UNILORIN Concludes Plans To Offer Free Adult Education Programme & Free Counseling Services

As part of its social service mandate to its host community, the Institute of Education (IOE), University of Ilorin (Unilorin), has concluded plans to provide free Adult Education programme and render free counseling services to inhabitants of Ilorin and its environs before the end of this year.
The Director of the Institute, Prof. Mudashiru Yusuf, who made this known in an interview with Unilorin Bulletin, said that efforts are on to bring back the self-sustaining extramural classes for candidates who have been failing in public examinations like the UTME and WAEC.
Pointing out that the programme will be carried out as a social service, Prof. Yusuf said its cost would be within the means of members of the University's host community.
The Professor of Educational Technology highlighted some of the plans of the Institute as including the expansion of opportunities to accommodate more students through the establishment of certain Diploma programmes such as Human Kinetics and Health Education, Instructional Radio and Television, Art and Craft, Photography for School Certificate holders as well as the HND conversion programme.
Prof. Yusuf explained that the Institute's mandate is to add value to the socio-economic development of the host community.
He said, “The University is already doing it and we as a Faculty and the Institute of Education are collaborating to ensure that before the end of the year, we are going to mount free of charge, adult education programme for the people within Ilorin environment.”
The IOE Director said, “We are planning a Community Counselling Centre, which is going to be a free service by the University”.
He pointed out that there are counseling issues on marital affairs, academic matters, job issues, mental health issues, and teenage affairs, adding that “there are experts to address these issues”.
He disclosed that these services will be sited on the mini-campus where the IOE is located.
The Director further stated that there would be collaboration between the Counselling Unit and the Centre for Supportive Services for the Deaf (CSSD), the Department of Health Education and even the College of Health Sciences for the overall benefit of the community.
