Lagos State Universal Basic Education Board’s Chairman, Hon.

The Executive Chairman made this submission recently at A-5 day capacity building workshop for Early Child Care Development Education in Lagos with the theme “Effective Management of the Classroom.”

He said, “We can have the best of infrastructure, if we don’t have the right sets of teachers, I don’t think the learning outcome we are going to get is going to be very encouraging.”

Alawiye-King added that since the state government wants teachers that are academically and professionally qualified, there is the need for the government to continuously train its workforce to be at par with their contemporaries globally.“

The world is changing, evolving on a daily basis and in other for us to survive in a competitive world, we need extra-ordinary skills, we need additional skills and that is why it is necessary for us to provide these skills for you,” the Chairman restated.

The training according to Alawiye-King was part of the policy direction of the Board to empower teachers, by preparing them for higher callings, through the acquisition of necessary skill that is required of them to be competitive anywhere in the world.

He urged the participants to take advantage of the training taking place simultaneously in three different centres namely; Kosofe, Oshodi and Lagos Island and be prepared to make the outcome of the training reflect on the performance of the pupils of Lagos public primary school positively.

He said that the Board members of LASUBEB remains committed to their promise of bequeathing a better educational standard to the people of the State especially through its mantra of ‘leave no child behind’.

The Director of Schools Support Department, LASUBEB, Mr. Ade Abatan enjoined participants to extend the knowledge gained at the training programme to the school pupils and other teachers.

“We do expect that the lessons learnt at this programme should not end with you, when you get back to your school, we want to see changes in the school children as well as your colleagues. You should cascade the knowledge you are going to gain from the training to them,” the Director pleaded.

The representative of the Universal Basic Education Commission (Abuja) Achu Anne, appreciated the Executive Chairman of the Board for the opportunity given to the teachers through the training programme. Other Permanent Board Members of LASUBEB in attendance, namely Hon Sherifat Adedoyin-Sanusi Hon. Dayo Isreal and Hon. Bayo Adefuye also spoke in the same vein.
