January 30, 2013 - The Honourable Ed Fast, Minister of International Trade and Minister for the Asia Pacific Gateway, visits the International Learning Network (ILN), an educational management organization in Lagos that offers a Canadian curriculum to Nigerian students through an integrated virtual and physical classroom experience.
In partnership with Alberta’s Golden Hills School Division No. 75 and Ontario’s Virtual High School, ILN offers Nigerian students credits toward an Ontario or Alberta high school diploma, as well as a pathway to university acceptance. The Canadian partners provide the curriculum, instruction and ongoing assessment, while local learning coaches provide tutoring, technical support and supervision.
