Curriculum Implementation and Re-Training of Teachers in English Language: Pre-Conditions for Functional Nigerian Educational System

  • RF Adebile


The educational system in Nigeria today has been largely imported. This is
because no one country is self-reliant without utilizing other countries’
technologies and good educational ideals. A consideration of a stable and
functional educational system should involve consistent re-training of
teachers for efficient implementation of the curriculum for Nigerian schools.
Consistent development and re-training of teachers in English language will
improve capability of teachers for efficient use of the curriculum, being the
implementers of the educational programmes. As such, there is the need for
teachers’ re-training programmes and adequate supply of human and
material resources for educational productivity and consolidation of the
Nigerian educational system. It is the concern of this paper to consider the
concept of training and re-training of teachers in English language, efficient
curriculum implementation by professionally trained teachers and
curriculum innovation for qualitative teaching outcome.
