{xtypo_info}A Brief History of the Creation, Past and Current Leadership of the Department{/xtypo_info}

{xtypo_rounded2}
The Sandwich Programme actually started with the former St. Andrew’s College of Education, Oyo now Emmanuel Alayande College of Education, Oyo on 23rd of April, 1997. The tentacle of Affiliate Programme from the University of Ado-Ekiti, has now spread to other Colleges of Education like Adeniran Ogunsanya College of Education, Otto-Ijanikin, Lagos State; Kwara State College of Education, Ilorin, Kwara State; Kwara State College of Education, Oro, Kwara State; and Michael Otedola College of Primary Education, Noforija, Epe, Lagos State.
The Programme was formerly under the supervision of the Faculty of Education through the Dean of the Faculty who delegated the academic responsibility of the Programme to the Sub-Dean. The Programme started with Prof. M. F. Alonge as the Dean of Education in 1997/'98 session with Dr. O. V. Adeosun as the Sub-Dean. This was followed by Dr. (Mrs.) Bimbo Odu, then Dr. I. A. Ajayi, Dr. J. B. Ayodele and Dr. M. A. Ayeni.
The University Administration set up the Directorate of Part-Time Programmes to oversee all the programmes that are tagged Part-Time in the University. Thus, the Affiliate Programme came under the supervision of the Directorate with a Director as the head and to be assisted by Assistant Directors and Coordinators in all the Units. This new arrangement brought Dr. O. T. Owolabi in, as Coordinator of Affiliate Programme in 2005. He worked with Dr. I. A. Ajayi who was the first Assistant Director in the new arrangement. Dr. J. A. Oluwatayo succeeded Dr. O. T. Owolabi for a period of two years (2007—2009). At Present, 2009—2010, Dr. (Mrs.) F. A. Adebayo is the Coordinator under the Assistant Directorship of Dr. M. A. Ayeni.
