According to the Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN), up to 70% of private school teachers in the southwest are unqualified.
The TRCN’s registrar, Josiah Ajiboye, addressed on Thursday in Abuja during the signing of an MoU with Instill Education, a professional development institute for teachers.
He stated that contrary to popular belief about the southwest and its high-quality private school teachers, 70% was unqualified.
According to Ajiboye, unqualified teachers not only defraud pupils but also the system.
According to him, 70% of untrained teachers do not meet the requirements for TRCN registration.
He went on to say that a vast proportion of teachers in Nigeria have never received training and use outmoded equipment for illustration.
According to Ajboye, the organization has approximately 2.3 million teachers on its database.
TRCN, he added, has created professional standards for Nigerian teachers (PSNT).
He claimed that Sierra Leone tamed it and that the Africa Union (AU) adopted it for use in Africa.
