Bayelsa SUBEB visits schools, lauds BayelsaPRIME


BayelsaPRIME, a technology based basic education reform programme, is aimed at delivering dramatic improvements in learning outcomes in public schools across Bayelsa state, writes Oluchi Chibuzor

As the sun rose on Monday 30, January 2023 in Trofani town Bayelsa state, primary school pupils, teachers and headteachers also rose in anticipation of a new term and beginning. Teachers were particularly excited yet apprehensive about the prospect of the new start.

Two weeks before resumption day, over 2,000 teachers and headteachers drawn from four local government areas had been in Yenagoa for a special reason. They were at the BayelsaPRIME Induction Training which kickstarted Governor Douye Diri’s basic education reform programme.

Coined out of the words Bayelsa Promoting Reform to Improve & Modernise Education, BayelsaPRIME is designed to cause a major transformation in the way classes are conducted and how pupils across the pilot 222 primary schools receive learning.

The induction training provided an opportunity to upskill teachers and steer their energies in the direction of a whole new methodology which has been proven to deliver exceptional results, especially in low income and minority communities.
