No fewer than 69 graduands of the Corona College of Education (CCED) Ilupeju, Lagos, were conferred with the Nigeria Certificate in Education (NCE) and Professional Diploma in Education (PDE) at the 2nd Convocation ceremony of the institution.

The Provost of the college, Dr Martin Obinyan said the college was the first to deploy technology for its academic activities and has completed its programmes within the set time frame despite all odds.

Dr Obinyan urged the graduands to remain worthy ambassadors of the college and carry along with them the discipline, values and skills that they hav developed while at the institution.

According to him, those values would help shape their future. Chairman of the college, Mr Sulaiman Adedotun, while congratulating the graduating students and awardees said CCED was established almost a decade ago to contribute to building teacher capacity in the country primarily through continuous professional development programmes. 

He also appealed to the Federal and state Governments to recognise and support private educators as partners in progress of the noble cause.

The Registrar and Chief Executive Officer, Teachers’ Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN), Prof Olusegun Ajiboye, applauded the CCED staff, and its management for always observing the TRCN induction protocol.

Ajiboye went on to acknowledge the government, educational administrators and stakeholders in the industry for being proactive as they employed technology to breach the gap in the teaching and learning process during the COVID 19 lockdown. 

The TRCN chief declared the college as one of the best private schools in the country and as an ICT compliant college because of its adaptation of the e-learning platform to run its programmes during the pandemic crisis.   He advised the inductees to guide and guard the profession jealously as penalty awaits anyone found wanting.
