Vocational Skills Training Programme to commence by CEVS – Apply Now

Curriculum Development of CEVS

A: Executive Programmes

Several people now prefer to attempt professional certification of their professional bodies, rather than undergo the tedious post-graduate studies that are often not recognized by the regulatory institutions, thereby rendering most University-based post-graduate certificates technically inferior to professional qualifications. CEVS has developed several courses with robust entrepreneurship curriculum that would appeal to young graduates seeking employment but also for those already on employment but may be getting tired of daily routine or monotonous activities related to being an employee.

  1. Specialization Skill Acquisition

Skills to empower young graduates to becoming employers of labour rather than job seekers, especially in their main field of studies are not taught in most tertiary institutions. Virtually all programmes offered in our tertiary institutions can be annexed to create entrepreneurs as consultants, contractors, suppliers, sale representatives, manufacturers, trainers, sundry service providers etc. but lack of relevant curriculum and skill acquisitions have made it unachievable. CEVS has developed several courses with robust entrepreneurship curriculum that are attractive and would appeal to young graduates.

  1. Vocational Courses

Several professional bodies and regulatory agencies established by government now provide for mandatory licensing of technical service providers (individuals and corporate bodies) to enhance best practices and quality assurance. The training of artisans to enable them qualifies for registration and licensing by regulatory authorities are in high demand. In addition, short courses that could improve service delivery and skills of artisans and other professionals are being offered by CEVS.

  1. Curriculum for Al-Hikmah University Students

Parents are now becoming increasingly conscious of “end results” of tertiary education of their wards as certificates are gradually becoming a little more than a beautifully crafted piece of paper with their name inscribed on it.  Consequently, a robust entrepreneurship curriculum that could enhance employability or outright job creation after graduation would appeal to more parents as offered by CEVS.

 

Schedule

The general course for all participants of CEVS programmes holds on Fridays from 4 – 6.30pm while the other parts of the training hold from 9am – 6pm on Saturdays.
