Governor Obaseki launched the Edo Supporting Teachers to Achieve Results (EdoStar) Teaching Fellows Programme to ensure quality teaching and learning in public schools in Edo State.
This is a 3-year intensive training and field experience employment program for teachers and aspiring teachers who will be transited into the Edo State Public Service upon satisfactory job performance.
