Over 5, 000 youth to gain employability skills through APC Youth Wing

The APC National Youth Wing is set to empower over 5, 000 young individuals with essential workplace readiness and employability skills through its highly anticipated ‘Workplace Readiness and Employability Skills Training Programme, themed “I’m employable.” 

This transformative event is scheduled to take place from June 4-7, 2024, in Abuja.

According to the APC national youth leader, Dayo Israel, the programme “is an employment skills enhancement and office management skills training program that is designed to help young Nigerians aged 16 and above develop the core skills that employers desire, improving their ability to secure a job, retain employment, and move flexibly in the labor market.”

“This programme will equip participants with better personal-branding skills for effective CV and Resume presentation, core workplace skills, new ways of thinking and accomplishing tasks, as well as competitive ways of living in a global society.

“With the theme ‘I’m employable’ this initiative forms one of our major efforts to build the economic capacity of young Nigerians and equip them with the necessary skills, knowledge, and opportunities to contribute meaningfully to their communities, with the underlying objective of contributing to our Nation’s structural transformation and economic growth by enhancing employability and labor productivity and reducing unemployment.”
