The Lagos State Universal Basic Education Board, LASUBEB, in collaboration with Universal Basic Education Commission, UBEC, has commenced a five-day capacity development training for about 90 Basic Education Quality Assurance, BEQA, officers on new teaching techniques and classroom evaluations that will enhance pupils’ learning in the basic education sector.
The training is aimed at reinforcing the officers in classroom management techniques, adopting new teaching techniques, and classroom evaluation that will enhance pupils learning in the basic education sector.
Speaking at the training workshop for officers under the Y2016 Teachers Professional Development on Teaching Adaptive Techniques, the Executive Chairman of LASUBEB, Hon. Wahab Alawiye-King, said that the training was to ensure that basic education quality assurance officers in the state are fully equipped with modern techniques and technology of learning and teaching.
Adding that the training was also aimed at ensuring that the beneficiaries adopt best global practices, being one of LASUBEB’s mandate in upscaling and improving the skills of its teaching personnel, Alawiye-King said, “We have realized that manpower development and capacity building is essential in improving learning and teaching outcomes.”
Revealing that LASUBEB has adopted a cluster system for quality control, the Chairman added that officials of LASUBEB will henceforth be in charge of coordinating schools within certain specified areas in their localities.
He said, “We all cannot be in the schools at the same time, so officers in a particular area will supervise and control what happens in the school classrooms.”
Noting that the Board is not only monitoring the primary school content, but also the character, attitude, and behaviours of the teachers, he said that this will encourage and support the officers in delivering their duties rightly.
The permanent Board member in charge of Basic Education Quality Assurance, Hon. Dayo Israel, called on parents to take advantage of the Board’s teaching and learning platforms on the electronics and social media to encourage their wards to learn while staying at home during this COVID-19 pandemic.
