November saw the arrival of a group of Nigerian academics from the Federal College of Education, Kontagora to CPD Education. After an intensive week of master classes Muhammad Shaaaba, Director of the college had these comments to make about their visit:
'York St John is a lovely University with great history, inspiring leaders and dedicated staff, whose sense of commitment and friendliness to visitors can best be described as exemplary. York St John University can simply be described as a working academic system with great history of evolutionary success and bright hope for the future.'
The group also attended the Vice Chancellor’s Inauguration, visited York Minster and spent time at Askham Bryan College. It is hoped that the visit will lead to agreements being signed and might pave the way towards academic visits in both directions and lead to more staff development both in York and in Nigeria.
