500 NTIC Teachers For 2018 Annual Workshop In Abuja


In its drive to have quality teachers, the Nigerian Tulip International College (NTIC), last Thursday said 500 of its teachers had been listed for the 2018/2019 academic session annual Teachers Workshop scheduled for Abuja.
Principal, NTIC, Ogun State Chapter, Mr Ercan Yilmaz told newsmen in Lagos that the workshop would hold between August 27 and August 31.
Yilmaz said external resource persons were invited to train the teachers who were drawn from all the branches of the schools across the federation.
He explained that the workshop had been designed to equip the teachers with knowledge, attitudes, behaviors and skills they require to perform their tasks effectively in the classroom, school and wider community.
The principal noted that some of the topics outlined for the training included English phonology: stress pattern, psychology in classroom, pragmatic ways of teaching grammatical names and functions, differentiated learning and Pros and Cons among others.
According to him, it was also a platform designed by the school to integrate newly recruited teachers with the older teachers to enable them learn from their vast knowledge and experience.
“The workshop which is an annual programme, is an avenue for our teachers to collaborate in a bid to share knowledge, assess their work in previous sessions and examine the work for the new session.
“This is to enable them to learn and adopt improved methods of teaching and impacting knowledge both from the resource persons and older colleagues,” he said.
Yilmaz said the teachers were expected to write an examination at the end of the workshop and would be assessed by an examiner to determine their proficiency and area of improvement if need be.
“Our policy is that our teachers who are expected to teach the students must first undergo an examination to determine their proficiency because it is what you know that you can teach.
“Such teachers’ examinations are repeated in our local chapters three times a year and teachers are expected to always perform better than in their previous assessment,” he said.
Newsmen reports that Nigerian Tulip International College was formerly Nigerian Turkish International College with 16 branches across Abuja, Lagos, Ogun, Kano, Kaduna and Yobe.
