Educationist Urges Govt. to Partner With Private Sector

The Director of JSAY Pre-varsity, Mrs Olajumoke Akere has called on the government at all levels to increase its partnership with the private sector in Nigeria, stressing that private institutions have been a major pillar in upholding high standard of education in the country.

Akere, who stated this in Ibadan to the News Agency of Nigeria at an event to mark the 12th anniversary of JSAY, noted that to achieve transformation, which comes through education, government needed to partner with the private sector.

According to her, “Education is the bedrock of development and it is important for government to invest in education through increased budgetary allocation. Government needs to take a look at the core area of development, which is education”.

Pointing out that young people needed to be groomed for success through the provision of complete education, Akere identified inadequate funding as a major challenge in the education sector, urging all stakeholders, particularly government and parents, to intervene.

Mrs Akere, while attesting that JSAY Pre-varsity is committed to a culture of excellence, disclosed that over 5,000 Nigerian children had passed through the institution.

WHY DID THE SCHOOL OPT FOR THE CAMBRIDGE EXAM?

JSAY undertook the daunting task of preparing students for the Cambridge Curriculum in recognition of the fact that a Cambridge education prepares students for life, helping them develop an informed curiosity and a lasting passion for learning. At JSAY, we shape the Cambridge curriculum around how we want our students to learn, helping them discover new abilities and a wider world. With the Cambridge curriculum, we are confident that our students are developing the skills they need to achieve at school, university and work.

Our choice for Cambridge exam is borne out of our passion to see young people be the very best they can be. It aligns with our vision of grooming young people to succeed and to have global relevance.

HOW IS THE SCHOOL BEST POSITIONED TO SUPPORT THEIR STUDENTS TO ACHIEVE MORE USING THE CAMBRIDGE EDUCATION?

JSAY PREVARSITY offers maximum supports to her students. This is seen in our crop of highly skilled and qualified teachers who are abreast with best practices in delivering the Cambridge curriculum. We offer support to our students in and out of class so as to effectively care for all that affect their well-being. Our team of staff, state of the art facilities all function to give our students the advantage they need for outstanding achievement.

HOW DOES CAMBRIDGE CURRICULUM DIFFER FROM THE NIGERIAN EDUCATION AND HOW DOES IT POSITION THE STUDENTS TO ACHIEVE MORE IN THE FUTURE?

First, Cambridge curriculum is one that sets a global standard for education, with programmes that stretch, challenge and inspire our students. The curriculum is flexible, challenging and inspiring, culturally sensitive yet international in approach. The curriculum equips students with the essential skills they need for success at university (within and outside the country) and in their future careers.

The curriculum also features innovative approaches to teaching and learning as well as assessments that are fair, valid, reliable and practicable. These assessments have real, lasting value and can be a lifelong passport to further study or employment.

Cambridge curriculum assesses what is of greatest value to our students – deep subject knowledge, conceptual understanding and higher order thinking skills. The resulting qualifications from Cambridge curriculum are globally recognized, accepted by universities and employers at home and around the world. A Cambridge qualification comes with an impressive reputation, and will retain its value for a lifetime of education and employment.

With these and many more, the curriculum positions students to achieve more in the future

Teachers Change Lives

It is not an exaggeration to say that a great teacher can change a student’s life. There are an endless amount of great teacher stories that attest to the benefits of a strong relationship between an educator and pupil.

As some of the most influential role models for developing students, teachers are responsible for more than just academic enrichment. If you want to be a great educator, you must connect with your pupils and reach them on multiple levels, because the best teachers are committed to their students’ well-being both inside and outside the classroom. By forging strong relationships, educators are able to affect virtually every aspect of their students’ lives, teaching them the important life lessons that will help them succeed beyond term papers and standardized tests. 

It is not always easy to change a student’s life, which is why it takes a great teacher to do so. Some just need an extra push like the student whose math grade is just a few points shy from the A that will give them a 4.0 GPA; others may be going through something troubling in their personal lives and need someone to talk to. Whatever the student needs to help them excel, a life-changing teacher will be there for them.

While you will spend your entire career learning the different ways you can change your students’ lives, here are three aspects that are directly affected by great teachers:

1. Education

A great teacher makes learning fun, as stimulating, engaging lessons are pivotal to a student’s academic success. Some students who are more prone to misbehavior, truancy or disengagement are more dependent on an engaging teacher. Making your classroom an exciting environment for learning will hold the students’ fascination, and students learn best when they are both challenged and interested. It’s part of motivating students, which may not be easy, but which will benefit students immeasurably in the long run.

2. Inspiration

Have you ever had a teacher who inspired you to work harder or pursue a particular goal? Were you inspired to become an educator by one of your own great teachers?

Inspiring students is integral to ensuring their success and encouraging them to fulfill their potential. Students who are inspired by their teachers can accomplish amazing things, and that motivation almost always stays with them. Inspiration can also take many forms, from helping a pupil through the academic year and their short-term goals, to guiding them towards their future career. Years after graduation, many working professionals will still cite a particular teacher as the one who fostered their love of what they currently do and attribute their accomplishments to that educator.

3. Guidance

Teachers can also be a trusted source of advice for students weighing important life decisions. Educators can help their pupils pursue higher education, explore career opportunities and compete in events they might otherwise have not thought themselves able to. Students often look to their teachers as mentors with experience and knowledge, and, as an educator, you will almost definitely be asked for advice at some point during your career.

Did you know that one in four students drops out of school or that every nine seconds, another student drops out? Dropping out is a decision that students won’t likely come to you about, but an adept teacher can notice the indications that a student is struggling and intervene before it’s too late. Aside from educating them on the hard facts about dropping out, teachers can also help assess the problem and figure out an alternative. In such situations, teachers undoubtedly have the ability to change the lives of students.
