We have made great progress, but there is more to be done
Dr Elizabeth Achinewhu-Nworgu is the CEO and founder of Focus Learning Support.
Her success in bringing in consultancies for different educational and training organisations, as well as NGOs, in the UK motivated her to set up FLS in 2003, with the primary aims of Making Education Count for young people, promoting student retention, achievement and widening participation. Dr Achinewhu-Nworgu writes:
“The principles and standards of Focus Learning Support revolve around the advancement of community cohesion and integration via education and training and professional development activities.
We recognise that collaboration is important in bringing about positive changes for all in the community and therefore value our partnerships, our members, various organisations, local councils and education institutions.
Since 2003, Focus Learning Support has made great progress in spite of the many challenges that come with this kind of work and the capital-intensive nature of it.
FLS is extremely grateful to all the UK universities and colleges we work with for their support, the Rivers State Government in Nigeria and parents, EVO Dioceses, Bulgarian Comparative Education and to all those who contribute in any way in helping our recruited students to achieve their career aspirations and to the entire FLS team for their devoted work to ‘make education count’ for all.
However, our work so far has barely scratched the surface of what is needed to assist overseas students to grow and develop and to have academic success. We are therefore committed to continuing the work that we have started and to supporting even more students to succeed in their academic endeavours.”
