[RECOMMENDED] Lagos Opens Website To Register Undergraduates For Internship Scheme

I continue to shake my head at the irony of the situation in which supposed graduates from Nigerian institutions keep “NEEDING” brushing up and polishing to make them more “employable” AFTER they exit tertiary institutions they spent YEARS preparing in!

My argument remains that MANY of our kids are being made to pass through these institutions learning courses in fields they are VERY unlikely to easily find jobs in, or qualify for by way of employability.

It is my considered opinion that we NEED to get real and guide our kids to acquire real world relevant education based on their identified geniuses/talents.

That way, ALL this wasteful spending of money on pseudo-tertiary-education, that ends up needing the graduates to the “retrained”(!) to be able to ADD value to the real world, would not be necessary!!!

The news report previewed/linked below is heartwarming to the extent that it announces efforts by the Lagos State government to go beyond just giving jobs and training to graduates.

 

I say this especially because of the extra steps being taken  – as highlighted below – to develop a sustainable model that is built into the existing schooling system.

In a forthcoming article, I will publish transcript excerpts I’ve typed out from a video in which the Vocational Skills based education system of a European country with the highest Youth unemployment rate in the world, is compared with the College tuition based education system of a North American nation whose youth unemployment rates keep climbing.

The differences between results being obtained in both economies are stunning in their implications – and offer the rest of us valuable lessons on changes we need to make!

This is happening via what Lagos State Government calls the:

“Ready.Set.Work (RSW) scheme which is an entrepreneurship and employability initiative designed to equip final year students of tertiary institutions in the State with the right skills to add value to the society.”

Lagos is choosing to go a step further to (quote):

“…integrate the RSW into the education curriculum of the State, and also expand the modules as well as the benefiting institutions.”

The Lagos State Government on Thursday announced the opening of its website to register intending applicants for the 2017 edition of Ready.Set.Work (RSW) scheme which is an entrepreneurship and employability initiative designed to equip final year students of tertiary institutions in the State with the right skills to add value to the society.

Special Adviser to Governor Akinwunmi Ambode on Education, Mr Obafela Bank-Olemoh, who disclosed this at a news conference in Lagos, Southwest Nigeria, said interested applicants would be able to access the website – www.readysetwork.com.ng from June 16, while the training would run from July 1 to September 16, 2017.
