TEACHER EDUCATION CURRICULUM IN NIGERIA IN THE PERSPECTIVE OF LIFELONG EDUCATION

Abstract

Author(s): S. N. OSUJI

Teacher education, both pre- and in-service programmes, are offered in the country by different teacher education institutions as declared in the National Policy on Education. However, although commendable efforts have been made, yet much needs to be desired in the context of lifelong education. There should be parity between the regular full-time and the sandwich programmes in terms of entry qualification, course duration and course content, nor should the in-service programmes be commercialized. Teacher education offering requires all hands to be on deck including the governments, teacher education institutions and teachers associations. Innovations, such as, Mentoring, Peer In-Service, Peer-Tutoring, Subject Lead-Teachers and Cluster Lead-Teachers approaches should be adopted so as to afford continuing professional education opportunities to teachers.
