Due to the persistent rise in the insecurity, 1,342 teachers in Borno, Adamawa, and Yobe, (BAY) states have been trained on how to build their resilience during insurgencies.

Education Officer at the United Nations Children Emergency Fund (UNICEF), Dr. Judith Giwa, stated this in Yola, Adamawa State capital, during a programme on ‘National dissemination of best practices on education in emergencies towards strengthening resilience in BAY states.’

The programme, sponsored by UNICEF in collaboration with the Adamawa State Universal Basic Education Board (ADSUBEB) was geared toward building education and supporting sectors’ functionaries with demonstrable education in emergency capacity to better plan and manage current and future emergency shocks.

Giwa said it is important for the BAY teachers to be armed with these skills.

“It is anticipated that the entire sector will be strengthened in resilience to withstand emergency-focused concerns and strive to ensure education continuity and the provision of quality education services to support improved learning outcomes for Nigeria children as a key contributor to the developmental index of Nigeria,” she said

She stressed the poor retention and transition as significantly impeding progress in access to education with barely 30% of children having foundational reading & numeracy skills.
