to College education.

Dr. Wehye urged the graduates to continue to seek Knowledge and growth, while they embrace innovation and technology in their teaching practice.

“Remember you have the power to inspire and reshape the minds of the next generation of Liberian leaders and I have no doubt that you will rise to the occasion with grace and integrity,” Dr. Wehye said.
