It goes without saying that this is an unusual and unsettling time around the world. As the COVID-19 pandemic forces countries into lockdown and traditional workspaces are disrupted, we would like to assure you of our commitment to you and the work that you do to provide children with access to quality education.
Children the world over have been mandated to stay at home. At TEP Centre, work must, however, go on as we contribute our quota towards preventing a learning slide. One way in which we are supporting ongoing efforts of governments and the non-state sector is by advising on the design and implementation of virtual teaching and learning approaches. If you are interested in guidance for supporting children to learn remotely through low tech platforms such as interactive radio instruction (IRI) or through data-driven approaches including gamified learning, please do reach out to us.
How are we working during this challenging season?
- Support: Our team will be working remotely. We encourage you to reach out to us either via email or phone or on our social media platforms
- Meetings: To protect our team and yours, we do not encourage physical meetings during this period. We will be happy to schedule a virtual meeting via the various video conferencing platforms such as Zoom and Skype.
- Communication: We will continue to update you on developments with respect to our work as this pandemic unfolds, and our communication lines will remain open.
We are confident in the resilience of the human spirit and we know we can combat this pandemic. We can, we must and we will, both for our sake and that of our children.
Please continue to follow all safety guidelines outlined by reputable health organizations such as the World Health Organisation. If you notice symptoms of COVID-19 – fever, cough and difficulty breathing – please call the hotlines provided by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).
