Over a period of nine (9) years, it has grown to include a population of thirty-eight (38) students and fourteen (14) professors, twelve (12) of them serving the College on a fulltime basis and two (2) on a part-time basis (based on 1st Semester, S.Y. 11-12 data). While those working on a full-time basis at Letran College are readily available for consultation with the students and other academic-related activities, the part-time professors bring to their classrooms their wealth of experience born of long years in the teaching profession, thus filling the gap between the academe and the “real” world outside the classroom.
Likewise, the College considers it a special feature and a privilege to be able to expose the students to both public and private school situations for their field study and practice teaching experience.
At this point in its history, the small population of both students and teachers find it a joy to belong to the College of Education. If there is any part of the College where the family spirit and the spirit of “Arriba Letran” are so concretely expressed and lived, it is in this little corner of Letran where teachers follow their students through several courses with so much knowledge of each one, and with so much concern for their well-being. Students have openly and often expressed their appreciation for the commitment of their teachers to each one of them.
A point of pride is also the high rate of board passers from among the school’s small population.
Thus, humbly and quietly, starting with the school’s efforts to apply for a Philippine Accrediting Association of Schools, Colleges & Universities (PAASCU) pre-survey visit in S.Y. 2009-2010, the College of Education has gone on to apply for formal accreditation, which is set in August 2011.
