EKOEXCEL: LASUBEB Trains 2,000 New Primary School Teachers

The Lagos State Universal Basic Education Board (LASUBEB) has trained 2,000 newly recruited primary school teachers in the way to integrate technological devices for instructional classroom delivery.

The training was done under the EKOEXCEL, an initiative of the state’s Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

According to LASUBEB, the training would not only empower and develop the newly recruited teachers and participating head teachers but also bring them up to speed with how knowledge is being impacted across other parts of the world.

EKOEXCEL is dramatically accelerating learning two times more learning math and 3 more in literacy.

The 2,000 teachers represent the final batch of teachers, who completed their training in a session phased in 3 batches to comply with the state government’s Covid-19 regulations.

While appreciating the government for organising the training, the participating teachers stated that they would implement all they had learnt.

They noted that the training would not only boost their confidence in the classrooms but also ensure their pupils are gainfully engaged in school.

EKOEXCEL, which means Excellence in Child Education and Learning, is an educational transformation initiative of the present administration. It is aimed at bridging the gap in quality education delivery, through the use of technological devices such as teaching tablets and smartphones in public primary school pedagogy.
