FG to engage 1st class and 2nd Class upper Graduates as teachers

Permanent Secretary Federal Ministry of Education, Sonny Echono in a statement has made it known that the federal government will be engaging first and second class graduates.

Echono made this known while speaking on Saturday November 14 as he monitored the conduct of the 2020 October Diet Batch B Teachers’ Professional Qualifying Examinations (PQE), noted that teachers without requisite qualifications, competencies and practicing licences will be permanently migrated out of the Nigerian teaching service.

The permanent secretary maintained that the entry level will be higher and teachers absorbed into the programme will get better remuneration with increased allowances.

In his words,

“By 2021, we will not engage teachers if they don’t meet particular threshold, we are now limiting entry point of teaching only to the best who are qualified, we will engage individuals with second class upper and first class divisions.

“We will make arrangements for conversion programmes for people who have these categories of results from other fields, they need to learn pedagogy, methodology, through the NTI and the TRCN, and they will undergo specific programmes that will empower them to teach.

“We must enforce Mr. President’s directive that only qualified teachers will be allowed into our classrooms. The Professional Qualifying Examinations is going on smoothly across 34 states and the feedback has been good.
