Abstract

The quality of the teachers of the basic education programme in Nigeria has been a major concern of stakeholders, and especially of the National Commission for Colleges of Education (NCCE) which has responsibility for the regulation, supervision and production of quality teachers in that sector. Working in conjunction with several development partners especially the COL, DFID and UNICEF, the NCCE has been able to initiate some programmes, three of which may change profoundly the face of teacher education programmes in this country. The purpose of this presentation is to showcase these three programmes and therefrom propose the future direction the Commission intends to move: (i) Instilling quality in the preparation/training of pre-service teachers using the Quality Assurance Toolkit; (ii) Instilling quality in the preparation/training of in-service teachers using the Open Education Resource (OER) materials; and (iii) Establishment of Centres for Educational Technologies (CETs), and the development of skills in, and popularisation of the use of ICTs in Colleges of Education. // Paper ID: 367
