Adebule made the call at the reception of the delegation of United Kingdom teachers to the “British Council Connecting Classrooms Initiative” in Lagos.
She said such collaboration would enhance performance, administrative efficiency and build up the state’s schools to global standard.
“Since the resumption of this administration, we have been committed to implementing new policy initiatives such as the 360 degrees education initiative in public schools, geared towards the expansion and improvement of our children’s education.
“This explains why the huge percentage of the budget was committed to education sector to improve infrastructure, teaching methods and staff quality toward achieving better performance.
“But government alone cannot do it.
“The collaboration of all education stakeholders is required to achieve maximum success.
“This is why we cherish partnership and contributions of the British Council toward the development of education in the state and we urge other organisations to emulate them.”
In her remarks, Adetoun Shoyinka, the Director of Education and Skill of the British Council Connecting Classrooms Initiative, said the council realised the high attention the state government is giving to education.
Shoyinka said: “The council, therefore, is ready to partner with the state government on continual improvements in terms of infrastructure, human capacity and improved teaching and learning methods.
“The state’s education sector has been a model to other states in Nigeria.
“This is why the council is partnering with the government to help sustain that development and retain its position as role model to other states.”
The Connecting Classrooms Initiative is a partnership programme between the British Council and the Lagos State Government.
The initiative commenced in 2015 and will run through 2018 with the aim of building the capacity of teachers to integrate 21st century skills into curriculum to improve learning outcomes and the education sector.
