Another batch of female graduates of the Female Teachers Trainee Scholarship Scheme (FTTSS), designed by UNICEF, DFID in collaboration with Katsina state are to get automatic teaching employment in the state.
According to Vanguard, this was revealed by the Chairman of Katsina State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), Mallam Lawal Buahri Daura today. Daura stated this while confirming that the governor of the state, Aminu Bello Masari has approved the recruitment of the graduates as part of a proposed 1900 teachers recruitment to be made in the state.
FTTSS was a program designed to increase enrollment of the female child up to National Certificate of Education, NCE after which they are employed and deployed to teach in their various communities.
The SUBEB Chairman said the project is a two way thing as it has helped to address low female child enrollment in schools and at the same time help to address lack of qualified teachers in the rural communities as the candidates upon completion of the NCE program are employed and deployed back to their communities to teach.
