Why Should You Consider Sandwich Programme

You want to know if the sandwich courses are right for you. Good!

I’d earlier said that the programme is perfect for teachers. In fact, some schools only run sandwich programmes for education courses. You know when you study education in school and earn your degree in education; you end up being a teacher. Right?

If you don’t know that, that is it!

Of course, you can have sandwich programmes for other disciplines than education. But sandwich education is more popular for the teaching profession.

How is the Sandwich Programme Conducted? 

Usually, schools conduct the courses on a part-time basis. Candidates are accommodated for continuing studies at a certain period of the years.

For example, those institutions that run sandwich for education courses run the course during school breaks (long vacations). Hence, the attendees are welcome to campus or their study centres by the first term, second term and third term breaks.
