The Technical and Vocational Education and Training Board (TVET) has inducted 22 Trade Subject Delivery Officers (TSDOs), to empower students with the relevant skills needed to be self-sustainable and job creators.
This is in a bid to improve qualitative teaching and learning of trade subjects across secondary schools in Ogun.
The Special Adviser to the Governor on TVET, Prof.
Joseph Odemuyiwa, said during the induction, on Friday in Abeokuta, that the move was to guarantee the smooth implementation of the National Policy on Education.
The policy stipulates that every secondary school student must offer at least, one trade subject, among other things.
Odemuyiwa said that the inductees are experts in various secondary schools that would focus on qualitative delivery of trade subjects as a way of imparting technical and engineering disciplines to students.
“There is a policy on education known as the national policy on science and technology education, within which you will operate to ensure that TVET in Ogun state is delivered the way it should.
“The purpose for this move is to bring you in as experts in our various secondary schools so that we will be able to focus on qualitative delivery of trade subjects as a way of catching them young for technical and engineering discipline,” he said.
Odemuyiwa charged the inductees to complement government’s effort by ensuring seamless implementation and effective coordination of qualitative technical and vocational education.
He urged them to do so as pioneers in the school to which they were posted.
Speaking on behalf of the inductees, Mr Sunday Abiodun, from United High School, Ikenne and Mrs.
Adeboye Omolara from Saint John’s Anglican Secondary School, Abeokuta, said they were impressed with the initiative.
They said that it would further help in enhancing the teaching and learning of vocational education across schools.
