Teachers’ Conference NG
A project by Striving for Greatness EdTech Initiative
Building Nigerian teachers capacity through professional development at zero cost for quality education. Reached 4 states, 50+ schools, trained 250+ teachers.
The initiative aims to bridge the knowledge, skills and professional development gap among Nigerian Teachers at all levels. The conference is dedicated to supporting and building the capacity of Nigerian teachers and school leaders in delivering transformative, quality and efficient education to help learners develop core skills such as critical thinking, communication, creativity, collaboration and problem-solving. The team consists of passionate youths, professionals in the EdTech industry and academia in collaboration with schools and national professional bodies. The initiative has been consistently supported by the Google Geo Edu team since its maiden edition in 2017. The project started by training Nigerian students as we saw the pressing need to empower them with relevant 21st-century skills. This later evolved into engaging and empowering teachers and admin to empower the students with skills that makes them relevant in today's workplace and prepares the future. We take Professional Development Opportunity to teachers across states in Nigeria at zero cost. The conference is packaged with keynotes, hands-on training sessions, thought-provoking and wake-up interactions through panel discussions and networking opportunity. Many initiatives supporting and advocating for SDG4 focus on approaches like distributing materials, building schools, and increasing enrollment. While all these matters and have impactful effects, they don't address the fundamental needs and purpose of quality education. Our approach is prioritizing quality over quantity, need over want by empowering teachers with relevant skills, tools and pedagogical approaches that helps prepare learners for a productive today and future. We’ve covered 2 geopolitical zones and 4 states, reached 50+ schools, trained 250+ teachers. The overall impact is the continuous improvement in teaching and learning outcomes in Nigeria public schools. We believe that to fix learning outcomes goes to the heart of the quality of the teachers which is dependent on the kind of training the teachers get.
