The Corona College of Education has said global education will make teachers globally employable.
Speaking at the 5th convocation of the institution, guest lecturer, Prof. Charles Ogbulogo of Covenant University, in his lecture titled, ‘Education and globalisation: A Nigerian perspective’, said people would become useful anywhere in the world if their grades were transferrable.
“In a country that is called destitute, you can see there is a high disconnect between their institutions and their industrial sector.
“The only reason people can migrate and become useful elsewhere is that their grades are transferable. Global education makes your grades transferable.”
Ogbulogo added that due to transferable skills, teachers and students would have the opportunity to do things anywhere in the world, thereby creating employment.
The Provost, Dr Olajumoke Mekiliuwa, told the graduands to be good ambassadors of the Corona Schools Trust Council.
She added that the college would continue to add value using a technology-driven education system to enhance the development of the education sector, saying CCED was collaborating with local and international organisations/institutions such as EDVES, to offer digital education to global learners on its personalised learning platform.
