Case Study: Nigerian Principals - Lagos Secondary Schools

In 2013 I undertook a substantial assignment in Lagos, Nigeria working as part of a World Bank funded project to develop secondary education in Lagos state, an area about the size of Greater London.

The project covers many aspects but the part I was involved with was to facilitate the development of coaching skills with a group of 25 lead coaches who will work with 160 school - based coaches who in turn will work directly with teachers to develop teaching strategies in the classroom built around a structured approach to good teaching.

This lead group will be responsible for steering the work in the field. My role was to help participants build and recognise new expertise as coaches and to help them aim to elicit evaluation of practice and ideas for change from their coachees as partners rather than using a telling approach which is the cultural norm in the country.
