Emplace College was established in 2012 as a private secondary school. A number of bright, ambitious students have passed through our doors, leaving a bit of themselves behind when they head off to institutions of higher learning. We are proud of the institution they helped build with their brilliant academic performances in all external examinations both within and outside the country, and continue to sustain through their hard work and good testimonies of their moral standing wherever they are.
Emplace College combines the use of Nigerian and British syllabuses in our pedagogy
WHAT WE BELIEVE!
We are united in our belief that all students:
Have the power to learn
Are curious & creative
And that no two students have exactly the same skills or learning style.
This is why we create an individual learning plan for every child. Our plan will combine direct instruction, small-group work, and one-on-one tutoring in a way that works for each student.
Personal Tutoring/Mentoring System
As part of our commitment to individual attention, students in both the Junior and Senior Levels are allocated a Personal Tutor/Mentor who is responsible for his/her academic and pastoral well being.
Tutors are teachers who are assigned to see to the progress and welfare of the students in the class over which they have responsibility in co-operation with the Deputy Principal and the Principal.
The focus of the Personal Tutoring program varies depending upon whether students are in the Junior or the Senior Levels.Upon registration, students in the Junior School are each allocated to a Personal Tutor group comprised of approximately 8-12 students. Each Personal Tutor group meets once a week with their Personal Tutor for an hour session; during this session, students have an opportunity to liaise with their tutor regarding academic progress, mock exam results, and any pastoral issues that may arise for counseling.
In addition, a wide range of activities are undertaken during Personal Tutoring, including supervised study, career counseling, study skills workshops, writing workshops, exam writing technique, and JSSE and SSSE preparations.
Particular emphasis is placed on planning and preparing for terminal examinations with special focus on how students will graduate with high grades. Since the SS2 will have to sit for their mock examination, special emphasis is laid on early preparation. Although applying to university is the sole responsibility of parents, personal tutors will guide the students in their choices.
Teaching and Administrative Staff
We pride ourselves in the knowledge that schools are built on the foundation of qualified, dedicated, creative and passionate teachers who have caught the vision that education is a social service and that educators are called to serve. This is our driving force in Emplace College as we derive joy and fulfillment from our profession as teachers.
