NGO Trains Over 200 Teachers In Effective Communication, Others

FOREMOST Non-governmental Organisation (NGO), The Young Communicators Initiative (TYCI), trained over 200 teachers in the country through its Train and Empower Teachers (TET) project for free in Abuja.

In an interview after the training, the founder of the organisation and lead coordinator, Train and Empower Teachers (TET) project, Chinenye Priscilla Anaemena-Alu, said building the capacity of  teachers is as important as running the economy of any nation.

She stressed that the future of the country depends on the younger generation who are under the mentorship of their teachers. Therefore it is important to train and retrain teachers so they can in turn impart positive values and problem solving skills on the children for the greater good of the society.

“This is our first inaugural project and we have developed over 200 teachers physically and virtual on effective elocution mastery in school, digital pedagogy, role of teachers in child rights and protection, effective school leadership and lots more.

“We call on organizations, individuals and government to collaborate with us in this continuous journey of improving quality of education for all through capacity development programmes for teachers.

Speaking further, Chineye said, a nation cannot be considered as developed without giving attention to developing their teachers as teachers are the glue that bonds the society together.

The theme of the training: “Teachers Come Collaborate and Learn”, provided an avenue for teachers from various schools who participated to discuss challenges the education sector is facing and how it can be curbed.

Some of the challenges identified include unhealthy work environment, cultism, bullying in schools and issues bothering around social and mental health, just to mention but a few.

One of the participants, the proprietress of Royal Gems Mathematical School, Dr. Oluwatoyin Ariyo- Ojeme, said one of the ways to give back to the society is through continuous training of teachers irrespective of whether they will stay or leave the school.

One of the facilitators, who spoke on Effective School Leadership System, Onyinyechi A. O- Etusi, added that the TET Project is a great initiative for teachers to truly see themselves as instructional leaders and be heard as they are instrumental in the growth and development of the society.

Other participants commended the NGO for coming up with a laudable initiative that offers free for all training for teachers.

According to them, the TET project has greatly exposed them and will improve their performance as educators.
