YEA to introduce internship module

YouthUnemploymentThe Director of the Youth Employment Agency (YEA), Mr Mohammed Pelpou has disclosed that the agency would soon introduce an Internship Module for graduates.

Under the module, graduates would be registered to enable them undertake an internship with the various metropolitan, municipal and district assemblies and credible private institutions in the country.

This he added is to prepare graduates to acquire the requisite job experiences in their field of studies to enable them meet the demands of employers.

Speaking to Ghana News Agency in Koforidua, Mr Pelpou explained that tertiary graduates would be targeted and rational beneficiaries would be under training for two years in addition with the one year National Service to prepare them for the job market.

He said selections would be done based on the requirements of the agencies database and qualifications of beneficiaries would be considered to ensure that the right people are selected to occupy the right positions.

To eliminate discriminations, he said names that would be provided by agencies or companies would not be accepted by YEA and urged the public to go through the right channel to be absorbed onto the module.

Mr Pelpou said the module would help curb graduate unemployment since beneficiaries would be at the first point of call when there is any opportunity in the agency.

He called on other agencies and credible private entities to submit their requirements to the YEA so as to enroll more youth onto the module.
