The fellowship is an opportunity for Nigeria’s most outstanding university graduates, young professionals and entrepreneurs from diverse academic backgrounds to serve as full-time teachers (Fellows) in under-resourced schools in low-income communities.





Through the six weeks of rigorous and extensive leadership development training, our fellows are well equipped with outcomes and strategies that will transform the educational trajectory of the students we serve.

As a Fellow, you will set targets and work towards ambitious goals that will put your students on a different life path. The experience will not only develop your leadership skills but also give you first-hand exposure to the educational crisis in our country. It will help you develop an awareness of the wider issues relating to educational inequity – and deepen your understanding of their potential solutions.

Throughout the two years, Fellows receive ongoing support through a combination of in-person and online training sessions as they strive to improve academic achievement, attitudes and aspirations that unlock opportunities in the life of that one child, their careers and personal lives. By this experience, Fellows develop a good appreciation of challenges underserved students face through first-hand experiences in the classrooms and communities and begin to identify their role in building a wider movement for educational equity.

The aim is to develop a long-term systemic solution by producing an Alumni of experienced, successful leaders who go on (after the two years) to champion the cause in their respective fields, ensuring that one day, all children in Nigeria will have the opportunity to attain an excellent education.

COVID-19 Update

Teach for Nigeria (TFN) is committed to ending educational inequity in Nigeria. In the midst of the pandemic, we are committed to continuing to enroll leaders who will drive the movement towards educational equity and excellence in Nigeria. To learn more about how you can be part of this movement, continue to read below.

How are we responding to COVID-19?

The COVID-19 pandemic has unfortunately caused widespread disruption and uncertainty not only in Nigeria but around the world. The safety of our community remains our highest priority and as such, we are prioritising the following:
1. Protecting students and ensuring their continuity of learning
2. Safety of fellows, staff, and applicants

Now more than ever, we are concerned about the students who attend our public schools. Their communities are facing additional and increasing disadvantages that will prevent them from accessing quality education, thereby widening the existing educational gap between children from the lowest and highest socioeconomic households. This is especially because school can often be a place not just for learning but an engine for social mobility and a safe place from home, with access to food and water. As a result, many students who are out of school are at risk of health and nutritional challenges as well as compromised wellbeing in these times of isolation.

This is why Teach For Nigeria is committed to continuing its work and continues to need not only the next generation of inspiring leaders but existing teachers with exemplary leadership qualities within communities, to help us accelerate positive impact in education and stability for the communities and students we serve.

The Recruitment, Selection, and Matriculation unit would be hosting information sessions designed to provide more information about the application process and the Fellowship program. Please follow our social media pages for more information.
