Nigerian Alumni Chapter give career talk at the Federal Government Academy
On 22 October 2016, the University of Portsmouth Nigerian Alumni Chapter visited the Federal Government Academy, Suleja, Nigeria, to give a career talk to approximately 150 students which covered educating, supporting and advising them on their career.
A national centre for nurturing gifted and talented children, the Academy was founded in 1986 and delivers a Gifted Education programme that allows students with outstanding intelligence, and who are capable of high academic performance, to fast track their secondary education curriculum.
The hand-selected students attended the talk alongside Dr David Ndzi from the University of Portsmouth’s Faculty of Technology and members of the Nigerian Alumni Chapter. Dr Ndzi also presented to the students highlighting some of the University’s achievements in areas of academic performance, research and development.
The Chapter reported that most of the students began the talk with the intention of being a medical doctor or engineer in the future but came out understanding there are other ways to be successful in life.
