Education is one of the earliest social services to be introduced to Nigeria. Education is very important for sustaining and developing people. With education, people are able to endure, mature, acquire experience, wisdom and the capability to fend for themselves as well as serve their communities and nation.
However, Education is seen as a formality (just for doing sake) and it does not serve its main purpose, because after going through the educational process, taking the next step or finding the next path becomes really difficult.
[According to the National Bureau of Statistics, Nigeria’s unemployment rate as at the second quarter of 2020 is 27.1% indicating that about 21,764,614 (21.7 million) Nigerians remain unemployed. Nigeria’s youth remain the hardest hit by unemployment with over 13.9 million people aged between 15 and 34 years unemployed. Graduates and postgraduates combined made up about 2.9 million of the total Nigerians that are unemployed.]
In a surprising data, out of the 35.5 million Nigerians that are fully employed, 28.8 million of them never attended school (6.29 million) or did not have a tertiary education (22.5).
There is a crucial need to bridge this gap of Graduate and post-graduate employment. What is being taught at the tertiary level of education is very much needed, however, there needs to be an improvement in the curriculum and the development of employable skills would enable the Youths to be assets in the labour market.
InstinctHub aims to bridge the gap in learning, skills development and acquiring the needed knowledge to be sought out. We see the advantage in personal development and acquiring technical skills for future purposes.
As part of this goal, we have initiated the Student Achievement Gap Initiative (SAGI), where we look to engaging Universities in Nigeria, enlightening the students with information on the advantage and need to develop technical skills that are relevant in the world today.
The process of this initiative is straightforward; engage students to understand their skill gap and where they need reinforcement, enrol them in our various courses and workshops, monitor their progress and engage them to become productive and resourceful.
Our goal is to engage every university in Nigeria. Location is not a barrier, in fact, the flagship program started with the University of Maiduguri (UNIMAID) on the 14th November 2020.
The SAGI gives students a better understanding of what they need to do to achieve these skills, what they would gain and how they can put themselves forward as assets to employers and use their skills to fend for themselves.
