The registrar/chief executive of the Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN), Prof. Segun Ajiboye, on Friday disclosed that over 30, 000 registered teachers were to participate in the Council’s 2022 online capacity building conference.
Prof. Ajiboye, in a statement in Ibadan, said the annual conference themed Strengthening Teacher Capacity for More Resilient, Transformative and Inclusive Education System, which is in collaboration with UNESCO, would be declared open by the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu.
He stressed that the conference scheduled to be held between August 22 and 23, 2022, was also being supported by PLANE and Save-the-Children- International (SCI) with support from sister agencies such as NCCE and NTI.
“The 2022 annual conference of registered teachers is the 2nd edition of the conference and over 30,000 participants have registered online, while about 9,000 followers are expected to follow on our social media handles such as Facebook streaming live.
“Similarly, over 10,000 others will view the program live on UNESCO social media handles. The conference parades arrays of speakers from academia, development partners and active practitioners,” he said.
He said “a couple of others will be viewing the program in set up viewing centers across three states; namely Jigawa, Kano and Kaduna,” adding that the “online conference is one of the already institutionalised mechanisms put in place to fulfill the mandates of TRCN.”
