College of Teacher Education

In 1983, the vision of Dr. Salvio E. Llanera, to have a teacher training institution that will provide quality teachers was realized when, Filamer Christian University formerly, Filamer Christian College offered Bachelor in Elementary Education. In 1994, the Bachelor in Secondary Education was offered as an additional program of the College. True to his vision, the College of Education earned good reputation. Its student population grew, the passing percentage PBET and the Licensure Examination for Teachers was high. It produced topnotchers in the board examination national level in the persons of Ramy Lloyd Lotilla (1997 first 5); Kenn O. Batacandolo, (2000, first) and recently Arlyn Clarito (2011 Top 5); Josephine C. Elvas (Rank 9, 2014); and Mark Anthony A. Durana (top 10, 2015).
