The decision to establish an Advanced Teachings’ College (ATC), as it was called at Katsina-Ala was taken by the government of the defunct Benue-Plateau state headed by the Late Mr .J.D Gomwalk. Though financial provision was made for this in the 1975/76 estimates, and in the five-year development plan, no practical steps were taken to implement this decision. In January, 1976, Mr. D. O Idah was appointed principal with instructions to commence whatever arrangements necessary to get the college started by September, 1976, on a temporary site either in Makurdi, Jos or Otukpo. Students’ enrolment too has risen tremendously over the years. Since its inception in 1976 and with the intake of 530 students, students’ population has grown appreciably now to 10000.

However in the 2014/15 Academic Session the college restarted the B.Ed programme, this time in affiliation with the University of Calabar. Ten (10) programme options are available for the programme.
