A three-day capacity-building training for 30 selected educators has commenced in Bauchi State, aimed at expanding the scope of teaching in the region. The initiative, facilitated by Girls Education Mission International in collaboration with the Bauchi State Ministry of Education and the State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), is sponsored by the TY Danjuma Foundation.

The training was officially inaugurated on Tuesday at the Smart School Conference Hall, Bauchi, by the State Commissioner of Education, Dr. Jamila Dahiru. Represented by the Permanent Secretary, Babayo Gamawa, the Commissioner emphasized that the 30 participants were carefully selected from secondary schools across the state’s 20 local government areas.

Dr. Dahiru explained that the goal is to eventually train 5,000 teachers across Bauchi State. The selected participants will serve as trainers who will disseminate their knowledge at the school level, ensuring a ripple effect of improved teaching methods. This initiative aligns with the government’s priority to create an effective and efficient learning environment in all schools.

The Commissioner highlighted the Ministry’s ongoing collaboration with various education sector agencies to enhance service delivery quality. She praised Girls Education Mission and the TY Danjuma Foundation for their support and assured that the Ministry would work diligently to achieve the training’s objectives. She urged participants to fully engage with the presentations and to consider themselves fortunate for being selected among many qualified candidates.

Adamu Mohammed Duguri, Chairman of SUBEB, also praised the initiative, stating that it would significantly boost the state’s education sector. He promised that the Board would ensure the training’s positive impacts are felt in all schools.

Keturah Shammah, Executive Director of Girls Education Mission International, explained that the training is part of the “Quality Education for Lifelong Learning” (QELL) project. She acknowledged the Education Commissioner’s strong support and highlighted the excellent cooperation with relevant stakeholders. Shammah stressed that the training aims to create an effective teaching and learning environment, particularly addressing Bauchi State’s high number of out-of-school children.

She commended the state government’s prioritization of education, seeing it as a commitment to securing a better future for the children. Participants expressed their eagerness to learn and assured their dedication to implementing the training at their respective schools.
