Firm provides training for teachers
In line with its corporate social responsibility (CSR) culture, a leading provider of business and IT support solutions, Tek Experts, has upgraded the skills of 17 lecturers from the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) at the Train The Teachers Foundation’s quarterly learning session and training programme organised by TTNF and WhyBlueSky to advance the sector.
Consistent with the Tek Experts Malta-to-Nigeria project which seeks to improve the level of technical expertise, the Country Manager, Ognyan Kiryakov, noted that the firm’s backing “is driven by the desire and passion to invest in talent and support its growth and development.”
He continued: “Nigeria is often referred to as the ‘Giant of Africa’ and there is so much potential talent that could benefit from that extra level of support to be the best it can. This talent can be found in schools, workplaces and even among young entrepreneurs. Tek Experts Malta decided to support the development of talent by investing in the education sector and that’s why we sponsored 17 teachers from the prestigious Obafemi Awolowo University. The programme will enable them improve their skills and become better equipped for the modern day classroom.”
The CEO of The Teaching Network Foundation, Dr. Dolapo Ogunbanwo, said the session was to provide continued professional development programmes for teaching professionals in the country.
Ogunbanwo commended Tek Experts for the support and partnership, noting that the gesture was worthy of emulation.
The CEO of WhyBlueSky, Agata Wilam, urged the participants to effectively deploy the fresh knowledge and skills they have got from the programme.
A beneficiary and Vice Principal of Moremi High School, Obafemi Awolowo, described the training as “hugely beneficial.”
