Team Work and Commitment
UBE programmes are implemented through close collaborative partnerships between UBEC and State Universal Basic Education Boards (SUBEBs), Local Government Education Authorities (LGEAs) and Basic Education stakeholders at all levels. UBEC is delighted to be at the forefront of this significant national intervention and welcomes the full involvement of all individuals, corporate entities, civil societies and community groups in the drive to achieve Education for All (EFA) and the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) by 2015.
UBE programme activities have led to:
Transformation of the educational terrain as it affects basic education in the area of school infrastructural development. This has been achieved through judicious use of FGN-UBE intervention funds. For the first time Basic Education has a quantum of funds being pumped in by Federal and State Governments.
Improved infrastructural developments led to increased access to basic education.
Teacher Professional Development being accorded priority attention as a percentage of the intervention fund goes directly to in-service training of teachers in all States and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
Education of the girl-child and other disadvantaged groups being given greater attention than ever before.
