The Nigerian Tulip International Colleges, NTIC, has organized an intensive training for 500 teachers drawn from five states in the country on various methodologies in modern day teaching and learning.
This is in line with the Nigerian government policy on the training and retraining of teachers as part of efforts in improving the country’s educational sector.
The 5-day training in Abuja, organised in preparation for the new academic session, was facilitated by resource persons from the United Kingdom and Nigeria.
The training exposed the teachers to modern teaching tools and also the rudiments of learning in the 21st century.
It also afforded teachers of the various subjects the opportunity to learn new skills and well as share their experiences with their colleagues to be more resourceful for the new academic session.
According to the school’s Managing Director, Mr. Orhan Kertim, ”we emphasize excellence, hence the conference that provides that opportunity for the management of the NTIC to interact and engage with our teachers drawn from all our schools in five states Abuja, Lagos, Ogun, Kaduna, Kano, and Yobe.”
The NTIC’s Deputy Managing Director, Mr Feyzullah Bilgin said the training was to deepen the quality of teacher for optimal performance as teaching and learning require a lot of dynamics.
“The success of students learning depends on the quality and performance of the teachers.
So if the teachers know what they are doing regarding planning and adequate exposure, the students will be shaped accordingly academically.”
“We at NTIC lay emphasis on training and teaching our teachers to be optimal in their teaching skills, and that is why we have made it mandatory to organise a teacher’s conference before the beginning of a new academic session,” he added.
The training also afforded teachers of the various subjects the opportunity to learn new skills and share their experiences with their colleagues to be more resourceful for the new academic session.
This year’s edition has as its team of Professional and Personal Development with two international resource persons from the United Kingdom and some Nigerian scholars who groomed the teachers on the various methodologies in modern day teaching and learning.
