'Seke Teachers College is a Government National Primary Training College situated in the town of Chitungwiza about 26 kilometres South East of the capital city Harare. It is one of Zimbabwe's first Teacher training institutions that produces Primary School level teachers in the form of a University of Zimbabwe issued Diploma.
The college opened its doors to student teachers for the Certificate in Education in January 1981. This was partly a response to the government’s policy of ensuring education for all Zimbabweans by the year 2000.
The government took up the project in 1978 and opted to build the new college in the developing area of Chitungwiza where a number of new primary and secondary schools were springing up, due to the increase in population which was taking place.
The college was officially opened by the then Prime Minister and subsequently the First Executive President of the Republic of Zimbabwe, Comrade Robert Gabriel Mugabe in 1983. The college has influenced and impacted positively on the local community and more importantly on the development of education in Zimbabwe primary schools.
