TRCN partners UNESCO to train over 30,000 teachers
An online capacity-building conference will feature participation from more than 30,000 registered teachers.

Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN) in conjunction with the UN Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization organise the training (UNESCO).

Professor Segun Ajiboye, the Registrar/Chief Executive of the Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN), made this announcement on Friday.

The conference takes place from August 22 to August 23, 2022.

Strengthening teacher capacity for a more resilient, transformative, and inclusive education system was the conference's theme, according to Ajiboye, who also promised that the Council would keep looking for ways to help registered teachers be better able to fulfil their mandates in a high-quality manner.

He said: “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 programme live on UNESCO social media handles. The conference parades arrays of speakers from the academia, development partners and active practitioners.

“A couple of others will be viewing the programme in set up viewing centers across three states namely Jigawa, Kano and Kaduna.”

Ajiboye stated that the online conference was one of the already institutionalized mechanisms put in place to fulfil the mandates of TRCN.
