Lagos trains 300 primary, secondary schools’ science teachers
Dr Ganiyu Sopeyin, Chairman, Lagos State Universal Basic Education Board, (SUBEB) on Friday said that the board had trained 300 primary and secondary school science teachers in order to improve their performances.
A statement by Sopeyin and made available to newsmen in Lagos said the training was organised by the board in conjunction with the Faculty of Education, Lagos State University (LASU).
He said that the training would also assist the students to improve on their performances in external examinations.
The chairman said that Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State had earlier directed that the board should always organise regular training for primary and secondary school teachers to improve the education sector of the state.
Meanwhile, Prof. Ayodeji Badejo, Dean, Faculty of Education of LASU, said that the training would help the teachers to improve on their professional practice and self-esteem.
Badejo said that most of the teachers had not been exhibiting the expected self-confidence attributed to a teacher which was not healthy for the education sector.
“A teacher should be able to exhibit the aura of confidence that is transmittable to his or her students,’’ she said.
The dean said that the training would focus on the teaching of science subjects, contemporary approaches to method delivery, skills’ improvement, early child-care education and the utilisation of resource materials.
