C’River Institute commences needs assessment for teachers’ development

By Our Reporter

The Teachers Continuous Training Institute (TCTI) in Biase, Cross River State, has commenced a statewide needs assessment of professional teachers across the State.

The purpose of the exercise involving schools in the 18 Local Government Areas of the state is to get inputs from 300 participants on their current and future needs as the participants are mostly from primary and secondary schools, vocational and technical colleges as well as Persons With Disabilities (PWD) in integrated settings.

Addressing newsmen on the justification of the programme, Director-General of the TCTI, Prof. Taoheed Adedoja explained that: “Curriculum is dynamic and a world-class institution like the TCTI must adopt training programmes that are best suited to the local needs of schools, as well as meeting global standard practices.”

Adding that, “With the rapid changes taking place in the 21st-century schooling system, curriculum, technology, knowledge and skills, needs assessment is able to point out areas of interest.

“After a thorough Needs Assessment Exercise, a total of one hundred primary school headteachers across the state will be selected to attend a 3-day intensive residential workshop on the ‘Application of Smart Skills to Teaching and Learning in primary schools’,” Professor Adedoja noted.

The TCTI, which before now has carried out several career trainings for teachers, is solely owned by the Cross River State government and was conceived to boost manpower development and guarantee quality education that meets global learning.

The institute is presently seeking collaborators for its various training programmes.
