The Federal Government, has said it is going to train 15,000 Nigerians in Technical and Vocational training Program (T-VET) through the project Team Maximization (T-Max) across seven states in Nigeria.
The Project is part of the Federal Government’s intervention to alleviate poverty from at least 100 million Nigerians by the year 2030.
This was mentioned by the Special Adviser to the President on Education Intervention, Mr. Fela Bank-Olemoh, on Monday, during a courtesy visit to the Ministry of Education, Lagos.
While addressing the press, Mr. Bank-Olemoh, stated that 3000 Nigerians would be trained in Lagos, while the other 12,000 will be trained in Ogun, Edo, Enugu, Kaduna, Nasarawa and Gombe respectively, adding that the portal would be opened for registration on the 1st of September and would go on for three-weeks.
He added that these T-VET centers will run with full capacity. He asked that those T-VET Centers that have training centers in fields like Plumbing, Electricity, Automotive, ICT and others to key into the program.
This will enable the Federal Government to register the trainees, send them to the centers and pay for their trainings over the next three months.
He said, “Our expectations is to confirm the fact that we don’t need to build more T-VET centers to train our people. We already have centers that we can maximize their capacity. Let’s use them to the fullest.”
