Business Morning: Vacational Training, Panacea For Unemployment In Nigeria

business vacational trainingAbout 150,000 graduates are churned out annually by Nigerian universities and polytechnics without entrepreneurial skills and so available jobs remain inadequate to keep pace with this ever-expanding army of job seekers.

The Head, German Industry and Commerce, Mr Andre Roenne and Coordinator, German Dual Vocational Training Partnership with Nigeria, Mr Kehinde Awoyele, who were guests on Channels Television’s Business Morning, stressed that vocational training has been identified as the best means of reducing the level of unemployment among youths in the country.

This is because it helps prepare them for the immediate needs of the labour market.

According to them, vocational training has led to the development of a highly efficient workforce in some nations and they recommended the same for Nigeria to foster job creation and reduce unemployment.
