In its efforts to improve student’s performance and learning experience, the Centre for International Advanced and Professional Studies (CIAPS), Lagos, will hold a stakeholders’ meeting for parents, teachers, among others.
The Centre Director, CIAPS, Prof. Anthony Kila, in a statement made available to journalists, said that this edition of Brunch @ CIAPS, themed: “Getting the Best Out of Your School,” is targeted at parents and teachers, as well as help parents understand how schools can work better for them.
The programme, which will take place at CIAPS Hall – 5 Akinola Cole Crescent, Off Adeniyi Jones Avenue, Ikeja, Lagos, on Sunday, October 16, 2022, from 12:30 pm, will attract a fee of N15,000 per parent or guardian while couples will pay N25,000.
Kila said that the programme is an initiative of CIAPS, with input from ECAPS, Cambridge, The Association of Head Teachers UK and PTA UK.
“It is aimed at parents, guardians, teachers and school heads interested in improving student performance, learning experience and relationships between school and homes,” Prof Kila said, adding that the “Programme has been designed with a lot of input from parents, teachers, school administrators, top education consultants and children.
“It will be an opportunity to share direct and inside tips about our ever-moving sector and develop means of giving our children the best. Schools will get the chance to emphasise the role and responsibilities of parents. For parents, it will be a chance to express themselves and learn how to best communicate and engage with schools.”
