Graduate Jobs in Nigeria

Centre for International Advanced and Professional Studies (CIAPS), has launched a programme to help graduates get jobs in their chosen career. The Centre Director Prof Anthony Kila, whilst launching the new CIAPS fast track programmes for graduates explained that the plan is based on the CIAPS’ OBE Programmes.

The CIAPS OBE Programmes according to Prof Kila “are Outcome Based Educational programmes built on research and the inputs we get from dynamic organisations about their recruitment needs as well as their employment and development strategies”.

CIAPS Fast-track Professional Programmes for Graduates

A major aim of the programme is to address the employability of many graduates and young people. Rather than focusing on just theory and academic curriculum, CIAPS is working with multinational companies and other various kinds of organisations and employers to establish what kind of graduates these organisations and employers need, what skills and knowledge these graduates should possess. This way graduates will be training for a real job and career rather than just for a certificate.

The programmes will also help young people and graduates familiarise themselves with the working environment as a fundamental part of their study at CIAPS will be their work-experience, work-placements and other various kind of internships.

Many of the companies working with CIAPS on these programmes are eager to employ but cannot find the right people, many of the graduates they find are just not ready for the work environment. CIAPS’ plan through its fast track programmes is to bridge this gap by providing training for graduates and helping them reach employers.

Programme Aim
The scheme aims to generate thousands of jobs.
