A Non Governmental Organisation, Teach For Nigeria is set to recruit 400 fellows that will serve as basic school teachers in continuation of its efforts to provide solid foundation for Nigerian youths at the basic education level.
The teachers are to be deployed in understaffed schools mostly located in rural areas. According to the Chief Executive Officer, CEO of TFN, Mrs. Folawe Omikunle: “At Teach For Nigeria, we believe that there is no single solution to a problem as complex and systemic as educational inequity. Addressing it requires many solutions, from many directions. While we cannot single-handedly solve these problems, we believe that we can act as a catalyst to build a formidable network of determined leaders who understand the root causes of inequity and are committed to challenging it.
Application for prospective fellows commenced Monday 17 February 2020 through the application link: www.teachfornigeria.org/apply.
The Teach For Nigeria team will review the applications of prospective fellows and if successful, the candidates will be invited to write an online test and thereafter attend an assessment day in Lagos and Kaduna. If successful, an offer will be made to join the fellowship.
Earlier in the year, Teach For Nigeria formalized its partnership with the Lagos State Government, to place fellows in public primary schools across the state, allowing it to reach and positively impact more children.
