Edo SUBEB was established as a Parastatal as enshrined in the National UBE Act of 2004. The Edo State UBE law was signed in 2005. The UBE Act 2004 makes provision for basic education comprising of Early Childhood Care Education (ECCE), Primary and Junior Secondary Education. The current Board was reconstituted by H.E. Comrade Adams Oshiomhole on September 26, 2013 and their tenure will end on September 25, 2017.

Our Vision

Our Mission

The Edo State SUBEB has 18 Field Offices called Local Government Education Authorities (LGEAs) with one in each Local Government Area. By law, each LGEA ought to have a Part-Time Chairman, Part-Time members as well as the Secretaries who are public servants on full time basis. The LGEAs are currently not constituted by the Local Government Councils as only the Education Secretaries who are full time are currently playing the role of the heads of the Local Education Authorities. The disproportionate focus on infrastructure over the years was at the expense of improving quality learning through teacher professional development, provision of adequate learning materials and strengthening quality assurance. 13years after it was established, SUBEB is now undergoing restructuring to address various challenges and shortcomings including expanding its interventions beyond infrastructure, enrollments and expenditures to address fundamental questions of vision and implementation.

EdoBEST@Home is a signature initiative of the Edo State Government to ensure that every child in the state can continue learning while schools are not open. The government recognises that these are unprecedented circumstances caused by the coronavirus that require bold and unprecedented solutions.

Through EdoBEST@Home the government will be providing a revolutionary multichannel learning solution based on the same child-centred, scientifically-based approach that we have pioneered with EdoBEST, and will allow students to continue to prepare against the curriculum.

EdoBEST@Home will include multiple hours of daily interactive audio lessons, self-study activity packets available free online without data charges, mobile interactive quizzes available on your phone for each age group, age-appropriate story books available on your phone, and virtual interactions with teachers.
