Exxon Mobil Trains 300 Primary School Teachers In Akwa Ibom State
Business News – At least 300 primary school teachers in 12 local government areas of Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria have benefited from new methods of teaching, reading and writing, at a 3-Day Capacity Building Workshop held yesterday in Eket.
Sponsored by NNPC/Mobil Joint Venture and facilitated by Science Teachers Association of Nigeria (STAN) Akwa Ibom State branch, at Government Secondary School, Afaha-Eket in Eket, touched on subject areas of English Studies, Mathematics, Basic Science and Technology and Civil Education, with
Emphasis on selected topics with high difficulty indices of presentation to pupils by the teachers.
Declaring the workshop open, the commissioner for education, Mrs Eunice Thomas, expressed the hope that the workshop would bring to bear considerable change in the pattern of teacher behaviour to fast-track the realisation of the aims and objectives of the free and compulsory education in the state.
Thomas charged teachers to work hard to earn the respect of their pupils through knowledge of their subject matter, competence and dedication to duty, saying this was important now as every learner, even in primary schools, are quick to detect incompetence and quackery.
The commissioner said this was important because, “As we are all aware, teachers are among the critical stakeholders in the delivery of quality educational services in the State”.
The commissioner commended the sponsors and facilitators of the workshop, saying that the partnership was a welcome development as government alone cannot afford the huge funds needed for education development.
In his speech, the manager, public and government affairs, NNPC/Mobil Joint Venture, Qua Iboe Terminal, Mr Akaninyene Esiere, said sponsorship of the workshop was part of the company’s strategy to deepen and strengthen teaching methodologies in the education sector especially at the primary school level.-Leadership
