The Kwara State Government has disclosed that it would train all the 2,701 newly recruited SUBEB Teachers at the Staff Development Centre, Ilorin.

According to the statement released by the Kwara State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), the chairman, Professor Shehu Raheem Adaramaja revealed that the training was part of the government’s efforts at providing quality education to its citizens.

Adaramaja while speaking with the journalists during the ongoing documentation of the newly recruited teachers at the board’s premises, said the newly recruited SUBEB teachers will not be allowed to teach the students without undergoing proper training.

“[They] will not be allowed into our schools to teach our students without being properly trained in the areas of capacity building, methodology of teaching, classroom discipline and as well as professional ethics, because many of the new teachers graduated 6 to 8 years ago and are not in touch with what is going on now in the teaching profession,” he stated.

The SUBEB Boss described the recruitment process as transparent, adding that “it is the beginning of a new age in Kwara, where children of nobody becomes somebody without knowing anybody because there was no political influence in the recruitment exercise”.

Adaramaja further explained that the approval of the Governor and the needs assessment greatly determined the number of teachers that were employed during the recruitment exercise.

“The needs assessment was the request of teachers from individual schools through the principal of schools and through the Education Secretaries of the 16 Local Government Areas of the state,” he emphasized

Professor Adaramaja advised the newly recruited SUBEB teachers to be committed and dedicated while discharging their duties.

He however commended the Kwara state government under the leadership of Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq and the Universal Basic Education Commission for their unflinching support at the ongoing 3-weeks capacity building training organised for the teachers in the state as well as the upcoming Teachers training scheduled for next week.
