Kabaleo Teachers’ College comes under the Catholic Archdiocese of Rabaul. It currently offers a two-year course for the Diploma in Teaching for primary school teachers, based on the Department of Education curriculum. It was started by Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Order of Sisters at Vunapope in the 1950s, and moved to the present site near Takubar, just outside of Kokopo town, in 1969. Originally set up as a college for women only, the first male students were enrolled in 1996.
