Some members of the N-Power Teacher Corps Programme will be deployed nationally to instruct on:
- Civic Education
- Adult Education.
Civic Education is imperative for the development of an informed, effective, and responsible citizenry. Nigeria can only be truly sustained by citizens who have the requisite civic knowledge, skills, and dispositions. The programme will focus on the core values that are vital to nation building such as promoting patriotism, integrity, productivity, ethics, and efficiency. Civic education is essential to sustaining our objectives to build a strong and competitive nation.
The habits of the mind, as well as “habits of the heart,” the dispositions that inform the national ethos, are not inherited. Each new generation is a new people that must acquire the knowledge, learn the skills, and develop the dispositions or traits of private and public character that undergird a productive nation and a constitutional democracy. Those dispositions must be fostered and nurtured by word and study and by the power of example.
The values that build a nation must be consciously reproduced, one generation after another. This is what the programme intends to inspire in our nation through the N-Power Community Education instructors.
Adult Education will provide instruction that enables young as well as mature adults (above 18 years) to improve or supplement their knowledge and skills within general subjects. From literacy to numeracy, to other skills, this programme will also enhance adults’ ability to improve their future job and educational possibilities. The target group to benefit from the instruction are young as well as mature adults who have no formal education or have never completed junior secondary education or who have a need to improve or supplement their basic education.
In addition, successful applicants will also benefit from a compulsory employability and entrepreneurship skills development programme.
