Lagos to London, an Educational Company based in Lagos recently launched a highly anticipated Facilitators Training on the Lagos to London (L2L) Global Learning Curriculum: Personal and Life Skills Development as well as trained some teachers from the Comprehensive Schools in Lagos State at the Multilingual Hall in Maryland, Lagos, Lagos State.
Speaking at the launch, the Provider of the L2L Global Learning Curriculum, Mrs. Lola Aworanti-Ekugo, who is also the Author of the novel, “Lagos To London” disclosed that the curriculum is based on lessons from the novel and focuses on Personal Life Skills and Development which aims at empowering learners with the mindset and skills necessary to achieve success as self-starters, capable of leading themselves and engaging with others as well as using the skills as a tool for building a successful life and becoming important members of the community. She noted that this aspect of education is considered an essential component of the 21st-century.
Lola Aworanti-Ekugo narrated how, while growing up, she found it difficult to find her unique path and pursue her life’s mission. As a result of this, she was driven to write the Lagos to London novel and design the curriculum around the lessons in the novel in collaboration with Learnible, a global learning and education innovation agency founded by Mr. Demilade Oluwasina which aims to empower students with personal life skills required for success.
Mrs. Folasade Adefisayo, Lagos State Commissioner of Education, who was represented by Mrs. Lucy Emike Omoaka, the Director of Comprehensive Schools, lauded the initiative and its expected impact on positively changing the life of students. She further disclosed that Lagos State will ensure that schools in the State would be made to focus on implementing the L2L Global Learning Programme, noting that she will visit all schools to ensure its effective delivery.
Also, Mrs. Omoaka expressed gratitude to the Lagos to London team for developing a comprehensive and insightful curriculum, and for giving the Lagos State Ministry of education the chance to incorporate the programme in schools. She thanked them for training teachers on how to effectively teach the curriculum in comprehensive schools across Lagos.
The Lagos to London team trained the teachers on all 11 modules of the curriculum, which include: Self Discovery and Personal Mission Statement; Developing Resilience and Overcoming Setbacks; Building Impactful Relationships and Community Life; Dealing with Peer Pressure and Navigation Career Choices among others.
The event came to close with a Book Signing Section of the novel, Lagos to London by the Author.
