LSETF enrollsc for vocational training
Building on its mission to improve the local economy by creating a skilled and experienced workforce, the Lagos State Employment Trust Fund (LSETF), through its Employability Support Project, has commenced free skills training for the first batch of beneficiaries in the state.
Launched in partnership with the United Nations Development Programme, (UNDP), the employability support project provides six to eight weeks of vocational training to Lagos residents between the ages of 18 and 35 years, with the aim to empower beneficiaries with industry relevant skills that will improve their chances of gaining employment.
Secretary of the Trust Fund, Akintunde Oyebode, explained the role of the project in addressing unemployment in the state, while also creating active youths that can contribute to the socio-economic development of their communities.
According to Oyebode, LSETF has engaged several Vocational Training Centres across the state to facilitate the free skills training course in manufacturing, entertainment, garment making, hospitality, healthcare and construction.
He called on business owners and corporate organizations to take advantage of the employability support project to improve their work force and accelerate the growth of their businesses.
