Programme Overview

Today education seems not to be paying its prize after so much investment and commitment to it. It has left our unsuspecting youths morally, emotionally and spiritually empty. Schooling to find a job these days appears to be a sheer waste of time. Indeed why spend 4-6 years of your life going through a system that leaves you in want, hopeless and stranded?

In our view, you can rechannel that time, investment and commitment to something else that is more satisfying, and less time-consuming.

The world of work has changed drastically. Most entry-level jobs now demand the most basic skills that don’t require tertiary education to acquire.

Here is introducing the P4PE First Skills Academy (FSA). This programme will be piloted for three (3) years and will attempt to address the following issues:

  1. The Lack of employability skills of entry-level workers for basic jobs
  2. The barrier that only graduates of universities and polytechnics can do entry-level jobs
  3. Creation of job opportunities for thousands of Nigerians (?)

FOCUS

The Programme focuses on:

  1. Employability Skills – Develop work skills needed in today’s work environment
  2. Entrepreneurship skills – Teach business skills for self-reliance and sustainability. This is a 2in1 programme (learn two skills in one year)
  3. Personal Productivity Skills – Teach self-management and life/leadership skills to participants
  4. Hands-on Experience – programme stretches into live projects and internships to gain the experience required to stake their claim of employability.
