SCHOOLS APPROVED TO BENEFIT FROM
SUBSTANTIAL SPONSORSHIP TO THE CONFERENCE

The UK-based major funder of the conference has approved 67% sponsorship for nominees of schools in low income regions. Schools in Nigeria are beneficiaries. This means that One Hundred Thousand Naira (N100, 000) has been underwritten by the major funder of the conference for each nominee of schools in Nigeria. Schools in Nigeria are therefore to pay only fifty thousand naira (N50, 000) for each of their school leaders participating in the conference. We recommend you include your Head of School, School Counsellor, School Secretary, PTA Secretary, School Accountant, and Subject Leaders among your nominees so they can collaborate on return from the Conference to put your institution on the path of exponential student population and financial growth as well as enviable student academic attainment. Feel free, however, to choose the number and individual members of your staff who are likely to serve the best interests of your school as you give them a unique leadership development opportunity with the aid of this sponsorship.

Send hard copies of your nominations and cheque to 4, Talabi Street, Off Adeniyi Jones Avenue (Vulcanizer Bus Stop), Ikeja, Lagos or register all your nominees online (at www.fasteducation.org.uk/school-conference/booking) latest Friday, November 10, 2017. Free cheque pick-up service is available if you call 08023249654 or 08183208253 . Nominees whose forms are received after that date will not benefit from the sponsorship and should therefore pay the standard charge. You will find bank account details under "Payment" if you scroll down.
