Sustainable Development Goals
Goal-4 - Sustainable Development Goals

In addressing the 2030 Development Agenda successes, UNESCO emphasized that education is the major key to achieving the development agenda. This implies that efforts must be geared towards ensuring that the Sustainable Development Goals are provided with operational tools to aid implementation success. .

At the 2016 World teacher’s Day, the UNESCO Chief in her message noted that the road map for the new agenda, the Education 2030 Framework for Action, should highlight the fact that teachers are fundamental for equitable and quality education and, as such, must be “adequately trained, recruited and remunerated, motivated and supported within well-resourced, efficient and effectively governed systems”.

The UNESCO Center for Global Education in commitment to the SDG - 4 and Targets enacted a call to action on Education Solutions to provide education and skills to help teachers, school proprietors and principals, education directors and administrators work their standing mission along with the new goals in responding to the global vision as proclaimed by world leaders.

Acting on this, the first education and training for SDG - 4 and targets on Education Solutions focused on the current school mission of participating school heads (Principals) and process of upgrading the missions to the new agenda. The training re-emphasized through in depth training on character and leadership Education, hands on school mission and practical group discussion was conducted.Issues raised from the two groups highlighted the following;

  • School infrastructures
  • Technology Education and resources
  • Human development
