Lagos Trains 5,000 Students For Job

About 5,000 students are undergoing a 13-week intensive training under the Ready- Set-Work programme organised by the Lagos State Government to prepare students for work.

Participants were drawn from institutions within the state and spread across three designated centers, namely: The Lagos State University (LASU) , Lagos State Polytechnic (LASPOTECH) and University of Lagos(UNILAG).

The programme, the third edition, also had 20,000 students in their penultimate classes training online.

At the end of the training in October, the best 2,000 would be placed on a six- month internship at various corporate companies with a monthly sum of 10,000 naira.

Addressing students in the second week of the programme in LASU, Special Adviser to the Governor on Education, Mr Obafela Bank-Olemoh, chargedthem to take advantage of the training to improve themselves.

“You have no excuse to fail because you have access to information to advance yourself. You are the products of your most dominant thought. The Lagos State Government has given you a platform to excel. Make good use of it and always have God in mind.”

He explained that the programme was in response to address issues of incompetency of graduates, reduce unemployment and to instil an entrepteneurship mindset among youths.

He said they would “learn the skills they need to succeed. So, we are focused on soft skills, how to be adaptable, emotional intelligence, how to think, understand the socio-economic setup of the country and in the end, they are well prepared to succeed”.

He added that since the inception of the programme in 2016, feedbacks from firms on interns’ performances had been positive and encouraging.
