The statement said the Conference would be held alongside an Edutech exhibition for 21st -century technologies, and that, it would be climaxed with an Education Awards (Educom Awards).

The statement said as a continent, Africa had recorded the highest rates of educational exclusion in the world, adding that, the educational gap in Africa and the rest of the world was wide and needed to be narrowed.

It said the Group had for the past five years contributed to narrowing the gap in education through interventions such as annual teacher’s professional development event dubbed Global Super Teachers’ Conference.

Our vision is to equip educational Institutions and individuals with appropriate tools, skills, training, resources and advisory services, which will enable them to deliver their goals effectively and maximize their potential.
