KADUNA SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS GET EMPOWERED AT TOTAL JOB SHADOW
Total Nigeria Plc partnered with Kasher Consulting to organise the third edition of “Total Job Shadow”, which took place on October 12, 2016 in Kaduna Blending Plant and Sales Office. It is an employee engagement activity designed to increase career awareness among senior secondary school students and to help model students' behavior through examples set by employees who serve as their mentors.
Through the experience at the Job Shadow, the link between classroom learning and practical workplace requirements is re-enforced in the students.
A total of thirty students from the following secondary schools participated at the program: Government day Secondary School Makera, Government day Secondary School Kakuri and Queen Amina College, Kakuri.
Key features of the day's activities include leadership workshop, safety talk as well as pairing of students with employees to enable them experience firsthand the employee's work environment, occupational skills in practice and potential career options.
The overall objective was to expose these young Nigerians to the work environment whilst also inspiring them to dream big and become positive change agents despite the many challenges they face.
