SAT & TOEFL Training for GISS Staff

Categories:Exams & Training

A team of officials from the leading SAT/TOEFL training outfit in the country, Management and Education Training (MET) Ltd, Lagos, were recently in Grundtvig International Secondary School Oba, Anambra State.

The visit was for a seven-day rigorous further training of our teachers in modern coaching techniques, exposing them to the best new methods of teaching and preparing students for the two international exams. The training has adequately equipped the teachers to prepare students for the SAT and TOEFL Exams.

These examinations open wider international university placement opportunities to students who, with the support of their parents, are desirous of studying abroad.
