Osun State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) has organised a five-day training and capacity building for Quality Assurance Officers of SUBEB, Local Government Education Authorities and Zonal Inspectors of Education in the state.

The workshop, it was gathered, was aimed at ensuring delivery of quality basic education in the state, especially in the area of quality assurance.

Declaring the workshop open, Chairman of Osun SUBEB, Prince Felix Awofisayo, said the board put in place the training in order to make sure that the quality of education matches the standard around the world, adding that the board will not rest on its oars in achieving the desired goal.

Awofisayo admonished the participants not to see themselves as spare tyres but ensure that the standard of education was properly monitored so that it will not come to nothing at the end of the day.

He explained that the capacity building was in recognition of the fact that highly skilled manpower was needed for the quality of delivery of basic education.

While commending the giant stride recorded in the education sector by the administration of Rauf Aregbesola, he noted that the state government was determined to reform education sector in particular in elementary and middle schools which, he said, form the foundation phase of educational growth and development.
