No fewer than 100 staff of the Federal Polytechnic Oko, Anambra State, have undergone training on Information and Communication Technology (ICT) aimed at empowering them for greater productivity.
NEWS FLAKES NG reports that the five–day programme was mounted by the ICT giant, Tenece Professional Services Limited and was sponsored by the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund).
Director of TETFund in the institution, Dr Chioma Awuzie, the aim of the capacity building programme, which drew participants from both the teaching and non-teaching staff of the Polytechnic, was to keep them abreast of the modern technology in teaching and learning, as well as acquaint them with the new technology and growing trend to integrate ICT into education.
NEWS FLAKES NG gathered that the training programme was organized in stages. While the first stage was on web upgrade, the second was tailored towards improving the ICT skills of the participants.
The Rector of Federal Polytechnic, Oko, Dr Francisca Nwafulugo, while appreciating TETFund for the commitment in ensuring quality education in the country through capacity building, observed that Federal Polytechnic, Oko was one of the beneficiaries of the Federal government’s intervention programme through TETFund.
She said: “I am privileged to have benefited a lot from TETfund since I assumed office a year and seven months ago. Last month, we commissioned a gigantic building and an ultra-modern multipurpose hall at the extension site of the Polytechnic, courtesy of TETFund.
“Very soon, two more other buildings, including the Bio and Renewable Energy department will be commissioned, while foundation laying stone of the department of Chemical Engineering and other critical infrastructure will be laid soon, all coming from TETFund.
“Also, virtually all the technical departments in the institution, including Engineering departments, Science Laboratory Technology (SLT), Mass Communication, among others that have laboratories have all been equipped by the intervention agency, the TETFund.”
The Rector noted that the training was an opportunity for staff to gain in depth knowledge on the best practices and ways of using ICT to support education and make the participants to understand the best applications, web platforms and ICT solutions for teachers and other staff.
