The Nigerian Educational System

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.

Interactive Learning in Nigerian Primary Schools

The advancement in technology has brought a relevant change to the primary school curriculum in Nigeria.  In order to equip Nigerian students for 21st century education, its government is gearing its sight towards meeting the challenges of making their syllabus more responsive and pertinent to modern education. School books that are products of innovation are being introduced to primary schools to enhance student learning.

The Universal Basic Series of books were created for that same purpose. Its provider envisions producing empowered pupils that are ready to take on bigger challenges as they prepare for secondary school. Hence, these learning materials are designed for interactive learning so that young minds will be trained for higher level thinking. It covers a wide range of topics that are meticulously sequenced to allow interlinked and progressive learning.

Developing The Potentials Of A Primary School Pupil

One of the most important stages in schooling is the primary education.  The necessity of a good primary education program cannot be taken lightly because this is where the basics are laid and develop. When the foundation principles are not properly taught or assimilated during these years, children will have difficulty understanding the more complicated lessons in secondary school or at the university. Worse, students will no longer be confident to take higher education simply because they find the lessons too difficult to understand.

On the other hand, a solid foundation prepares the student to tackle higher education with confidence. Learning materials that comply to set standards of educations like the Universal Basic Series are great tools that could empower students toward excellence. These books feature innovations that are aimed to hone the primary students’ potentials to the maximum. With the implementation of the UBE curriculum, primary school books in Nigeria should be created in line with its requirements.
