The print and electronic materials to be developed under the contract, would be used primarily in Nigeria and Sierra-Leone, and targets the non-formal sector.

This news was disclosed by the Secretary of ACSPN, Prof Nosa Owens-Ibie in a mail sent to members of the association.

Already, a Content Development Workshop has been held from June 14-16, 2019, featuring a team of professionals, academics, artists and related professionals, from across Nigeria, and a respected Sierra-Leonean, as participant.

The project is to be completed in six weeks, and expected to open up new options for the localisation and domestication of this global curriculum.

The workshop confirmed the prospects of the project, and was a further affirmation of the confidence of partners in the capacities of ACSPN.
