Arto Tenhunen, chief executive officer of Soprano Group, a leading education company in Finland, says the future of education in Nigeria depends on the country’s ability to develop the sector to cater for the teeming needs of its citizens.

Speaking on Friday at the 11th Total School Support Seminar and Exhibition (TOSSE) education show in Lagos, Tenhunen, who led a Finnish delegation to the event, asked Nigeria to explore the use of technology.

He said Nigeria stands to gain a lot from the Finnish education system, “learning from the competence skills, lifelong learning, adapting skills needed for future work and increasing employability”.

Tenhunen also interacted with members of the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry, where he spoke about cyber security, the threat to citizens and what Finland is doing to combat cyber security as well as possibility for cooperation with Soprano.

“We are pioneering global online education with artificial intelligence in the learning environment. This is the biggest issue from us. What we are doing is to partner with educational institutions in Nigeria, universities and institutes to collaborate, find new possibilities together and bring effectiveness to the schooling system,” he said.

“We want to develop the education system to cater for the teeming needs of Nigeria. With a highly developed digital platform, Soprano delivers learning in more than 50 countries with over 1500 courses.

“Nigeria stands to gain a lot from the Finnish education system learning from the competence skills, lifelong learning, adapting skills needed for future work and increasing employability.

“The key to a sound education system begins with early childhood. Digital learning will drive faster learning process for Nigeria in rural areas with capacity to lift citizens out of poverty.”
