Council conducts pilot study on 34 trade subjects

Nigerian Educational Research and Development Council (NERDC) has conducted the first in-service teacher training workshop on the pilot-testing of the revised 34 trade subject curriculum and Teachers’ Guide in Abuja.

Executive Secretary of the council, Professor Ismail Junaidu said the training which involved teachers from Adamawa, Bauchi and Gombe states was meant to excellently implement the revised trade and entrepreneurship curriculum.  “The workshop is to quant you with relevant strategies and techniques for effective teaching of the contents.”


He said the implementation of the 34 trade subject curriculum began in 2011 but was revised because there was the need to update the contents and that feedback received revealed that the trade subjects were devoid of core entrepreneurship contents “which were fundamental in our drive to making our school leavers job creators and wealth generators.”

He said the review of the curriculum was done in partnership with United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO) with funding support from the government of Japan.  Also, the council and UNIDO “secured funding from the government of Japan for trialing of the curricula in 3 Northeast states under the Promoting Social Stabilization through Entrepreneurship Development for Youth in the Northeast.”


Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Japan, Yukaka Kikuta said his government provided funding for the project to promote entrepreneurship among Nigerian Youth.
