The Nigerian educational system is divided into three sectors: the first nine years (primary to junior secondary) being the basic, the next three years is called the post basic or senior secondary and then after that the tertiary phase. The basic education curriculum is aimed at providing children a solid foundation for scientific knowledge and critical thinking as well as laying the framework for permanent literacy. Alongside with these goals is the honing of life skills that makes these children grow to be responsible and respectable citizens in the community.
The nine-year basic education program is based on the Universal Basic Education curriculum which Nigeria has adapted in its bid to uplift the country’s standard of learning and be part of the global development for best practices in education. This means that all books in basic education are created in line with the UBE standards. Learning materials like First Veritas’ Junior Secondary Titles, Universal Basic Series, Pinwheel Series, and the Smart Kids Series are no exception. They were all meticulously designed not only to comply with the regulations but to better equip Nigerian children for global competitiveness.
