Sequel to her request to the Secondary Education Management Board (Imo State) for approval to establish Farreach Club in Secondary Schools in Imo State, Farreach International gets support from the Secondary Education Management Board (Imo State) to establish Farreach Club in secondary schools in Imo State for the purpose of implementing her programme that is tagged “Farreach Soft Skills Expo” in Imo State.
“Farreach Soft Skills Exposition for Students (aka Farreach Soft Skills Expo)” is an innovative inclusive solution that adopts the Farreach Perspective of using participatory communication for effective stakeholder engagement to improve the knowledge, understanding, and application of soft skills for students. “Farreach Soft Skills Expo” is a programme initiated by Farreach International for students in secondary education and undergraduate students in higher institutions in Nigeria. Its major objective is to expose the fundamentals of soft skills to students in order to improve the knowledge, understanding, and application of soft skills for students, and thereby equip them to navigate the challenges of life both in their academic lives in the school and their career lives after school, and become better future leaders. The transformation of our culture from an Industrial Age of the 19th and 20th centuries to an Information Age of the 21st century is why a new kind of literacy, coupled with a new way of learning, is critical in the 21st century. According to Alvin Toffler, “The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.”
For over four years now, Farreach International has been working rigorously to develop a conceptual framework that will drive the teaching and learning of comprehensive soft skills set in our secondary education sector in order to improve the quality of our secondary education and graduates to thrive better in the 21st-century economy and society. We are ready to move into the field for the effective and impactful implementation of this programme.
Thus, the “Farreach Soft Skills Expo” creates opportunities for stakeholders in the public, private and development sectors to collaborate in shaping the mindset and behaviour of future leaders that will play critical roles in advancing human society. It is a strategic communication intervention programme that adopts a partnership strategy to improve social change in Nigeria. Farreach International considers the students as strategic stakeholders in shaping the future of Nigeria and thereby creates opportunities through the “Farreach Soft Skills Expo” to expose them to the fundamentals of soft skills. To achieve this objective, Farreach International is seeking the collaboration of public, private, and development organisations.
