The registration portal of the Lagos State Graduates 2020 Internship Programme is open to 4000 unemployed graduates at www.gipplasg.lagosstate.gov.ng.
Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has approved an internship program for 4,000 unemployed graduates in line with the T.H.E.M.E.S Policy of the current administration and the State Youth Development Programme as part of efforts to reduce the unemployment rate in Lagos State.
Speaking recently on the programme with newsmen, the Honourable Commissioner for Wealth Creation and Employment, Mrs Yetunde Arobieke, said the Graduate Internship Placement Programme (GIPP) is designed to give candidates the opportunity to develop employability and work-ready skills that are needed in securing gainful employment.
She added that the Internship Programme will be addressing the third and fourth pillars of the present administration’s T.H.E.M.E.S agenda, which are Education and Technology and Making Lagos a 21st Century Economy, while the beneficiaries will be paid a monthly stipend of N40,000 for the six months duration of the internship.
Arobieke informed that at the end of the internship period, interns would have gained valuable applied work experience, built up their professional skills and would have been exposed to possible entrepreneurial opportunities to strengthen their professional skills and interpersonal relationship.
The Commissioner, therefore, implored interested candidates to apply through the dedicated link for the programme: gipplasg.lagosstate.gov.ng, stressing that interested applicants must possess NYSC Certificates or letters of exemption, and must be registered residents of the State with Lagos State Residents Registration Agency, LASRRA.
While informing that over 50 off-takers have shown interest in having the Interns work in their organisations, Arobieke maintained that the selection process will be transparent as successful candidates after taking an online test will be trained on employability skills for two weeks and evaluated; they will, subsequently, be placed on six months paid Internship with Private organisations and selected Public Agencies in line with their qualifications.
