The Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB) has commenced a development programme for select teachers of junior secondary schools in Bayelsa State in collaboration with the State Government.

The programme commenced on Monday and will ultimately benefit teachers from the six geo-political zones of the nation, with Bayelsa State being the pilot. The particular training will last for 6 weeks and holds at the University of Africa in Toro Orua, Sagbama LGA, Bayelsa State.

Two hundred and fifty teachers are participating in the current scheme – 75 in Mathematics, 75 in English Language, 50 in Basic Science and 50 in Basic Technology.

This development programme is in line with NCDMB’s Nigerian Content Human Capacity Development Initiative, which is geared to grow local skilled manpower for the oil and gas industry.

The Board sponsored the development programme with a view to equipping teachers who are responsible for forming the foundation of Nigerian graduates, some who would work in the oil and gas industry and other key sectors of the economy.

The General Manager, Capacity Building Division, NCDMB, Dr. Ama Ikuru explained that the programme was conceived because the Board had over time detected some deficiencies in many Nigerian graduates while conducting training programmes and preparing them for opportunities in the oil and gas industry. Some of these deficiencies, he added, were attributed to the graduates’ poor learning foundations.

  2. I hereby respectfully wish to join millions of fellow Nigerians in appreciating and commending the ES of NCDMB for training 250 Bayelsa teachers in collaboration with the Bayelsa State Government with a plan to extend to the other zones of the country. Even though this development programme is in line with NCDMB’s Nigerian Content Human Capacity Development Initiative, it takes the political will and technical dexterity for the ES and his Mgt. team to bring to fruition. This training will go a long way in up scaling and sharpening their skills in the chosen areas. Bravo sir.
