The “Think big for your kids” programme is an initiative of Prepclass NG, an education technology company in Nigeria that focuses on aggregating professional tutors and connecting them with learners that need academic support or bespoke learning programs that are specifically crafted to help the learners achieve their goals.
The TBYK programme is targeted at educating today’s Nigerian parents on the socio-economical changes and opportunities that technology is helping to unleash in the Nigerian and global markets. The ultimate goal is for parents to gain the awareness they need to help their kids prepare and set themselves up for success in a world where digital innovation, the Internet and technology pervade and are prevalent in every aspect of our lives.
Every week, Prepclass facilitators go on radio, IG live, youtube and Facebook to interact with parents and to deliver the TBYK programme, to help parents and guardians understand the impact technology has had on the way they live and think, the impact it is having in the society and the way it is going to impact our future. We answer questions and guide parents on how they can help their kids unlock their potential and harness the power of technology.
