…CHARGES THEM TO UTILIZE AVAILABLE TECHNOLOGY TO ACHIEVE GREATER RESULTS
The Chairman of Ekiti State Universal Basic Education Board(SUBEB) , Prof Femi Akinwumi has charged Quality Assurance Officers in the board to work assidously towards achieving the mandate of improving efficiency and quality of education in public primary schools in the state .
The SUBEB Chairman gave the charge in Ado-Ekiti during an induction training programme organised for newly selected Quality Assurance Officers from the 16 Local Govrnment Education Authorities in the state by the National Airspace Research Development Agency(NASRDA) in conjunction with UBEC /SUBEB in Ado-Ekiti
Akinwumi said all hands must be on deck to improve quality of education in Public Schools in state in view of the huge investment the administration of Dr Kayode Fayemi had made into the sector since its assumption of office in October,2018.
“As Quality Assurance Officers , you must be aware that
monitoring of schools is an important component of your duties .It is infact one of the key ingredients of your duties . Monitoring is not a one time affair, it must be carried out continuously at different phases to achieve the desired results . You must therefore keep an eagle eye on the minutest details when you are on the field. You must also bear in mind that it is only with proper monitoring of our schools that the huge investment of government in the basic education sector can have the desired impact”, Akinwumi said.
He reminded the newly selected officers that though they were already in the public service before their recent selection, there was a remarkable difference in their previous schedules of duties and their new roles as Quality Assurance Officers.
While charging the Quality Assurance officers to fully deploy the state-of- the-art facilities provided in the discharge of their duties ,he said there was no reason for them to fail as each of them had been provided with a laptop computer, a Samsung Galaxy Tab ,Global Positioning Equipment as well as a brand new motorcycle to enable them access all schools in the state.
The SUBEB boss therefore charged them to be diligent and painstaking in the discharge of their duties adding that the board would be counting on them to provide it with reliable and up to date data and information as well as improved quality of education in our schools
He commended UBEC and NASRDA for their support in enhancing the duties of Quality Assurance Officers in the state.
