The 10th edition of Total School Support Seminar and Exhibition was a remarkable event graced by Prof. Taiwo Osipitan (SAN), Ms. Pirjo Chowdhury (Finland Ambassador to Nigeria), Mrs. Ronke Soyombo (Director General Quality Assurance Lagos State Ministry Of Education) and more dignitaries including Educators, consultants, and producers/suppliers of educational materials from different parts of the world. There was an inherent need to bridge the gap between institutions and credible suppliers of education materials.
Over ten years, TOSSE has become a pilgrimage for the 21st-century educator. We have recorded attendance from 26 States in Nigeria and countries such as Finland, UK, Kenya, India, UAE, US, Poland, Cameroun, Togo, Uganda, Ghana and still counting. Our visitors were able to purchase valuable Educational materials and Educators were enriched with educative and informative trainings during the two days seminars from competent facilitators.
Within the space of ten years, TOSSE has tremendously transformed the Nigerian education landscape, taking the Education community on an explorative journey of knowledge acquisition, inculcating best practices in global education and impacting the lives of thousands of educators that have attended the event.
From inception, there is always something new to add substance to every edition of TOSSE. Part of our goals is to ensure that every TOSSE attendee (exhibitor or visitor) derived maximum value for their time in participating. TOSSE has become a pilgrimage for the 21st-century educator and it is our joy that many schools, careers, and organizations have been transformed through the impact of TOSSE.
As we draw attention to issues affecting trainers and trainees in the sector, we step out to provide solutions and position ourselves at the vanguard of change. This is why, at the 10th edition of TOSSE, we invited educationists and schools from Finland to discuss the success of Finland education system, alongside, a presentation from the Finland ambassador to Nigeria at the opening ceremony of TOSSE 2018. This marks a great milestone in transforming the Nigerian education sector.
Our focus for the 11th edition of TOSSE is to bring together Education professionals and companies providing solutions to challenges militating against positive development in the Education sector.
In order to properly capture the rapid growth in the Education Sector, our theme for this year is “The Future of Education in Africa.” We aim to focus on strategies, tools and personnel that can drive sustainable development in Africa. More importantly, our focus will be on how Educational institutions can support other sectors in terms of skillful manpower supply and human capital development across Africa.
We continuously seek ways to deliver value to all our exhibitors and visitors. TOSSE brings together over 6,000 key stakeholders in the Education community, as well as over 100 international and local organizations developing innovative products and services for the sector.
