FG Urged To Change School Curriculum To Accommodate Skill Acquisition

school curriculum, skill acquisitionA Human Resources Development expert, Fola Ogunsola, wants the federal government to change school curriculum to accommodate skill acquisition programmes that go beyond classrooms.

She made the call at a life after school development lecture for students of the Osun State University, Ikire Campus in Osun State.

She revealed that only about 10% of Nigerian graduates who leave the higher institutions annually can be said to be employable to employers of labour.

This, according to her, is because many of the graduates have not been well groomed for the basic skills required to sustain a job.

The HR expert also told Channels Television that the crisis between Nigerian youths and the labour market is more of employability of the products being churned out by higher institutions of learning in the country than a problem of the number of jobs available.

The expert berated the academic curriculum of Nigerian universities stating that Nigerian higher institutions of learning, in the 21st century are still only able to impact less than 20% of skills required by prospective employers of labour into their graduates.

He stressed that graduates are usually not well groomed for the task ahead after school.

She also implored graduates to stop putting blames on government, but rather enhance their skills.
