  • In response to the high unemployment rates in over 15 states of Nigeria, The Federal Government of Nigeria through the Public Works, Youth and Women Employment Component of the Subsidy Reinvestment and Empowerment Program (SURE-P) has established the Graduate Internship Scheme (GIS), which aims to provide the unemployed graduate youths with job apprenticeship opportunities that will expose them to skills and experiences relevant to the current labour market and enhance their employability.

    GIS seeks to create opportunity for eligible graduate youths to be placed as interns in reputable public/private sector firms to enhance building the manpower requirement to drive the Nation’s Transformation Agenda and Vision 20:2020. The Scheme will employ 50,000 youth across the country to ensure that their skills have been developed towards empowering them to be employable in the short/medium/long term. GIS will ensure that youths are attached as apprentices in reputable public/private firms for a period of one year where the skills of such individuals will be sharpened.

    The specific objectives of the program are:
    1. To enhance the employability of up to 50,000 unemployed graduates in the 36 states of the Federation and the FCT through internship programs in pre-selected institutions; and
    2. To reduce the vulnerability of unemployed graduates.
    3. To build manpower base towards attaining national development operations.
    4. During this period the Federal Government of Nigeria will be responsible for paying a monthly stipend to the graduate interns. The participating institution will be expected to provide adequate opportunities for training and mentoring the interns.

    Benefits to interns:
    1. Provide interns with skills and information required to enter into work.
    2. Youth empowered to prepare to work for themselves or create jobs for others.
    3. Acquiring skill will protect youth from demand and supply shocks.
    4. Opportunity to sharpen their skills and enhance employability.
    5. Opportunity to build new networks and professional contacts.
