“The Teacher Knowledge Test (TKT) increases teachers’ confidence by focusing on the core teaching knowledge needed by teachers of primary, secondary or adult learners, anywhere in the world,” British Council Nigeria said on its official website.
For the participating teachers, it said it would help them to understand different teaching methods.
