Olashore Marks Founders Day & Launches Specialist Teachers Training

As Olashore celebrates it's founders Day, it has also launched a specialist training program for the rapid development of teachers in Nigeria. This is In keeping in line with it's commitment to transform secondary school education in Nigeria.

The specialists Teacher Training Programme (TTP), which kicked off last Saturday in Iloko Ilesha is meant to infuse special teaching skills into teachers who are carefully selected across the country as well as teachers from partner schools . Olashore International plans  to run the programme termly in major locations in Nigeria (Lagos, Abuja, Port-Harcourt and Warri) including the host community of OIS, Iloko-Ijesa, where the pilot edition will be held

Among other objectives, the Olashore TTP programme aims to foster  a healthy and mutual relationship between Olashore and participating schools; provide an outlet for participating teachers to share personal teaching experiences and improve their skills; create a networking platform for teachers and as well serve as a meeting point for public and private school teachers

The OIS TTP is a social responsibility initiative geared at creating a forum where teachers in public and private schools can engage in cross fertilization of ideas on  self development and greater classroom effectiveness.

  The forum which is  facilitated by Bradford College trained Master teachers from Olashore International School, will allow discussion that focuses on  areas that range from providing resource materials, participant interaction, teaching methods  to strategies on  planning.

Olashore International School, in its quest at becoming the centre for teacher training in Nigeria, continues to redefine learning and teaching methods in schools. One way this is being achieved is the OIS Teacher Training Program.

The program is a 2-session training on improving the pedagogical skills of participants and reinforcing excellent teaching practices in the classrooms. Participants are drawn from partner primary schools and public primary schools in rural areas where opportunities for such training may be unreachable. Themes such as group work, modelling, and assessment for learning will form major milestones in the 6-terms long training.

The program is expected to  continue online with virtual interactions between facilitators and participants before the end of the 2016/17 academic session.

The Chairman, Board of Governors, Prince Bimbo Olashore, stated that "Olashore International School is a leading academic institution where leaders are made by providing our students with life skills, leadership training, arts, sports and global exposure while preserving our core Nigerian culture and societal values."

Since its inception 20 years ago, OIS has been redefining education through its comprehensive teaching and learning community approach, high quality instructors and keen emphasis on students’ leadership development. The school is particularly appealing to discerning Nigerians at home and abroad, as well as expatriates residing in Nigeria, who desire a school with a strong value system, demonstrable track record and a clear sense of purpose.
