The Chartered Insurance Institute of Nigeria (CIIN), has implored insurance professionals to volunteer as teachers and lecturers, so as to cover for the dearth of Insurance teachers and lecturers in the nation’s academic institutions.
President of the CIIN, Lady Isioma Chukwuma, said this today, at a press parly in Lagos, adding that the Institute has aided in the study and teaching of Insurance by providing support to Institutions across the country through donation of course books, equipping libraries with study materials and equipment.
She noted that the institute’s Train-the-Trainer programme was designed for the upscaling of Insurance education and to ensure that insurance teachers possess the required skills for imparting the necessary knowledge to the future generation of insurance practitioners.
She said the programme was first carried out in Lagos and Ogun States and has since been replicated in other parts of the country, stressing that the institute is presently engaging some states that it had visited to fashion out modalities to host the programme in such states.
She posited that the Train-the-Trainer programme has been well received and many states have shown enthusiasm in partnering with the Institute and the College in this regard.
“The Institute has also aided in the study and teaching of Insurance by providing support to Institutions across the country through donation of course books, equipping libraries with study materials and equipment and also by imploring insurance professionals to volunteer as teachers and lecturers in Institutions so as to cover for the dearth of Insurance teachers and lecturers in our Institutions,” she said.
