Industrial Training Fund (ITF) officials have paid a courtesy visit to the management of Skyline University Nigeria (SUN). The visit was to enable familiarity and discuss more areas of collaboration between the university and ITF.
In his opening remarks, the Vice-Chancellor of Skyline University Nigeria (SUN), Prof. Ajith Kumar V. V., said the management was excited to receive the ITF officials. He said their visit came at a strategic time for the university, as it crosses over 5 years of establishment. The institution is continuously incorporating recent global trends in technology and innovation in teaching and learning, he said.
He added that the university currently has 174 students on the Students Industrial Work Experience Scheme (SIWES) spread across 11 states in Nigeria including the F.C.T. He also said that the students have been rightly placed in several organizations to learn the necessary skills that would support their distinctive careers.
On his part, Mr. Abba Ibrahim Wada, the Head of Training at the ITF office in Kano State said their visit was to commend the management of SUN, for its unrelenting support in enabling students to have fruitful SIWES experiences as they prepare for future tasks.
Mr. Ibrahim said ITF is pleased to understand that the university is focused on the effective supervision of the students at their various places of work, to make them productive and functional after the completion of their degrees.
The Vice-Chancellor then appreciated ITF for its continuous support towards the development of students’ careers and assured them of the university’s effort to inculcate employability skills in them so that they become job creators and not job seekers.
