Kaduna State Government begins competency Test.

Written by on December 8, 2021

The Kaduna State Government has begun another competency test for primary school teachers.

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

Report says that the test is coming almost four years after the State Government conducted a similar exercise that led to the sacking of 22,000 unqualified teachers and the recruitment of 25,000 qualified ones.

It would also be recalled that in 2017, the Kaduna State Ministry of Education sacked over 20,000 unqualified teachers who failed a test conducted to determine their competency.
