A non-governmental organisation, People First Initiative (PFI), has said all is set for its two weeks of free training on Essay Writing and Communication Skills for secondary school students.
The training which will be held online is for SS 1 and 2 students, it starts tomorrow, Saturday 8 August and ends on Sunday, 16 August 2020.
According to the Founder of the NGO, Mr Adeniyi Arije, the two weeks extensive training on communication and writing skills is focused on building students writing culture and providing easy ways for them to learn how to write well.
Stating further, Mr Arije said it will also avail the students the opportunity of learning the best ways to communicate within themselves and the society at large.
He said at the end of the training an essay writing competition will be organised for participants to test their understanding of the training while saying 1st – 3rd best entries for the competition will be awarded with different prizes.
Given the reason for the training, he said the NGO is touched by the negative effect the continued closure of schools has on the students.
He said: “As part of our effort to making the students have something doing during this lockdown, we decided to come to Mup with this online training as a way of contributing to educational growth and societal development.
We found out that many of these students lack adequate writing skills and have no proper training on communication skills, which is a vital tool in every aspect of life, this gaps, we have set out to fill in this training we are organising. We will also organise writing competition for them at the end of the training and best 3 entries will be rewarded with different prizes.”
