Among the series of activities lined up to engage these schools during the 6 weeks period is the Training of Trainers (ToT). The ToT was an intensive residential training (ToT) of 54 Teachers. The training exposed the teachers to FAME’s Leadership and life-skills curriculum.

The ToT is aimed at developing the capacity of the teachers who will be mentoring students in the aforementioned schools and also to widen the participant’s awareness of self-leadership and empathy, and how this translates to leading others.

The sessions were facilitated by FAME Staff. The training left the participants feeling very inspired and confident in taking up their new roles and responsibilities. It challenged the new FGLP teachers to always find the most innovative ways of consciously infusing the learnings from the ToT into their regular teaching engagements. They attested to the fact that the curriculum will give the students a complete experience outside of the FGLP curriculum.

Some of the participants shared their experiences here.

FAME will provide 54 teachers and 1,620 students in 27 Government Secondary Schools in the Oyo West and Oyo East LGA with leadership and life skills learnings through the FGLP Programme.
