The National Directorate of Employment (NDE) on Friday trained no less than 50 young people from the Plateau in behavioral disposition and skills acquisition in Jos, the state capital.
Managing Director/Managing Director Malam Nuhu Fikpo said the training was aimed at empowering young people on behavior change towards entrepreneurship.
Represented by Malam Yusuf Umar, he said “it is specifically designed to equip young people with the skills to compete globally on market trends”.
The State Coordinator of the Directorate, Malam Ibrahim Hardo Abdulazeez, in his remarks said that the training, being the first in the state by the Department of Vocational Skills Development under its transformation training program youth, was designed to instill behavioral change in beneficiaries and also to teach them about financial intelligence.
“The program will teach recipients how to properly manage money by setting priorities and following them. The combination of skills acquisition and behavioral transformation will facilitate the desired change in how young people perceive their environment,” he said.
A representative of the beneficiaries, Mrs. Roseline Shakunga, thanked the NDE for the opportunity and gave the assurance that they would do their best to compete globally using the skills learned.
