The technical and Vocational Education institutions In Nigeria have been on increase these days than before because of the high rate of unemployment. It is every child’s right to be educated because education opens doors of opportunities. The overall education that supports a ‘just getting of the certificate’ has been shifted recently to that part of the training that hinges on citizen’s ability to get trained on what he or she can do with his hands which are known as the acquisition of skills in a very conducive environment.
Readington School has leveraged on this. Our pupils have the opportunity to be well-trained in vocational skills, along with their academics.
