Group trains Nigerians in leadership skills, self-development
Another rewards members with cars, launches new product
The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award organised its first Supervisors and Assessors Training (SAT) for Award Leaders in various institutions and organisations in the country to prepare them for adventures around the world.
This is to equip Nigerians with the requisite knowledge and leadership skills, as well as help them to better develop themselves.
The three-day training, which was held at the National Award Office, Lekki, Lagos, had 25 award leaders from different states in attendance. It is a global achievement award for young people from diverse backgrounds with the aim of equipping them to succeed in life.
It is also aimed at inspiring, guiding and supporting them in self-development through recognition of their talents.
While addressing participants, National Director of International Award for Young People Nigeria, Toyin Odu, said, “The Award Leaders training for supervisors is designed to give them a broader view of the adventurous and expeditionary journey.
“It would also enhance the role of expedition supervisors and assessors to ensure the safety and security of young people while on an expedition.”
Noting that it would also prepare them to be Assessors for the Qualifying Adventurous Journey at Bronze, Silver and Gold levels, Odu said the training also involved sessions that tested the participant’s knowledge of the programme and introduced them to the various roles in an adventurous journey.
One of the award leaders said the knowledge would help him to meet life’s challenges, adding, “The training would help me become a better teacher, award leader and parent.”
The award has been held in over 110 institutions and organisations across the country and over 12,000 young people have so far participated in it. The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award was founded in 1956 by Prince Philip and is available to young people between the ages of 14 to 24 years.
Meanwhile, the Global Help Integrated Alliance Limited, has rewarded loyal members with cars during the official launch of a new global e-product -Global Net Fund from Global Network Fund.
It is expected to assist members of the public to become financially stable and independent.
The event, which held at Awka Hall, Festac Town, Lagos, witnessed an impressive turnout of people from all walks of life, including businessmen and politicians.
Its Chief Executive Officer, Mrs. Eunice Ocheja, said the cars were used to reward diligent members, who qualified in the last three to six months of doing business with the firm and assured that other qualifying members would soon get their cars in Abuja.
