I am Toyin Sam-Emehelu, Chief Executive Officer at Coreskills Developmental Services.
My company’s journey to date reflects my passion for educational excellence and capacity development for women and children. We offer training, consulting, mentoring, and events &facilitation services to schools, educational institutions, and corporations in a wide range of education topics including: a healthy school culture, education management and education leadership transformation.
My areas of expertise include education leadership development, teaching, administration, communication and mentoring educators. I have worked with more than seventy school leaders and individuals in the areas of personal and professional development including educational stakeholders, teachers, school leaders, school owners, association leaders, and government.
I have organized over fifty in-house training sessions. I have also been invited to speak and train in multiple seminars and conferences within and outside Nigeria. I have been a speaker at multiple parenting forums, on parenting in the 21st century, and strategies and techniques for parents to equip their children for the future.
I have also partnered with various international organizations; Sustainable Education and Enterprise Development and Non-Governmental Organizations like Dolly Children Foundation and Bunmi Adedayo Foundation, as well as Lagos state public primary schools in training, facilitation, monitoring and evaluation of teachers. The goal is to improve the quality of teaching and the learning experience for children in public and private primary schools in Lagos state and Nigeria overall.
I have authored three books, Personal Leadership for Educators, Coreskills in Primary Education, and The School Leader’s Toolkit.
I am very concerned about the state of primary and secondary education in my country Nigeria. Nigeria currently has the highest number of children out of school in the world. Poor teacher and school leader quality is another problem needing improvement. The lack of good leadership in public and private schools in Nigeria is also a major source of concern. I believe the more I am able to learn and collaborate with supportive partners around the world, the faster my company will be able to scale and provide solutions to these and many other problems impeding Nigeria’s educational excellence.
