NCE NOT ENOUGH AS TEACHERS QUALIFICATION
« on: May 14, 2009, 06:14:03 PM »
The Director General of the National Teachers? Institute (NTI) Kaduna, Dr. Aminu Ladan Sherehu has stressed the need for the upgrade of entry qualification for teachers in the country, saying the National Certificate of Education (NCE) is not enough for them to take their rightful position in the development processes of the country.

Teachers Grade 2 used to be the entry qualification into the teaching profession in Nigeria but following the dwindling quality and the adverse effects on the standard of education, the Federal Government  changed it to the NCE and all institutions running TC 2 were directed to stop.

Speaking when the leadership of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) Kaduna State council paid him a courtesy visit, he said for the country to be among the 20 most developed economies in 2020, the standard and quality of  teachers must be enhanced through training and re-training.  He said the institute had commenced the arrangement to introduce Bachelor of Education (B.ED) and Master of Education in addition to the NCE programme being run by the institute.

He said the institute was ready to partner with any organisation including the NUJ in meeting its target objective. The Kaduna State council chairman of the NUJ, Mr. Andrew Fadason in his address said the institute was leading the way to the enhancement of education in the country through its various teachers? development programmes. He reiterated the readiness of the council to partner with the institute in the areas that would be of mutual benefit to the two organisations.
