7 Practical Skills Your Child Needs to Prepare for the World!

There is no doubt that there are thousands upon thousands of both primary and secondary schools in Nigeria in particular; and the world in general. They are scattered in all nooks and crannies of every city, town and village. All ‘fishing’ in the same market. All the schools also make similar offers to the general public: Pre-nursery, nursery, primary and secondary educational services. Without more.

But education is evolving. It is no longer all about academics and scholarship but also about equipping your kids of today with 21st century skills. By so doing, you are getting them ready for the world.

Jofegan International school has taken the lead in impacting 7 practical skills in your children in order to preparing them for the future world they will lead. The skills are in:

  • Robotics
  • ICT
  • Music and Performance
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Cambridge School (British Curriculum – IGSCE)
  •  International Baccalaureate (IB)
  • Immersion Program that sends students on educational visit to build global skills

Let us take a look at each of the above in details.

Students in a Science Practical Class


If your children must develop global skills and compete with their peers globally, then the education they receive must go beyond having high grades in academics to including developing technology-oriented children with hands-on experience in modern day technology.

 Giving them learning concepts in Robotics, Drone Technology, Digital Electronics, power generation through hydro power, wind power, solar systems and so on. This is the revolutionary way of impacting practical skills in your students of today in order to prepare them for the future world they will lead.

Information and Communications Technology (ICT)

Developing the skills of your children in ICT and related fields cannot be taken for granted. This includes in the areas of Coding, Programming and Computer Graphics.

It is understood that jobs in the ICT and other Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) fields are the fastest growing careers in the world.

As a matter of fact, they are projected to grow more in the near future. The duty of Jofegan International School is to prepare your children for this workforce change.

Music and Performance

At Jofegan International schools, Music is considered as a pivotal part of a child’s educational process. It is used to stimulate the brain of your children and get them excited for learning.

Music has an extraordinary impact on students learning. It is a vehicle for an excellent memory skill. Can you guess why rhymes are used often in Nursery and Junior primary classes?

In addition to other numerous benefits, Music Education also requires team work and collaboration. While playing instruments together, students develop listening skills.

They must listen to others to better gage volume levels, the implementation of dynamics and lots more. Team work is also required when completing simple musical tasks such as rhythmic and melodic notation.

 Students quickly learn to value the opinions and ideas of others and how to efficiently combine those thoughts to complete the task at hann.

There is so much unemployment in all over the world today that it takes many years to get white collar jobs especially for those not connected. To solve this problem of unemployment, students of today must be self-empowered.

Thus, Entrepreneurship education helps to prepare students for the future. It helps students to become creative and innovative and ultimately job creators or employers of labour by being self-employed rather than totally dependent on government job.

That is, for those that have the passion. But our duty at Jofegan International Schools is to get our students well equipped for the future challenges of the labour market.

Cambridge School (British Curriculum – IGSCE)

International General School Certificate Examination (IGSCE), as the name implies is an international certification. Introducing the British Curriculum to our students enables them to have certifications that are internationally recognised.

International Baccalaureate (IB)

International Baccalaureate (IB) is a worldwide, non-profit education founded to give all students the opportunity to receive an education fit for a globalising world. It places more emphasis on writing and developing critical thinking skills. Enrolling our students in IB Programmes to enhance the critical thinking skills is in line with our aspirations.

Immersion Program

We are introducing French Immersion programme to our students. The programme involves sending French students to France or any other French speaking country for an academic session. The programme allows the students to grasp and improve their practical French Language. It will ultimately help build global skills in our students.

Through the above programmes and activities, your children are impacted with the innovative skills of collaboration, communication, creativity and critical thinking. These are the 21st century skills required to prepare the leaders of tomorrow for this ever-evolving world.
