RSW 2.0 Has Commenced

And we’re off!

The 2017 edition of the ReadySetWork training programme officially kicked off on Saturday July 1, 2017 in the 3 training centres across the State namely LASU, LASPOTECH and UNILAG.

Two thousand (2000) students from the 6 participating schools defied the heavy rains that morning to arrive at their various centres as early 7:45am to clock in and register their presence. This year, electronic biometric scanners have been adopted as an added measure of accountability to ensure and track punctually this year.

It’s a great pleasure to welcome you to 2017!

For the majority, a new year is not just the beginning of a calendar year, it is usually welcomed with new expectations and renewed commitment to lead a new lease of life.

For Team RSW, we are excited about the 2nd edition of the training programme to commence later in the year. We are however very encouraged by the feedback that have continued to pour in after the hugely successful conclusion of the RSW training pilot scheme especially with the absorption of the RSW candidates into the real world of work.
