Dr. Kazaure, while congratulating the polytechnic on the approval, stated that the polytechnic is allowed to run all accredited programmes for the award of the National Diploma and Higher National Diploma programmes.
He charged the institution to develop an interactive online e-learning platform for the ODFEL with tools and resources to support and enhance education delivery and management that would enable the students to participate actively in the programme.
The executive secretary stressed that the approval of OSPOLY as a centre is as a result of the institution’s involvement in the Flexible and Blended Skills Development, facilitated by Commonwealth of Learning (Col) and its participation in the ODFEL trainings, seminars and workshops.
