Polytechnic Scheme Of Service Ready Soon

Head of Service of the Federation (HoSF), Dr. Folasade Yemi-Esan, has said the scheme of service of polytechnics in Nigeria would be released soon.

Yemi-Esan stated this in Abuja yesterday when he received the executive secretary of the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE), Prof. Idris Bugaje in her office.

She said work had been concluded but for one area of contention which was addressed during the courtesy visit by the NBTE boss.

The HoSF, who expressed satisfaction with the working relationship with the NBTE, promised that the Public Service Institute of Nigeria (PSIN) would soon begin the process of the accreditation of its courses by the NBTE.

She revealed funds had been provided for the accreditation of courses of two of the six Federal Training Centres (FTCs) while efforts were on to ensure that all FTCs have full accreditation with NBTE.

Earlier, Bugaje expressed appreciation to the HoSF for the approval of levels one to six out of the nine levels of the National Skills Qualification (NSQ).

Bugaje pointed out that the action had placed Nigeria on the global skills landscape.


The executive secretary described the HoSF as “Mother of Skills in Nigeria” for her critical role in ensuring the approval of NSQ levels one to six at the National Council on Establishment (NCE) meeting.
