We are an international training institution established to provide professional courses for teachers in Nigeria. However, our utmost aim is to meet the developmental needs of the ever-evolving pool of teachers, school owners, parents, students and other professionals.

Our Professional Courses for Teachers in Nigeria
This programme is run by Greensprings Montessori Centre (GMC) Lagos established in 2016 for the award of International Montessori Diploma. The teachers training course is accredited by Montessori Accreditation Council for Teacher Education (MACTE) based in the USA, and it prepares adult learners in Nigeria for international Montessori education.
The Centre has produced many graduates since 2016. Adult learners can register for either Full time (8 months) or part-time (11 months) programme.
The Cambridge International Education (CIE) in Teaching and Learning is a program that’s certified by Cambridge and runs for 5 months. It is a teachers training course in Nigeria that can be taken by teachers in both private and public schools. The CIE certificate is issued at the end of the course.
Aside from the 5 months program, we also have various short professional courses for teachers in Nigeria. The short courses are designed to provide excellent training in key fundamental areas of effective teaching and learning.
This training course is specially designed for school leaders, including heads of schools, school owners, and management staff. The course can be completed within four to five months, and at the end, the Cambridge International (CIE) Certificate in Educational Leadership is award to participants.
At intervals, we hold educational workshops and seminars for teachers, school owners, and other educationists. We usually set themes for the programs, and they are facilitated by thought leaders in the Nigeria education sectors. Our seminars hold monthly or bimonthly on chosen Saturdays, and attendees normally receive a certificate of attendance.
Thinking School Nigeria (TSN) , an arm of Greensprings School, was established after the training of the Drive Team of Greensprings School by Thinking Matters. The training ended in April 2018, and since then, several training sessions on the three Thinking School pathways have been organized for teachers and support staff.
TSN is the first licensed school by Thinking Matters to train schools that wish to become Thinking Schools in Nigeria and Ghana. The pathways to becoming a Thinking school is a journey of 18 months and five sessions of eight days of on-site training.
To achieve its main goal of delivering quality education to students, a school needs well-trained and qualified teaching and non-teaching staff. So, aside from rendering professional courses for teachers in Nigeria, through our employee training and talent management service, we give assistant to schools managing their workforce.
Greensprings School, our mother school, has been operating for going to four decades. Thus, we are experienced in running a successful school. If you want to start your own school or want to upgrade service delivery in your school, we can help with our consulting and project management services.
Our areas of coverage include school start-up, marketing, writing of feasibility studies, modelling & supervision, etc.
