Young people in Uganda are grappling with the challenge of limited opportunities, lack of skills and uncertainty about how to gain meaningful employment or become entrepreneurs. With the Ready to Work training, young people will be empowered with the training, support and learning they need to enhance their employment and self-employability prospects.
This training will further prepare young people for the critical transition from education into the world of work. It will be based on four modules namely: Work Skills, People skills, Money Skills and Entrepreneurial skills.
@ReadytoWorkUg is targeted at High school students in their A-level, University students, Tertiary institutions and graduates who already completed their respective courses but are looking to better their employability skills. This training is also appropriate for persons of all ages interested in scaling up their skills in any of the four module areas.
‘ReadytoWork’s primary aim is to improve the employment prospects of young people through education resources, online content, workshops and work experience, better equipping them to find work opportunities or start up their own business.
The ReadytoWork curriculum is currently in the process of being accredited through the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) which is recognised in all of Barclays’ 12 Africa markets.
