Employability is not just about getting a job. Conversely, just because a student is on a vocational course does not mean that somehow employability is automatic. Employability is more than about developing attributes, techniques or experience just to enable a student to get a job, or to progress within a current career. It is about learning and the emphasis is less on ‘employ’ and more on ‘ability’. In essence, the emphasis is on developing critical, reﬂective abilities, with a view to empowering and enhancing the learner, and this is the main objective of this Academy.
It is no longer news that the Niger Delta Ex – agitators under the Presidential Amnesty Programme (PAP), who undergoes trainings in “Automobile Manufacturing and Maintenance” in Innoson Kiara Academy Nnewi, are always loaded with all the skills required to be gainfully employed in Automobile Industries.
Innoson Kiara Academy is one of the best indigenous Technical and Vocation Education Training Institution in Nigeria. This is because of the high quality skilled training provided to trainees who passed through the Institution, thereby making them employable by organisations both within and outside the country.
One of our success stories is the story of one of the immediate past trainees in Mechanic department, named Mr Ita Kingsley, who is currently working with “MANTRACK CATERPILLARS SPECIALIST”, who deals with heavy duty machines. On a telephone conversation with Mr Kingsley, he expressed his joy for gaining such a great experience in the Academy. “I am very proud of Innoson Kiara Academy Nnewi for putting up such a wonderful training centre, I carry out my duties comfortably because, I‘ve got an in-depth knowledge in this field” from your Academy, he said.
