About the school

The School of Education is the fulcrum of formal education in Malawi. At the tertiary level of education, it remains the oldest School of Education in Malawi. In its conception, the School of Education was established to train teachers and education practitioners for the Malawi education sector. Over time, its mandate has evolved and it is now engaged in research, curriculum design and development, community outreach activities and consultancies.

As an academic, Dr Namphande has won various awards, grants and study scholarships. Before joining the University of Malawi, Dr Namphande worked with the Ministry of Education as a Principal Education Methods Advisor, and Senior Education Methods Advisor (currently renamed as Principal Quality Assurance Officer and Senior Quality Assurance Officer respectively).
