Janet is a forty years old teacher and teaches biology at Ojodu Junior High School. Janet disclosed that ‘some of the students who attend the school are products of broken homes; some exhibit truancy while a sizeable number have parents or guardians who have severe financial challenges and I find teaching very difficult in these circumstances’. The teaching facilities are also greatly overstretched. he students have diverse career aspirations. Some want to go on to the tertiary institutions; some want to learn a trade or are already apprentices in the various hand and craft professions. “Thorough exposure of the teachers to the training, the public school teachers would be better agents of change” says Janet.
The topics for the training are addressing underperformance and negotiation for improvement, discipline, meeting individual differences, motivation, new approaches to managing pupils, supporting students with learning disabilities. “With motivation this training is bringing, the teachers can set the spring board for their students to be globally competitive”.
