GRADUATE EMPLOYMENT: GIS HOLDS SENSITIZATION FORUM IN KOGI STATE
The Graduate Internship Scheme (GIS), an offshoot of the Subsidy Reinvestment and Empowerment Programme (SURE-P) aimed at providing young graduates with temporary work placement, recently carried out a sensitization and mobilization campaign for firms in Kogi State.
The enlightenment campaign was necessitated by the poor response of firms in Kogi State to the Graduate Internship Scheme (GIS) which is developed by the current administration to mitigate the high level of graduate unemployment in the country.
Graduate Internship Scheme
The Graduate Internship Scheme (GIS) was launched in October, 2012 to create opportunity for graduates to be attached to firms /organizations, where they can work for a year and enjoy a monthly stipend of N18,000. Such interns can use the opportunity to gain working experience and enhance their employability.
The project has commenced registration of such firms and over 84,000 beneficiaries have been registered. This is beyond the threshold of 50,000 allotted for the scheme in any given year. Deployment of such beneficiaries has commenced.
