The FundaWazi Foundation, a non-governmental organisation spearheading the welfare of children, will on March 10 host the maiden edition of the Teachers Exploring through Mentorship (TEM).
The mentoring programme, aimed at supporting and guiding teachers, school owners and care givers in their career; enhancing teaching practice and student learning; finance and other professional goals, as well as creating a plan towards achieving them, will hold at the Multipurpose Hall, The Fountain of Life Church, Ilupeju Lagos. Time is 10am.
According to the Co-coordinator, Mrs. Abisola Soneye, the programme is borne out of the passion to restore mentorship, which is a missing puzzle in the teaching profession in Nigerian schools. She noted that the programme will be an important mechanism for teachers to build a high-performing and competent career which will guarantee the longevity of schools.
She said the event will also provide career development opportunities as well as capacity building and the ability to further duplicate the mentorship attitude in their profession and way of life generally.
According to her, professionals from leading sectors and educational institutions will be handling the programme. They include the founder of the foundation, Mrs. Nomthi Odukoya, who is an educationist, life coach and writer; the Executive Director Greensprings School Lagos, Mrs. Lai Koiki; the Chief Executive Officer, Corona Schools Trust Council, Mrs. Olufunto Igun.
Others are the Principal Transformation Strategist, Kunle Soriyan and Co, Mr. Olakunle Soriyan; a financial analyst/stock broker, Mr. Muktar Mohammed; and the Principal, Taiwo Akinlanmi Academy, Taiwo Akinlanmi.
