The World Education Forum in Dakar in 2000 did not only emphasize the need to achieve education for all, but also noticed the need to improve the quality of education. Teachers play a key role in providing quality education. To effectively provide this, teachers require critical competence and skills, including knowledge of substantive areas and programme outline; pedagogic skill, including the acquisition and ability to use a repertoire of teaching strategies; reflection and ability to be self-critical, which are regarded as the hallmarks of teaching professionalism; empathy and commitment to the acknowledgement of the dignity of others as well as managerial competence, as they assume a range of managerial responsibilities within and outside the classroom. However, it is generally agreed that the quality of education in Nigeria and by inference, teacher quality, has declined significantly over time. For teachers to develop and maintain this competence, it is important that teacher education goes beyond initial teacher training and that teachers continually receive in-service training and professional development so as to keep them abreast of recent developments, broaden their skills and knowledge and obtain continuous support for the improvement of their teaching activities. This workshop is therefore designed to expose secondary school teachers to critical managerial competence to enhance their effective functioning.
