The Lagos to London novel has officially launched a global learning curriculum, in partnership with the British International School, Lagos.

The signing ceremony which was held on Monday the 25th of April 2022 has proven to be a turning point in the academia and literary field.

The curriculum which was designed around lessons shared in the Lagos to London novel seeks to empower learners with the mindset and skills essential for success as self-starting individuals with the capability to lead themselves, engage with others, and uses these as means to build their life.

This British International School, the first school to partner with the Lagos to London Team to pilot this global learning curriculum with its Personal, Health, Social, and Economic Education class will introduce the learners to diverse forms of learning designs including scenario-based learning, guided discussions, and experimental activities.

These active learning approaches will result in longer-term recall, synthesis, and problem-solving skills than learning by hearing, reading or watching. The curriculum adopts the learning-by-doing model instead of the learning-by-telling model and will run for a period of 6 weeks with the last week for a capstone project/ presentation.

The curriculum signing event was hosted with more than 60 students in attendance, the British International School Principal, Principal Kevin Donnelly, Ms. Jacinta Agim (Head of form 10) and 6 instructors.
