The need for the creation of a working uniform scheme of work for Technical Colleges in the state has been stressed with scholars and curriculum experts being called upon to put in their best to develop one which would bring to the fore the many advantages that technical education has to offer to the economy.
Delta state commissioner for Technical Education, Princess Shola Daibo, gave this charge during the opening ceremony of a four-day workshop organized by the Delta State Ministry of Technical Education with the aim of developing a uniform scheme of work for technical colleges in the State.
‘’As professionals in your subject areas, your knowledge of the subject matter must be brought to bear through the quality of work to be achieved at the close of this workshop,”she urged.
The commissioner said that it had become necessary to organize a workshop to create a harmonized scheme of work because routine school inspections had revealed that the teaching sequence of the various technical colleges were not in tandem.
Still speaking, she said that a uniform scheme of work, being a detailed logical, sequential plan of action that interprets the syllabus, would make teaching and learning process systematic and orderly as well as help teachers to plan lessons in advance, budget for time, space and other resources.
The workshop had in attendance academic professionals and curriculum development experts from different academic institutions in the state.
Prof. S.I Akinseinde, Prof. L.Bratte,prof. K.Umunadi all from DELSU and Prof. A.Ojugo from FUPRE among others would serve as panelists/facilitators throughout the workshop.
