Lagos calls for global best practices on standard education


The Lagos State Office of Education Quality Assurance has called for global best practices in the quality on standard education in the state.

Abiola Seriki-Ayeni, the Director General of the agency, on Thursday during a two-day training programme at the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Alausa, Ikeja.

The event: ‘Standardisation and its impact on quality regulatory process and the adoption of best global practices,’ was organised in partnership with a tech firm, GUUT Technologies.

Seriki-Ayeni, in her opening address, commended the tech company for collaborating with the government on the project.

She said: “This training seeks to set the stage for the adoption of global practices with regard to regulatory processes using standardisation as a springboard as espoused by our theme, which l find appropriate at this time.

“In the context of quality education, this training is significant given the relevance of standardisation in regulatory processes. Progress in the education sector is determined largely by the commitment and adoption of global best practices.”

The DG commended the state Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, for supporting and inventing education and investing in the sector.

She said the agency had also been strengthening quality control and regulation of public and private schools in Lagos through monitoring and evaluation.

“In the last three years, the Office of Education Quality Assurance has initiated a lot of laudable programmes to enhance the standard of education in Lagos State.

“We have also engaged in data validation exercise of all private schools operating in Lagos. We have been collating data from both public and private schools, as well as teachers in the state towards effective monitoring and quality assurance.”
