Applications are invited for the Teach For Nigeria Fellowship Program 2020. The Teach For Nigeria Fellowship program is a 2 year full-time paid commitment that is designed to build a movement of leaders who will work towards eliminating educational inequity in Nigeria.

As a Fellow, you will set targets and work towards ambitious goals that will put your students on a different life path.

It will help you develop an awareness of the wider issues relating to educational inequity – and deepen your understanding of their potential solutions.

Program Details

Teach for Nigeria believes every child has the right to develop the academic excellence, and mind-sets to thrive in the classroom while gaining access to opportunity to determine their own pathways and meaningfully engage with their communities. Therefore, they ground their teacher and leadership development training on outcomes and strategies that will transform the educational trajectory of the students they serve through a rigorous and extensive training program which begins with a six weeks Training Institute.

Through the two years Fellows receive ongoing support through a combination of in-person training sessions, leadership forums, as well as online training courses and resources. Additionally, they will build partnerships with key public and private sector entities in order to develop pathways to accelerate alumni leadership in critical areas.
