Victoria University, the fastest growing private university in Uganda, believes that they have a responsibility to offer professional guidance to secondary school leavers. For that matter, together with Success Africa Limited they have organized a five day Leavers’ Plugin training.
They are going to use the program to equip vacists with skills in public speaking and presentation; personal grooming and branding; choices and decision making; financial literacy; talent and alternative careers; life planning and Self-leadership
The program starts Monday 28th March to 1st April 2016 at Victoria University campus. To be part of this program, students are paying Shs100, 000. Over 300 students are expected to attend. The lead facilitator of the training is Ethan Musolini, a renowned motivational speaker and trainer.
Musolini, also the CEO of Success Africa, will be joined by university lecturers and other experienced and inspiring personalities. Oscar Kamukama, the marketing and recruitment specialist at Victoria University, explained that the Leavers Plugin is aimed at keeping students busy and informed during their long holiday.
“We are a university and schools are a feeder for universities. So we target S5 and S6 students because these are guys who will be joining Universities tomorrow. We don’t want them when they are coming to study, we want them in a raw format so that we can grow with them.” Oscar explained why they are engaging the vacists.
