The Lagos State Government says it is set to organise internship for 12,000 students in the final and penultimate years across tertiary institutions in the state.
It stated that the training, tagged, ‘Ready. Set. Work’ (RSW), aimed at equipping the students with the right skills to help them become employers of labour and add value to the society.
The Special Adviser to Governor Akinwunmi Ambode on Education, Mr. Obafela Bank-Olemoh said, “When the administration of Governor Ambode came on board, one of the issues he was confronted with from the private sector was that there were major gaps in the work readiness of graduates, and his immediate response was to come up with a scheme to equip graduates from our tertiary institutions with the right skills needed to add value to the society.
“The vision of the RSW is that every graduate from a tertiary institution in Lagos must have the knowledge, skills and attitude required to gain meaningful employment or be self-employed and our plan is to train all graduates in tertiary institutions.”
Eligibility: Students would be selected from Adeniran Ogunsanya College of Education, Lagos State College of Health Science, Lagos State Polytechnic, Lagos State University, Michael Otedola College of Education, and University of Lagos.
