In line with its commitment to Nigeria’s socio-economic development, Nigerian Breweries Felix Ohiwerei Education Trust Fund has fulfilled its promise, and sponsored five past winners of the Maltina Teacher of the Year Competition to Tampere, Finland, for capacity development training. The past winners include Olasunkanmi Opeifa, Olubunmi Anani, Abanika Taiye, Alaku Ayiwulu, and Adeola Adefemi.

The capacity development training, which was held between Monday, May 20, 2024, and Thursday, May 30, 2024, is part of the prize for the competition winners. The teachers were taken through different modules of practical-based teaching skills.

Speaking on the training, the Chairman, Nigerian Breweries Felix Ohiwerei Education Trust Fund, Mr. Hans Essaadi, explained that the training was organised to expose the teachers to modern teaching methods that are productive and positively impactful to the society at large. 

Essaadi stated that the programme is designed to upskill and maximise the capacity of the teachers to enable them to deliver effectively in a way that would impact and improve the performance of students.
