HISTORY OF THE COLLEGE
The Sarkin Yamma Community College of Education (SYACCOE) Tilden Fulani is a child of necessity which came to being with a view to solving the problems of youth restiveness in our community, the state (Bauchi) and the nation in general. This is because of the fact that youth restiveness is a direct repercussion of idleness. An idle mind is a devil workshop which can be danger to the youth restiveness necessitated the establishment of this college of education named after one of the famous chiefs of Tilden Fulani, Sarkin Yamma Abubakar, who was so concerned about the education of youth during his time.
- The problem of increasing number of secondary school graduates in Tilden Fulani and environs had reached an alarming state which if not checked will be a very serious danger to the prosperity of the community and even beyond. For this reason, the Tilde Community development association (TCDA) conducted the need assessment on this problem with a view to finding solution. The result of the needs assessment that the way forward in a bid to curtain this problem is to create an opportunity for these youths to develop their capacity. For this reason, TCDA went ahead to establish this college of education so that our youth who possess the minimum entry qualification for entry into a tertiary institution access the opportunity to do so.
- As a result of the afore mentioned, the community under the auspices of TCDA resolved to establish this college of education with a view to creating an opportunity to our youths to get admission in the college to further their education. It is our belief that if these youths are not given the opportunity to develop intellectually, they can be a serious threat to the peaceful coexistence of the whole community.
- in view of the above, Sarkin Yamma Community College of Education became a reality and started academic activities on the 5th of January, 2015. With a total number of students’ population of four hundred and fifteen (415) distribution in the twelve departments of the college spread in five (5) schools.
