JCE offers two major programs: Bachelor of Education (B.Ed), and a Post Graduate Diploma in Education, all via distance learning. JCE uniquely delivers a rare opportunity to beneficiaries to actively work while pursuing their academic ambitions with their distance or online learning modus operandi.

JCE students and graduates are highly considered in job and school applications. Jackson operates a distance learning program and has no permanent campus. The unique nature of this model has allowed them to build a presence in 13 regions, with 31 centers in 13 regions.
