Skills Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development Sensitization Workshop in Nigeria

The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in Nigeria is a programme designed for fresh graduates of universities and polytechnics to undertake one year mandatory national service in various public and private institutions/establishments at the end of which they are discharged into the already saturated labour market. The question therefore is in the absence of job openings: What happens to hundreds of thousands of Corps members that pass out every year without marketable skills?

The objectives of the sensitization workshop on Skills Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development (SAED) with over 250 Corps members in attendance were to:

  • Sensitize Corps members on the need to acquire vital job creation skills;
  • Provide information on different skills training/trades available at the CETVETAR UNEVOC centre;
  • Make presentations on competencies required for job creation and
  • Provide opportunity for talks/interactions with corps members to express their skills acquisition challenges.
