The Vocational trainings are sponsored by the Lagos state government in partnership with various organizations.
Industry relevant skills will be provided in trades that cut across key sectors of the economy. The Employability Support Project presents a good opportunity for unemployed youths in Lagos State to empower themselves, start a career in their chosen field and drastically improve their prospects at securing jobs. The programme also aims to place successful trainees in jobs after training has been completed.
