LEAP Africa, in collaboration with Junior Achievement Nigeria (JAN), has successfully trained 100 teachers from 10 government secondary schools in Sokoto State. The week-long program, aimed at fortifying educators’ capabilities, is a significant stride towards implementing the innovative iLEAD curriculum.

The iLEAD curriculum is strategically designed to empower students in underserved communities, facilitating seamless transitions to post-secondary education. Simultaneously, it equips teachers to serve as exemplary mentors. This transformative program is poised to revolutionize Sokoto State’s educational landscape, fostering a conducive learning environment and contributing to overall advancements in educational outcomes.

To ensure the program’s success, a comprehensive training-of-trainers was organized, targeting educators in underserved public schools in Sokoto. Participants expressed gratitude for the initiative’s uniqueness and relevance in the region, with Rufai Mustapha, one of the teachers, stating, “This is the first of its kind for most of us; we are excited to learn and, in turn, impact students in our different schools.”

The training covered various essential topics, including psychosocial support for teenagers, effective communication, introduction to entrepreneurship, values, creative teaching methods, morals and ethics, and “What’s my Advantage,” among others. Renowned facilitators such as Joy Amanabo, Simisoluwa Abraham, and representatives from Digital N Research Limited and JAN led the sessions.

The collaboration between LEAP Africa and JAN underscores a shared commitment to advancing education and empowering teachers.

Olaolu Akogun, the acting Executive Director of JAN, expressed enthusiasm, stating, “As an organization dedicated to equipping young people with skills necessary for their success, we are excited to partner with LEAP Africa on this initiative.”

The initiative signifies LEAP Africa’s dedication to creating a brighter future for the students and communities they serve. The impact of this training is anticipated not only in the participating schools but also in the broader educational ecosystem of Sokoto State.
