NAPS Warns Schools from diverting Psychometric fee, encourage students to embrace the course.
Solidarity Greetings from National Association Of Polytechnic Students (NAPS), the umbrella body that represents over 20.1millions Polytechnic Students in Nigeria and in Diaspora.
It has come to the notice of the Leadership of National Association Of Polytechnic Students (NAPS) the negligent attitude of some polytechnic management towards the newly introduced course by NBTE, titled Pyschometric Studies which is GNS106 and GNS107. Pyschometric Studies is concerned with the objectives measurement of skills, knowlege, abilities, attitudes and personality traits. It helps to reveal the cognitive capacity of an individual before taking to making a life-changing educational decision by revealing the sustainability of an individual or students to a particular field of study. This course is far beyond mere or local politics, which polytechnic management should embraced. Hence, the polytechnic students shouldn’t be deprived from such course and opportunities embeded. NAPS Leadership hereby call on the Polytechnic Management to give adequate attention to this course and linkup with International Psychometric Centre, Ibadan for a proper and adequate
involvement inline with NBTE mandate without any iota of delay for the interest of the polytechnic students.
The Leadership of NAPS beseech all the Polytechnic Management to desist from fund diversion of the pyschometric payment to the School account or either. Pyscometric Fee should be remitted to the International Psychometric Centre(IPC) account as at when due to avoid unnecessary issue from the students community. Moreso, the management should ensure accountability as to avoid crisis that might want to emanate from students deprivation from the course. The Course is an online course which should not be taken as class work in other for maximum involvement and participation of the Students to Fulfill the aims and objectives of the International Psychometric Centre.
It’s on this note that the leadership of NAPS, urge all the polytechnic management who are yet
to implement the psychometric studies as stated and directed by the NBTE to do so at the right
time for the general good of all polytechnic students in Nigeria
