The Lagos State Ministry of Youth and Social Development in collaboration with Jobberman Nigeria has made available FREE soft skills training for you.
Soft skills can be defined as non-technical skills, such as personal effectiveness, communication, creativity and emotional intelligence and teamwork. Our vast experience with job seekers and employers in the past decade has shown that soft skills are a big differentiating factor, especially during such a time where there’s a lot of competition amongst candidates.
Soft skills are traditionally overlooked with academic qualifications perceived to be much more important, however, the real truth is that for a lot of employers they are equally as important.
In May 2020, as part of our mandate to train 5 million job seekers and place 3 million in dignified employment over the next five years in Nigeria, we launched the Jobberman soft skills training program. In November of the same year, we introduced the course on Coursera to provide candidates with a more globally recognised certificate to secure global opportunities.
The free online soft skills training program focuses on equipping young people between the ages of 18-30 with the right skills to compete in the Nigerian job market. So far Jobberman has trained over 60,000 and placed over 50,000 in dignified jobs, 31 of whom are now facilitators on the soft skills training program.Table of Content
