the The NPDC/Seplat Petroleum Development Company joint ventures have trained 200 teachers and six Chief Inspectors of Education (CIEs) in Edo and Delta States with the aim of improving the standard of teaching and learning.
Speaking in Benin at the launch ceremony of the second edition of the NPDC/Seplat Teachers Empowerment Program (STEM) 2021, Director, External Affairs and Sustainability for Seplat, Dr Chioma Nwachukwu, said there is a need for teachers to be equipped with modern teaching techniques to improve their performance in the classrooms.
Represented by Ms. Esther Icha, Manager, Corporate Social Responsibility for Seplat, Nwachukwu said the training was designed to empower teachers to access the Seplat Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) app.
She urged the beneficiaries to make judicious use of what they have been taught and to be good ambassadors for Seplat.
Chief Inspector of Education, Mrs. EJoma Emiliana, a beneficiary from Oshimili South, Delta State, described the training as an ocean of opportunity for her, while Godfrey Edobholo of the Federal Science and Technical College, Uromi, Edo State, said Seplat’s empowerment program will help secure the future of children in the state.
Commending the efforts of the organization in the education sector, the Permanent Secretary of the Edo State Ministry of Education, Ms. Stella Imasuen, represented by Ms. Ojekhoa Kushe, Executive Director of Science Education, professional and technical, said Seplat’s mandate was in line with the Edo government’s vision for education in the state.
