FG To Introduce Tourism In School Curriculum
The Deputy Director, Domestic Tourism in the Federal Ministry of Information and Culture, Patricia Narai, said plans had been concluded to introduce tourism as a subject at senior secondary school level.
Ms. Narai said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria on Tuesday in Abuja.
“The Nigerian Educational Development Council has proposed 34 trades and identified tourism as one of the trades to be thought at the entrepreneurship level.
“So students from SS I to SS III will soon start studying tourism and at that level they can come out successful and establish a tourism business of their own.
“And they can also further their education on that line.
“What is left now is the approval, and am sure that soon, the curriculum will be out and the students will start studying tourism,” Ms. Narai said.
