The College of Teacher Education (CTE) became a separate college in 1979 when the Nueva Vizcaya State University was still Nueva Vizcaya State Institute of Technology (NVSIT). Prior to its operation as a separate college, the Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Education (BSAEd) was offered in 1973 that gave forth to the first graduates in 1977; and, the Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Extension (BSAExt) and Bachelor of Science in Industrial Education (BSIE) were offered in 1976. In 1985, the college commenced the Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education (BSEEd) which gave way to its new nomenclature, Bachelor of Elementary Education (BEEd) in 1994. With education in demand, the CTE offered Bachelor of Secondary Education (BSEd) in 1999; Bachelor of Physical Education (BPE) in 2013; and Bachelor of Technical Teacher Education (BTTE) in 2015. Since its operation, CTE has been producing graduates who have shown exemplary performance in the Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET) with several students find top spots in the roster of regional performing examinees.
With the good performance in pre-service education and with its aspiration to enrich teaching skills of teachers the CTE absorbed from the former Graduate School six (6) graduate programs that were verticalized in 2014.

EM); Master of Arts in Education (MAED); Master of Education (MEd); and Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT).
