The Enugu government has trained 250 school principals on contemporary skills to build their capacity and improve the quality of education in the state.

In a speech at the workshop in Enugu on Tuesday, education commissioner Uche Eze gave assurance that government would continue to build the capacity of principals and teachers.

The workshop was organised by the Post-Primary Schools Management Board (PPSM) in partnership with the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPSS), Kuru, Plateau.

Mr Eze said the workshop was part of the government’s efforts to ensure that school administrators acquired modern skills in teaching.

According to him, this will improve the quality of education in Enugu. He urged the participants to practice what they learned to enhance their competencies.

“Because we cannot bring all the teachers in the state together in a place, we have decided to bring the principals, who are leaders in their various schools,” he explained. “By the time we equip them and come up with relevant skills and strategies that will help for efficiency, it will be their responsibilities to take that back to their schools.”

One of the facilitators, Uche Nwagwu, said the training showed that the state was giving education due attention.

Also, the NIPSS director of studies, Oluwafunmilayo Para-Mallam, said the workshop was key to sustaining the quality of education in Enugu.

Sylvanus Onoyima, the senior special adviser to Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi on due process and SERVICOM, commended PPSMB for organising the workshop.

Mr Onoyima urged PPSMB to intensify efforts in monitoring the schools to ensure that they complied with the set standards.
