Centre unveils outcome-based training to boost job opportunities
The Director, Prof Anthony Kila who disclosed this at the launch of the new CIAPS fast track scheme for graduates tagged, “Outcome Based Educational (OBE) programmes, said the new initiative is built on research and inputs from dynamic organisations about their recruitment needs as well as employment and development strategies.
Kila explained that the programme, billed to commence in April is designed to address the employability of many graduates and young people.
He said, “Rather than focusing on just theory and academic curriculum, CIAPS is working with businesses and different organisations and employers to establish the kind of graduates they need as well as the skills and knowledge these graduate should possess. This way, graduates will be training for real jobs and career rather than just for certificates.”
“Many of the companies working with CIAPS on these programmes are eager to employ but cannot find the right people, many of the graduates they find are just not ready for the work environment. CIAPS’ plan through its fast track programmes is to bridge this gap by providing very practical training for graduates and help them reach employers.
“The scheme aims to generate over a hundred jobs. The fast track programmes would start in April and last for about three months. The main areas of study are for Senior Personal and Executive Assistants, Media and Journalism, Business Management, Banking and Finance, School Management, Business Development, Project Management, Events Management, International Tutor Certificate Political Campaign Management as well as Production and Operations Management,” Kila added.
