Edo SUBEB Trains 5,000 Teachers



Not less than 190,000 pupils in public schools in Edo State are billed to be schooled using technology based teaching aids and methods, as the Edo State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) commences training for 5, 000 teachers as part of the Edo Basic Education Sector Transformation (Edo-BEST) initiative.

Edo-BEST, launched by the governor Godwin Obaseki-led administration, is aimed at improving quality at the basic education sub sector and will see public school teachers using digital devices and aids in teaching.

Addressing Journalists in Benin City, the Edo State capital, special adviser to the Governor on Basic Education and acting chairperson, Edo SUBEB, Dr Joan Osa Oviawe, noted, “I feel excited that the training has begun for the first of three batches of 5,000 primary school teachers.”

Dr Oviawe further said, “By September, we would have successfully trained a total of 7,000 teachers and outfitted them with digital devices and smart phones for the head teachers.”

She explained that at the end of the training, “we would have successfully migrated up to 190,000 pupils onto a new teaching pedagogy that is learner centered, constructivist, nurturing. It is a method that promotes teaching without corporal punishment.”

She added, “By September 2018, 62 per cent of our 1,200 public primary schools in Edo State would be enrolled in the Edo-BEST programme.
