1,500 SEPIP TRAINED TEACHERS FOR TARABA IDPS CAMPS

1,500 SEPIP TRAINED TEACHERS FOR TARABA IDPS CAMPSAbout 1,500 teachers, trained under the State Education Programme Investment Project (SEPIP) in Taraba State, have been deployed to
teach in Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) camps.
SEPIP is a World Bank-assisted programme for schools in the Northeast ravaged by Boko Haram insurgency and other conflicts.
Project Coordinator Mohammed Bashir Suleiman, said: “The move is to reach the displaced children and other hard-to-reach areas in the Northeast. Taraba currently has over 285,000 out-of-school children, of which IDPs children contribute to this figure.
“Our target is to train more teachers and motivate them to go into the villages to teach these children. We have teachers, but most of them prefer to stay in towns. However, with the training and motivation we are giving them, more and more teachers are now willing to be deployed in villages.”
Suleiman added that the World Bank-supported Better Education Service Delivery for All (BESDA) will start in Taraba State soon.
BESDA is targeted at increasing equitable access for out-of-school children and improving literacy level, especially in early grades.
The agency hailed Governor Darius Ishaku for prompt payment of counterpart funds for the project.
