Over 450,000 Nigerians trained by ITF in 2 years

The Industrial Training Fund (ITF) said it has trained over 450,000 Nigerians who are today earning sustainable livelihoods as paid employees, or entrepreneurs, a little over two years since it established a six-year plan tagged; the ‘ITF Reviewed Vision: Strategies for Mandate Actualisation.’

The ITF Director General, Joseph Ntung Ari who made the revelation at a press briefing at Nigerian Union of Journalist (NUJ) Secretariat in Jos, stated that the plan which was unveiled in 2016 was divided into quick wins, short, medium and long-term goals and is expected to terminate in 2022.

Ari said “the overriding objectives of the plan was to accelerate the impartation of technical vocational skills to Nigerians, aggressively address service challenges, tackle infrastructural deficits, expand revenue generation and a gamut of other structures hamstringing the actualisation of the Fund’s mandate.”

He said to ensure its achievement; the ITF had expanded existing skills acquisition programmes and introduced new ones such as the National Industrial Skills Development Programme (NISDP), the Women Skills Empowerment Programme (WOSEP), Training on Wheels, the construction Skills Empowerment Programme, the Skills Training and Empowerment Programme for Physically Challenged among others.

The DG however said despite all the efforts, the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) Report of the 3rd quarter of 2018 revealed that just as the number of the economically active or working age (15-64 years) grew from 110.3 million to 111.1 million, the number of the unemployed equally appreciated from 11.92 million in the first quarter to 13.55 and 15.99 in the second and third quarters.

“This is despite the fact that a Skills Gap Assessment in six priority sectors of the Nigerian economy which was conducted by the ITF in conjunction with the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation that was presented to stakeholders in April 2018 showed that although vacancies existed in all sectors surveyed, they were being filled by persons other than Nigerians because of the lack of requisite skills,” he said.
