Kaduna Government Commences Competency Test For Teachers Despite Kicks From Labor

Kaduna State Government has commenced another competency test for primary school teachers as part of efforts to ensure quality teaching and learning in basic schools across the state.

The Nigerian Union of Teachers, and the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC), have registered their displeasure over the test and  have resolved to embark on a peaceful protest.

Despite their displeasure, the government still went ahead to employ about 25,000 new qualified teachers to fill the gaps.

Addressing journalists on Tuesday, at the commencement of the computer-based test held in three different centres, the Chairman of the State Universal Basic Education Board, Tijjani Abdullahi said the competency test is not to sack any teacher but to identify gaps in the subject areas for training and retraining the teachers.

“The teachers that are here will see the difference in the approach of the testing,” the State SUBEB Chairman said.

They are expected to answer ten questions per subject, including; English language, Mathematics, Social studies and basic science.
