Nigerians are set to benefit from Project Management training from a UK-based organization named Almond Careers. It was disclosed that a two-day project management training empowerment for Nigerians youth in consonant with the organization goal of making training participants empowered and professionally equipped for employment anywhere in the world.
The Founder of Almond Careers, Mr. Henry Mbadiwe said the workshop is scheduled to hold from April 8 to 9, 2017 in Lagos State.
He disclosed that “Our idea is to train all the people who are going to come On Saturday and Sunday. We are giving them all the knowledge of business management. We are looking at the theory part of it. After the training of the 50 participants, we will put them into teams and will link them with our teams in the UK. They will work collaboratively on a project from start to finish. Although we have thought them whatever they need to learn, it is not enough.
‘’We will make sure that we get one of our real projects and combine them with our team members in the UK so that they will have experience of working in an international company, working across borders, and working with people that live in a different country using the methodologies that we thought them. When they finish with the training, it is not just the knowledge but they will get work experience from a British company and network with people.
‘’Now that the individual has been able to deliver a project from start to finish, the person will have the references to proof it on his CV and recommendations from the companies. We will now have to help the people to look for jobs in Nigeria; and all across the world. International companies hire people from India and bring them to work in other countries. I want them to start taking people from Nigeria. When a Nigerian who lives in Nigeria has delivered a project for a British company, the same company will give a recommendation to the person to get another job in the UK and other parts of the world. This training is going to change participants and make them more equipped.’’
