The NPower programme was established in Nigeria with the aim of fostering productivity through skill development and valuable knowledge sharing and acquisition for economic growth and social development.
The scheme is structured in a way that participants are trained in several fields that will be helpful for building a successful career and finding a job. Apart from the fundamental knowledge they are exposed to, participants carry out practical skills and engage in progressive innovations as well.
Set up with the purpose of diversifying the economy, the programme also runs graduate and non-graduate packages that target the unemployed.
As NPower administrators would have us believe, the programme features the following packages.
- N-POWER Agro – It is said that those trained under this platform are meant to offer advisory services to farmers across the country. Working with the nation’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, the guys here are expected to disseminate useful information that would boost agricultural activities.
- N-POWER Tax – This programme was mapped out to encourage taxpayers and make them disclose their correct income voluntarily.
- N-POWER Build
- N-POWER Creative
- N-POWER Health
- N-POWER Teach – Here, qualified graduates are engaged to make meaningful technological contributions towards the uplifting of the educational sector.
- N-POWER Tech Hardware
- N-POWER Tech Software
Each participant on the programme is expected to learn and practice every necessary project that will help them create or find jobs via the modular programmes. Also, it is expected that at the end of the programme, the country would have raised thousands of individuals skilled in diverse areas which would, in turn, diversify the economic fortunes of the country.
In view of the above, the handlers are mandated to ensure that participants are equipped with relevant business and technical skills that will harness their livelihood and work outlook.
