• We revised curriculum to produce specialised teachers – NCCE

    The National Commission for Colleges of Education (NCCE) on Thursday said that the commission had revised its curriculum to enhance the production of specialised teachers in all colleges of education.

    NCCE’s Acting Executive Secretary, Dr Alex Meyanga, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that the commission was moving away from the era of producing teachers in general subjects to that of specialised disciplines.

    He said that the review of the curriculum would enable teachers to specialise in a particular field unlike the general teaching techniques to improve the quality of teaching.

    Meyanga said that the NCCE had also introduced early childhood care education for teachers at the primary school level.

    He said that there were a lot of teachers roaming the streets without employment, adding that some schools preferred unqualified teachers, to cut cost.

    The NCCE boss blamed the recent drop in enrolment level of students into colleges of education on the attitude of the society toward the teaching profession.

    Meyanga lamented that discrimination against colleges of education would have adverse effect on Nigeria’s education system. (NAN)
