Education is the basic foundation and leverage for every growing society. It is
the underground constructive measure that can lead to a natural development
when trained personnel are equipped with ability and capability to impact
knowledge and skills to students. The standard of colleges of education is going
down due to the numerous problems faced by the staff and students and this calls
for a great concern. Guidance and counselling is a hub towards managing the
many challenges in colleges of education. This paper therefore focused on the
problems that besiege the colleges of education and the counselling strategies
that can be used to enhance the growth and development of colleges of
education. The paper recommends that government should provide the needed
facilities in colleges of education; qualified teachers should be recruited,
leadership training, seminars and workshops should be organized for staff and
students so as to ensure productivity, government should employ more
counsellors in the schools to tackle the problems of the staff as well as the
students; evaluation processes, conferences and talk shows should be
organized at periodic intervals to sensitize all members of the colleges of
education community on the need to strive to raise the standard of the colleges of
education.

Keywords:
