The Nigerian Certificate in Education programme (NCE) is a special Advanced level course designed to produce quality teachers for the basic education sub-sector. In response to the widespread criticism that the existing NCE programme is dislocated from its service sector, the National Commission for Colleges of Education (NCCE) has revised and updated the existing NCE minimum standards documents by incorporating new programmes to address the existing teacher needs at the basic education level. In view of this, this paper undertakes an analysis of the factors that are likely to impede the implementation of the new programmes which are tailored towards the attainment of Education for all (EFA) and the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) demands. The paper concludes with recommendations such as, adequate and functional infrastructure and resources should be provided in NCE awarding institutions to ensure effective implementation of the new NCE programmes and the annual fiscal provision for infrastructure and instructional facilities for NCE awarding institutions should be increased so that the educational needs of the institutions can be adequately met.
