Abstract:

This EDOREN report outlines 10-year projections of the number of teachers required in Primary and Junior Secondary Schools (JSS) in Zamfara, the likely supply of teachers to the school system and suggestions for improving teacher recruitment and deployment. It has been produced for the Department of International Development (DFID) – funded Teacher Development Programme (TDP) by Education Data, Research and Evaluation in Nigeria (EDOREN). The report seeks to support TDPs efforts to work with the State Government and Colleges of Education (CoEs) to ensure Zamfara has an adequate number of appropriately trained teachers in its basic education system.
