UNICEF says it will support the Kaduna State Government to implement “Teaching at the Right Level” (TaRL) programme to improve literacy and numeracy skills among primary school pupils.
The Education Officer, UNICEF Kaduna, Mr. Frances Elisha, told Newsmen at the end of a workshop to develop the implementation plan for the programme in Kaduna on Tuesday.
He said the goal was to improve learning outcomes in the state.
Elisha described TaRL as an evidence-based educational approach that helps children to develop basic reading and numeracy skills within a short period of time.
The UNICEF Education Officer said it would be piloted in 174 schools in Ikara Local Government Area of the state chosen because of its low learning outcome and high level of out of school children, adding that a positive result at the end of the pilot would enable government to scale it up to other schools across the state.
