GIZ Nigeria in Collaboration with the Central Bank of Nigeria introduces Electronic Learning for Financial Literacy Training

Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH held a two-day workshop in Abuja to promote access and give options to last-mile trainers and educators on financial literacy in Nigeria.

The workshop, done through the Pro-poor Growth and Promotion of Employment in Nigeria Programme- SEDIN, took place on November 18-19 at the Chelsea Hotel.

It was organised in collaboration with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).

The objective of the workshop was for GIZ, CBN and other implementing partners to agree on the requirements of an eLearning platform and also to chart a way forward for the takeoff of the project.

Twenty-eight participants, including experts, consultants and specialists in various modern-learning fields attended the workshop.

Among other things, participants identified various target groups, such as Adult Formal; Adult Emerging (Micro, Small & Medium Scale Enterprises and Farmers); Youth (Independent of School Enrolment); and Intermediaries (Financial Literacy trainers, Youth Corps Members).

These groups were identified based on their perceived motivation, interests, background, media usage, access to internet and IT literacy.

The workshop identified an open source software (Moodle) for the learning platform for scalability and sustainability. It also recommended the digitization of existing FL materials for instructional design.

The decisions at the workshop would set the stage for further discussions and actions soon.

Apart from the CBN and GIZ, other partners present at the workshop were representatives from the Federal Ministry of Youth and Sport Development; Security and Exchange Commission in Abuja; Nigerian Postal Service (NIPOST), National Insurance Commission (NAICOM).

Also, the Nigeria Stock Exchange (NSE); Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund (NSITF); National Pension Commission (PENCOM), National Insurance Commission (NAICOM), Lagos Business School, Mercy Corp; P3 Consulting; Off Look Foundation; HASAL Micro Finance Bank; HIMS Academy; Capstone; Enugu SME Center; and Fidelity Bank were represented.
