United Nations Children Fund said a total of one million pupils will benefit from improved teaching and modern learning facilities in the North East.

The UNICEF Chief of Maiduguri Field Office, Phuong Nguyen, stated this at a media dialogue on the achievements of the Global Partnership for Education Accelerated Funding project in Maiduguri.

The UNICEF chief said the effort is to address a large number of out-of-school children, and high dropouts and facilitate the retention of children in schools.

According to her, over eighteen thousand unqualified teachers have been trained by the National Teachers’ Institute and passed through the Teachers’ Registration Council qualifying examination to improve education in the three states of Adamawa, Borno and Yobe.

“The challenges of out-of-school children and the learning crisis in the education sector remain issues that UNICEF and other stakeholders are working to ensure that every child has the opportunity that education confers and be equipped with skills to survive and contribute positively to the society,” Nguyen said.

She disclosed that the 12-month course was funded by GPE accelerated funding and supported by UNICEF. Teaching at the Right Level (TaRL) and the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT) also supported the training of unqualified teachers.

The Global Partnership for Education Accelerated Funding project is an initiative of the Federal government through the ministry of education, the National Teachers’ Institute, and the Teachers’ Registration Council of Nigeria.
