The Nigeria Learning Passport (NLP) has attracted 500,000 users as students and teachers expressed their satisfaction.

Celebrating the milestone on 2 September 2023 the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) in collaboration with the Federal Ministry of Education said the achievement is a testament to the government’s commitment to modernizing the educational landscape, thereby ensuring that every Nigerian child gets access to quality education to meet their various needs.

In her words, Cristian Munduate, the UNICEF Representative in Nigeria, said,

Reaching 500,000 users isn’t just a reflection of a successful platform but of the government’s visionary leadership and dedication to its citizens. As we set our sights on 1.5 million NLP users by 2024, the continued strategic guidance and involvement of FME will be invaluable

The advent of technology has paved the way for Digital learning for the future of education, hence by investing in the Nigeria Learning Passport, the country is set to thrive in its digital economy.

Meanwhile, a fourteen-year-old student at the Government Senior College Agege, Lagos Bolade Ayomide said.

I stay on top of my class work at home or school, and I like that they are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week on the NLP platform

I was impressed at the selection of courses available on the NLP platform– everything from biology to mathematics to entrepreneurial and secretarial studies

NLP was launched in March 2022 by FME and UNICEF, powered by Microsoft, as teachers and parents also shared their immense benefits from the platform, saying it has boosted interactive learning experiences to support their child’s learning trajectory, starting from an early age of playful learning courses.

NLP has over 15,000 curriculum-aligned resources available in English, Hausa, Igbo, and Yoruba, actively across 18 states allowing users to track their progress and achievements via the platform’s learning record.
