Teach for Change Nigeria (TFCN) is an educational initiative borne out of the need to address the problems of teaching Literature in Nigerian secondary schools, and the lack of relevant instructional materials for teaching. Profiled by the Bristish Council ELTons Awards as one of the world best innovations in the teaching of English Language, our goal is to digitize learning and to inspire a rise of innovative teachers who will spark up change in the hearts of students through reading and other literary activities.

TFCN Teacher Prize for Literature, in its second year and sponsored by iSERVE 2050, is an award given to an outstanding Nigerian secondary teacher of Literature in Nigeria. The 100,000 naira cash prize award is aimed at supporting and promoting the learning of Literature in Nigerian classrooms as a tool for change and student empowerment.

Zainab Abdulrasheed Atobatele, the inaugural winner of the prize has this to say:

The TFCN Prize for Literature has been an eye opening one. It exposed me to having a deep reflection on the essence of Literature in English as a subject and ways it can be taught effectively.’

    • It would have been nice to have English teachers enter, but the questions require that you are currently teaching novels, etc. So if you are doing that as a language teacher, yes. But if not, that will be tricky.

  1. Hello. I’m finding it hard to sign up. I don’t know what I may be doing wrong. It doesn’t just go through. I click and click and click on the green sign up icon, but it doesn’t respond.

    I’ll need a reply soon, please.

    Best regards!
