NIGERIAN CERTIFICATE IN EDUCATION PROGRAMMES (NCE)

The Nigerian Certificate in Education (N.C.E.) is a special A-Level grade Course intended for Secondary school leavers or their equivalent.

On the one hand, it is taken as an A-Level Course because it upgrades the knowledge of its student to an A-Level standard in the particular subject of his/her choice; while on the other hand it is referred to as SPECIAL A-level because it also equips the students with the Technics and methodologies of TEACHING.

Presently, N.T.I. offers the following combination in line with the N.C.E. recommendations:

  1. Primary Education Studies / Cultural/Creative Arts
  2. Primary Education Studies / English Language
  3. Primary Education Studies / Mathematics
  4. Primary Education Studies / Islamic Religious Studies

OBJECTIVES OF THE N.C.E. (DLS) PROGRAMMES

The National Policy on Education prescribes that the NCE Certificate shall be the minimum qualification for all teachers in our schools.

However, in spite of the efforts of several states aimed at producing enough qualified teachers to meet the target requirement of the policy, Nigeria is yet to adequately address the problem of the shortage of qualified teachers.

The NCE by Distant Learning (DLS) has therefore come to serve as one of the most cost-effective strategies for over-coming this problem nation-wide.

PIVOTAL TEACHERS' TRAINING PROGRAMME (PTTP)

The Pivotal Teachers' Training Programme is a special O-Level grade teaching Course that is meant to equipt the unqualified teachers in our Primary / Junior secondary Schools with the BASIC TEACHING SKILLS necessary to assist in the achievement of the objectives of the Universal Basic Education (UBE).

The N.C.E. Certificate has been proclaimed as the MINIMUM Qualification for Teaching in our Schools. However, the duration of the NCE Course is 3 to 4 years. In order to immediately equipt the large number of the unqualified teachers in our public schools with the basic teaching skills, the Federal Government mandated NTI to resuscitate the PTTP which is just a one year Teachers' Professional Course pending their acquisition of the NCE Qualification.

PTTP, the shortest and most cost-effective way for the conversion of unqualified Primary school Teachers to full professionalism

TECHNICAL TEACHERS' TRAINING PROGRAMME (TTTP)

The National Policy on Education prescribes that the NCE Certificate shall be the minimum qualification for all teachers in our schools.

However, in spite of the efforts of several states aimed at producing enough qualified teachers to meet the target requirement of the policy, Nigeria is yet to adequately address the problem of the shortage of qualified teachers.

The NCE by Distant Learning (DLS) has therefore come to serve as one of the most cost-effective strategies for over-coming this problem nation-wide.

TEACHERS' CONTINUOUS PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME (CPD)

CPD consists of any educational activity which helps to maintain, develop or increase knowledge, problem-solving skills or professional competence all with the goal that the particular professional can provide better service to his/her clients. Most professional bodies make CPD mandatory for their members annually.

N.T.I., in pursuance of its mandate, has seriously embraced the idea of CPD for the Nigerian Teachers. To this end, NTI, on request from the Local, State or Federal Government through their various agencies, organises periodic courses, conferences and workshops to expose existing teachers to new technics and professional standards thereby continually upholding the standard of education in the country.
Any Education Authority that does not embrace CPD, would only have a decayed teaching staff its domain.

STRENGTHENING OF MATHEMATICS AND SCIENCE EDUCATION (SMASE) PROGRAMME

The overall development of any nation depends on the level of its acquisition and application of the knowledge of Science and Technology. It is with this in mind that the Federal Government of Nigeria in partnership with the Japanese Government setup the SMASE Programme in Nigeria for the benefit of Nigeria and Nigerians.

NTI is mandated to setup an International Standard Training centre, organize / co-ordinate the trainings nation-wide and liaise with the relevant Governments, Ministries, Institutes and Agencies for the smooth execution of the SMASE programme.

SMASE is a GROUP training on the aquisition of special skills and methodologies for the teaching of Mathematics and Science Education. It is a "TRAIN THE TRAINER" Course whereby the participants are trained in NTI and are expected to go back to their individual states to serve as trainers to other teachers.
Any Education Authority that does not have competent Mathematics / Science Teachers in its domain, is doomed to perfectual educational and/or technological backwardness
