Gboyega Oyetola, Governor of Osun State

Successful applicants in the recently conducted teachers’ recruitment exercise in Osun State have begin to receive notification message from the State’s Ministry of Education informing them of their appointment into the state’s teaching service.

The latest development was made known via a statement by the Osun State Commissioner for Education, Hon. Folorunso Oladoyin.

Oladoyin, in the statement, commended the state governor, Mr Adegboyega Oyetola, for keeping to his promise of recruiting only the best teachers to teach in Osun public schools.

The commissioner added Governor Oyetola has demonstrated that the delivery of quality education to pupils in Osun public schools is paramount to the future of the state.

He commended the governor for allowing what he described as a very rigorous screening process where the recruited teachers were made to go through micro-teaching for 30 minutes after a tough examination which was conducted by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB).

The commissioner added that the selection process which was done purely on merit has again demonstrated the Governor’s open and transparent style of governance and the fact that government wants only the best teachers to teach pupils in public schools.

Oladoyin stated that the recruitment, which is inclusive of both degree and NCE holders, has been adjudged by renown education stakeholders as thorough and rigorous and it’s capable of forming the backbone of Osun education sector for the foreseeable future.

He explained that the micro-teaching stage of the recruitment process which is a departure from the past was introduced because of the need to recruit the best from the pool of applicants as the state government is determined to produce students who can compete with any of their peers from anywhere in the world.

He said, “The newly recruited teachers will not be thrown straight into the classroom but will be made to go through a comprehensive and intensive training exercise to prepare them mentally, emotional and physically for the task ahead.

“There is a lot of departure from the past in this particular recruitment process simply because we want the best for our students in Osun. We made them go through the micro-teaching exercise because that is the only way of ascertaining their mastery of the subject contents and their ability to articulate and effectively communicate their thoughts. We are also going to train them before they start work.
