BAF Commences 2018 Continuous Professional Development Training

For 200 Public Primary School Teachers in Lagos State.

Bunmi Adedayo Foundation commenced its 12-months Continuous Professional Development training programme for 200 teachers across 18 public primary schools in Lagos State on the 4th of January 2018. The flag-off of the training was also used to commemorate the 2nd year anniversary of the Foundation.

The 12 months training workshop is sandwiched with a robust Monitoring process that involves visiting schools after every workshop. There would be 6 training workshop between January and November 2018. 

At the Inaugural Ceremony, Mr Babatunde Akinleye, Chairman, Board of Directors of BAF, reiterated the need to reform and retrain Teachers that are already in the system so that they can better deliver.  This goes in line with the report of Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN) that between 30-40% of Primary School Teachers are not qualified to teach in the classroom. Bunmi Adedayo Foundation is therefore committed to reduce the dearth of quality and qualified teachers in Nigeria.

In his inaugural address, Dr Ganiyu Sopeyin, the Chairman of the Lagos State Universal Basic Education Board (LSUBEB), praised Bunmi Adedayo Foundation for its continuous and consistent investment in the area of Education in the state since inception in 2016. Dr Sopeyin further urged the beneficiaries of the training programme to take advantage of this golden opportunity and see it as a lifetime opportunity to improve themselves for better classroom delivery and professional discharge of their duties.

The Training Consultant to the Foundation, Dr Dolapo Ogunbawo, described teachers as the gateway to the future of the nation. She emphasized the importance of qualified manpower in the Educational Sector and the need for teachers to come to the full understanding of their role in shaping the lives of children who pass through them.

During the workshop, participants were divided into smaller groups A, B, C, and D, allowing the discussion to be free to explore whatever issues that it deemed appropriate.

The next workshop is scheduled for 22nd February, 2018.
