Board scales up retraining of teachers in FCT
In furtherance to fulfilling its mandate of sustaining the quality of teachers through training and retraining, the FCT Secondary Education Board has intensified capacity building.
To this end, the board in partnership with one of its leading stakeholders in the education sector, Learn Africa has organised series of one-day intensive training tagged 'Mega Workshop' open for over 100 FCT English and Mathematics teachers in the 62 senior secondary schools in the FCT.
Flagging off the initiative, Alhaji Baba, in charge of school services division, who represented the board chairman, said the partnership was influenced by the resolve of the board to make FCT a pacesetter in the provision of quality education in the country.
Baba noted that learning and teaching cannot be productive without regular training and retraining as well as update of teachers who are on the field.
This, he said explains the emphasis of the current leadership of the board on capacity building and manpower development in the 8 points agenda rolled out on assumption of office about 5 months ago is yielding great results.
According to him, "it is heartwarming to partner with Learn Africa, which will further help to have a uniform and high quality education standard for future leaders", adding that the latest training made it the third for schools under the board's supervision,
He, therefore, commended the Learn Africa for investing in education through training and provision of quality learning materials for schools in FCT.
Baba urged the participants to use this training opportunity to enrich their knowledge and make education in FCT a reference point of high standard.
Similarly, the Learn Africa district manager, North Central, Mr. Abeen Emmanuel, opined that the educational organisation is building a strong foundation for learners to keep discovering their potential in all areas of life in the learning environment which is sustained after school.
