Construction Kaiser Limited offers Employment to LSETF Graduands

Posted on March 6th, 2019

Following the conclusion  of  weeks of intensive Vocational training by the Lagos State Employability Trust Fund (LSETF), Construction Kaiser Limited (CKL) has offered employment to some of the graduands.

The graduands were selected from the Construction related streams and based on their outstanding performance. They were given their employment letters during their graduation ceremony organised by LSETF and Arc Skills in Lagos. Ewoma Oloye, Head Corporate Services CKL, handed over letters of employment to the graduands and implored them to be beacons of professionalism.  The selected candidates will have an opportunity to develop the skills acquired at the LSETF skills acquisition program and also earn a living.

So far, 18 LSETF graduands from the construction related stream have been offered employment by CKL since 2018.  It is worthy to note that some of the LSETF graduands still under the employ of CKL have distinguished themselves to the point of earning promotions in such a short time.

Youth empowerment is a key objective of CKL, and this has been achieved through various schemes offered by the Non-Governmental Organisation of CKL- Kaiser Foundation for Social Development (KFSD). Read more about KFSD –>> http://www.kaiserfoundationsd.org/

KFSD’s partnership with LSETF  began in 2018 with  providing CKL sites and other resources for the training of LSETF beneficiaries. This is in line with one of the foundation’s schemes tagged- Artisan Training Program (ATP). This program is geared at safely improving the quality of construction work processes in order to increase the supply of local artisans in the industry with the right skills set.

LSETF was established by The Lagos State Employment Trust Fund Law 2016 to provide financial support to residents of Lagos State, for job, wealth creation and to tackle unemployment. LSEFT is currently partnering with willing organizations like CKL to make this vision a reality. CKL has made available her construction sites, manpower and resources to train participants in Formwork/Carpentry, Iron bending and Masonry, bridging the skills gap in the construction industry. Over 300 participants have either been trained or are currently undergoing training. Read More about LSETF: https://lsetf.ng/content/employability

 

 


CKL set up KFSD to reduce youth unemployment by developing local talent in the Nigerian construction industry in 2016. The aim of KFSD is to increase the desire for Nigerian youths to study STEM (Science, Technology, Education & Math) related course and to equip artisans with skills required to improve on their services hence providing qualitative work and increasing the market share of the indigenous construction companies. KFSD is passionate about empowering Nigerians and improving industry standards. This passion has led to strategic partnerships with credible organizations like the LSETF among others.
