In Africa, education is still a routine whereby students cram/ memorizes tutors’ notes and reproduce them onto foolscaps during examinations. At the end, we produce individuals with certificates, but which have no correlation with expectations of work organizations.

Many people still merely associate talent with performance in education (or sports or music, etc ) , while excluding innate aspects of a person that may not really connect with education BUT have the power to wow and wake up the inner whole.

In developed countries such as USA, UK, Canada and etc, Gift and Talent Testing is conducted on individuals in order to determine their experiential knowledge before admission in order to enable them know their real careers many years in advance. Such can be seen in sports men and women who spend 2 hours in class but 6 or more hours on a tennis court, for example, where their talents lie.

For learning and general education, professional identification/ screening for natural Gifts or Talents is essential in determination of the true career dimensions; otherwise we will continue pushing the learners through a single pipe and expect them to be different in the end.


  • If a Gift or Talent is identified in a child/ student at an early age, parents will be able to identify possible career paths hence will be able to know the right time, money and effort required to make him/her successful. This is very important for children at Reception Years i.e. those in Early Childhood Education. This vulnerable group must be assessed and their abilities known beforehand so that they are not forced into what they would naturally never learn. It is important, further, to note that such children may have a learning defect which may only be discovered too late into learning when no real remedy can take place!
  • Gifted and Talented children/ students will get sponsorship by international bodies for further and relevant education since it is known that they possess unique abilities that would shape the societal, political and economic destiny of nations.Without a professional and scientific assessment and final reports and prescriptions, your child will remain locked out of international support as their details will not be at the International Database.
  • Parents would essentially know the right education or talent support for his/her child hence decide effectively where it can be achieved.
  • In other words, through Gift and Talent Testing, you can forecast your child’s career 10 -20 years early, hence plan productively.
  • For adults, you will be able to review and enrich your career by knowing “what else you are good in”, away from current employment, qualifications or business.
