Nigeria's unemployment rate, which jumped from 18% to 23% between 2017 and 2018, has been disproportionately borne by the youth, with almost 30% of them currently out of work.
This situation is likely to worsen, as there is no shortage of factors contributing to the increase in youth unemployment; one of them being the education system.
In order to effect meaningful institutional and industry change, work readiness must become a core objective of educators and this begins with an in-depth understanding of the graduate supply chain and stakeholders, i.e., its direct and indirect influencers.
We have also worked on the Competency-Based Education and Learning (CBEL) Report which provides valuable insights and communicates the highlights and findings from the different stakeholders in the education system.
The report outlines how educators, parents, regulators and other stakeholders are thinking about the skills mismatch challenge that exists between the education system and the employment system.
