Sam Onyishi, the founder of a new private university, Maduka UniversityEnugu, said the new institution was designed to tackle rising unemployment in the country.

Mr. Onyishi, who is also the chairman of Peace Mass Transit, disclosed this during a recent interview with reporters in Enugu.

Located along Nsukka Road, Ekwegbe, Igbo-Etiti Local Government Area of ​​Enugu State, the university is expected to commence academic activities in December.

Its construction spear on January 4, 2020.

Currently, there are a total of 216 accredited universities in Nigeria, according to data from the National University Commissionthe country’s university regulator.

These Nigerian institutions produce hundreds of thousands of new university graduates each year who enter an economy that cannot produce enough jobs to absorb them.

In the fourth quarter of 2020, the country’s unemployment rate rose to 33.3%, representing some 23.2 million people, the highest rate in at least 13 years and the second highest rate in the world. world, according to National Bureau of Statistics.

But, Mr. Onyishi said his new university was designed to address the failings of existing institutions, particularly in the area of ​​addressing unemployment issues in the country.

He said the new institution, being an entrepreneurial university, would turn its graduates into employers of labor rather than job seekers, regardless of the course of study.

“People should be able to go to school and get out. If you get a job somewhere, that’s fine, but even if you don’t get a job, you should be able to employ yourself.

“I lay the foundations for autonomy because my university is an entrepreneurial university. The plan is that any graduate of our university should be able to run their own business regardless of what course the graduate is taking,” he said.

The Peace Mass boss added: ‘So if you read the story at our university you should read the story and leave school and be able to work. If you are studying health sciences or law, you should be able to read all of these courses and be able to employ yourself.

Speaking on his strategies, Mr Onyishi said the university’s academic program will be structured to include courses in entrepreneurship and vocational training which will be compulsory for all students of the university, regardless of the program. of studies.

“We’re going to teach you all these courses so that by the time you get out of college you should be a lawyer who can employ you. You should be an attorney for wealth building or self-employment or self-reliance history.

“The long-term goal is human capital development – ​​providing a platform for people to gain knowledge – and then take care of themselves,” Onyishi explained.

The Peace Mass boss said apart from the funds spent on acquiring a tract of land, the university project would gobble up at least $100 million (about 41.7 billion naira) upon completion.

The expert reacts

Commenting on the role of entrepreneurship in job creation, Benjamin Okpukpara, coordinator of the Entrepreneurship and Development Research Center at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, told PREMIUM TIMES that education in entrepreneurship has given people the ability to create jobs for themselves.

“Entrepreneurial education actually changes the mindset of students to think as job creators, not as job seekers,” he said.

Mr. Okpukpara, an entrepreneurship expert, lamented that the activities of internet fraudsters, who flaunt ill-gotten wealth despite not being genuinely engaged in work, affect the level of acceptance of entrepreneurship by young Nigerians.

“To overcome mental and physical poverty, people should find out how they will use their certificates to create jobs, not how to use their certificates to seek white-collar jobs. And all these things start from schools,” Mr. Okpukpara added.

Sonia Sodha’s article brilliantly highlights the unfair advantage enjoyed by young people who can go to college over their counterparts who do not – i.e. a transition to adulthood and government-subsidized, society-supported independent living (“Is it fair that we spend so much to help middle-class children grow into adults?”, Commentary).

There are other structural inequalities that further disadvantage young people entering the world of work (and for whom university may not be an option). The National Living Wage only applies to people over 23, but dental, prescriptions, eye exams and bus travel (in Brighton, anyway) cost 18-22 year olds a full-time job at exactly the same price as for adults 23 and over. finished. Meanwhile, those in full-time college can apply for free low-income prescriptions and free dental care up to age 19; receive income from a student loan that is exempt from their personal tax allowance; and can take advantage of cheaper student travel and discounts on countless goods and services (including eye tests and eyeglasses). There is a lot the government could do to make things better for young people – it seems it just chooses not to. In the meantime, retirees (the largest voting group) continue to enjoy free bus travel, regardless of income.
Lauren Shukru

Sonia Sodha’s race-to-the-bottom logic is ubiquitous. Instead of abolishing tuition fees, investing in schools or ending the rent crisis, should we just defund universities even more? Already, the sector is financed by crippling loans rather than by the government. Universities cannot create their own grading scales, they have external examiners to ensure parity; where it fails is because of corruption induced pricing and funding structures.

If there are more middle-class students than working-class students, we need to fill the gaps in education and opportunity that do so, not further stratify society by sending students of the working class in training. University education inherently has nothing to do with vocational training, and the sooner it is divorced from the idea that society must somehow get its money’s worth, the better.

If, as Sodha claims, “new research suggests that going to college is associated with a decrease in racist and authoritarian attitudes,” that’s all the more reason to encourage more people to go to college. level, whatever work they end up doing. .

Nursery Crimes

Surprise, surprise, crèche recruitment crisis (“Staff shortage forces crèches to close – and it will get worse”, News). A friend with a social science degree, NVQ levels 3 and 5 and over 30 years of experience recently quit her nursery job to stack the shelves at Aldi. Better working conditions, less stress and £1 more an hour in his pay. Says it all.

Starmer’s Missed Opportunity

Keir Starmer accurately, if incompletely, describes the political bankruptcy of this Conservative government (“The sound you can hear are the dying moans of a government overwhelmed”, Commentary). It is disappointing, however, that the only reference he makes to the appalling Brexit mistake, imposed on a misled population by the same crew that is currently mismanaging the country, is to identify potential VAT cuts as a “real advantage of Brexit”. This is, of course, one more that Jacob Rees-Mogg has identified, but, failing to address the folly of the government’s version of Brexit and its destructive impact on our politics, our economy, our security and our reputation, Starmer fails to lead and does not initiate dialogue with a view to repairing the damage caused by it.

The fog of war

It is remarkable that there are still those who want to defend the accuracy of Denis Avey’s account of his life as a British prisoner of war in Auschwitz (“Hero or hoax? New story of doubts about the man who broke into Auschwitz“, News).

Avey’s memoir is perhaps unique in that it is a false account based on two other textual deceptions (Charles Coward’s The password is courage and Driver by Donald Watt). There is no doubt that Avey wanted recognition very late in his life and, rather than just writing about what was a horrific experience, built himself up as a savior of Jews. That he does is perhaps understandably so unfortunate, but the lack of care taken to verify the ridiculous elements of his story does no credit to the editors and others who helped him write the book and then promoted and Avey. It is to be hoped that the forensic research of Alon Shapira and others will now lead to a major health warning if Avey’s memoirs remain on sale.

Bertie is not Boris

William Keegan wittily uses a scene from PG Wodehouse Much obliged, Jeeves to make a positive comment on the French presidential election, but incidentally calls Bertie Wooster a Boris Johnson-like figure (“France rejected the far right. So Brexit Britain”, Business). It’s a grave insult to Wooster, whose scratches often stem from his attempt to do a favor for a friend, with hilarious results that Jeeves has to save him from. Johnson’s scrapes stem from his own dishonesty and incompetence, from which there are no Jeeves to save the country.

The Problem of Left Capital

To say that “Labour was too relaxed about rampant finance capitalism and too heedless of the downsides of globalisation”, as Andrew Rawnsley has argued, is the understatement of the decade (“Lessons Keir Starmer can learn from the famous New Labour’s landslide victory”, Comment). The “radical advances” he rightly celebrates have been largely undone, as the French economist Thomas Piketty has shown, by a massive transfer and concentration of wealth in the hands of the 1%, and a concomitant fall in the standard of living of the vast majority, creating an unprecedented challenge for potential regulators of capital.

The impoverishment that led millions to vote Brexit in their desperation is now being intensified by Covid and the war, which Labor describes as a cost of living crisis. This is certainly a symptom of a crisis at the heart of which arises a fundamental question for the left: is political regulation a viable solution to capital’s reluctance to coexist with humanity and the planet?

Decline and fall

When quickly reading the Observer, I was first struck by the magnanimous title attached to the article by Tim Adams (“Anyone with a heart is bound to feel sadness at the fall of Boris Becker”, Commentary). Then I realized that, unfortunately, Boris’ downfall was all about someone else. I respectfully suggest that the Observer is considering how his title could be recycled in the near future.

By Express press service

BHUBANESWAR: The Chancellor of Universities and Governor of Odisha, Prof. Ganeshi Lal, on Friday appointed Prof. Geetanjali Dash as Vice-Chancellor of Berhampur University. Professor Dash has been appointed for a period of four years. With over 36 years of teaching experience, including 12 years as a professor, she retired as a professor of political science at Fakir Mohan University. She has written 5 books and has 30 publications to her credit.

Geetanjali Dash appointed VC of University of Berhampur

Obtaining National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) accreditation for colleges affiliated with the University of Berhampur is its priority, Professor Dash told this article. Of 150 affiliated colleges, only 18 have NAAC accreditation. Also, NAAC’s visit to the university is planned. “My immediate priority would be to meet with the NAAC peer team. Although NAAC accreditation is mandatory to provide quality education, many colleges in the University of Berhampur still do not have it due to various reasons. We will provide them with the necessary training and support to apply for NAAC accreditation,” Professor Dash said.

It also plans to improve the employability of students by providing them with vocational training through various courses. Talking about faculty vacancies in the university, she said that OPSC is gradually appointing faculty members in phases and recently 10 of them have joined the institution. “We hope that in the next few months the vacancies will be filled,” she said.

Previously, the chancellor’s office had received 57 applications for the position from academics across the country.

The Vice-Chancellor of Sunyani Technical University (STU) urged graduates to avoid complacency after school and strive to be self-sufficient with acquired skills.

Professor Kwadwo Adinkrah-Appiah also encouraged them to form partnerships, if necessary, and to develop their activities.

He insisted that they will succeed with determination if they make good use of the knowledge they have acquired at university.

Professor Kwadwo Adinkrah-Appiah, VC, Sunyani Technical University

Professor Adinkrah-Appiah believes this would help reduce graduate unemployment.

He advised at the institution’s 14th graduation ceremony at Sunyani in the Bono region.

The occasion also coincided with the launch of the University’s 55th anniversary and the launch of a GHS 300 million endowment fund that is meant to advance the development of the university’s human capital and infrastructure.

Sunyani Technical University VC urged graduates to avoid complacency and strive for self-reliance

The VC said: “The structure of the academic programs at STU has sufficiently prepared you to be self-sufficient as an employer and not as an employee and as a job creator and not as a job seeker” .

While he admits the Covid-19 pandemic has created gaps in national and global economies, he said it also provides opportunities for engineering, technical and vocational education and training (TVET) graduates and entrepreneurial skills.

Sunyani Technical University VC urged graduates to avoid complacency and strive for self-reliance

“You must therefore apply all the technical, professional and entrepreneurial skills you have learned from STU to make a difference in your own life and that of the nation. Start your businesses and make them big business.

“Form partnerships with your friends and family, and with determination and God on your side, you will succeed. However, I urge you not to wallow in your new status as graduates, for the demands of life are just beginning. Let the sky be your limit,” he said.

Sunyani Technical University VC urged graduates to avoid complacency and strive for self-reliance

He charged graduates to be worthy ambassadors of STU and to strive to contribute to the activities of the Alumni Association, including contributions to the new STU Endowment Fund.

A total of 1,779 graduates received B-Tech, HND and Diploma certificates in Engineering, TVET, Applied Science and Technology, Applied Arts, and Business and Management Studies.

Of this number, only 672 (37.8%) are women.

STU Vice-Chancellor Prof. Kwadwo Adinkrah-Appiah said that despite financial clearance which enabled them to recruit 114 new staff and faculty, the University’s existing student-faculty ratio at 1:28 always exceeds GTEC requirements.

He therefore appealed for a new authorization to recruit more professors in order to improve the ratio.

He noted that the university management has initiated efforts to secure a public-private partnership agreement to build a hostel with a capacity of 2,000 beds to provide decent accommodation for students.

Sunyani Technical University VC urged graduates to avoid complacency and strive for self-reliance

Bono Regional Minister Justina Owusu Banahene assured them of the government’s commitment to continue supporting TVET education as it is seen as “a key driver and pillar of national development”.

She urged graduates to make an impact on society and be good role models in word and deed.

Some deserving students received awards, with Salifu Sumaila winning the best graduate student.

Founded in 1967 as Sunyani Technical Institute, the institution was transformed into a polytechnic in 1997 with an emphasis on TVET, and in 2016 it was converted into a technical university following the enactment of the Technical Universities Act 2016 (Act 922) as amended.

DeKALB — High school students in DeKalb and Kane counties had the opportunity this week to explore education options at a future teacher conference hosted by Northern Illinois University.

NIU’s College of Education, Waubonee Community College, and the Valley Education for Employment System (VALEES) program all teamed up to host the event on Wednesday.

VALUES is a regional delivery system established by the Illinois State Board of Education that serves 17 school districts, two area vocational training centers, a special education cooperative, and Waubonee Community College, according to its website. Career Aid covers five counties and works with the College of DuPage, Joliet Junior College and Kishwaukee College to promote vocational and technical training.

LaDonna Dawkins, a high school student from West Aurora, said she’s been taking education classes since her junior year and it determined the type of career she wanted to pursue.

“I won’t say I always knew I wanted to be a teacher, but I will say I loved working with kids,” Dawkins said. “So I knew I wanted to do something in education.”

Wednesday’s event highlighted the opportunities secondary school students could have in the region to pursue careers in education. The conference was funded by a grant from VALEES and a Scaling Education Pathways grant from Waubonee Community College.

“A few years ago we received a grant, Scaling Education Pathways in Illinois,” said Bob Cofield, director of partnerships for the school district in Waubonsee. “This is the one from a state agency funded by NIU. The purpose of this grant project is to streamline the academic path of students.

NIU College of Education Dean Laurie Ellish-Piper addressed the students.

Lindsey Jensen, 2018 Illinois Teacher of the Year and Director of Early Career and Student Development for the Illinois Education Association, was the event’s featured speaker.

“Teachers, we have the power to bring people together, that’s what we do,” Jensen said during his speech. “It’s our job to see in children what they don’t see in themselves… If you don’t take anything else away from what I’m saying today, I hope it’s that the children who need love the most will often ask you for it in the least loving way.

Students from 10 VALEES member schools participated in the conference, including Somonauk High School, Indian Valley Vocational Center and West Aurora High School.

Students dug in small groups on the NIU campus for part of the conference, learning more about future educator curricula that may be available to them through art, music, mathematics and agriculture.

Thomas Adelman, a senior from Somonauk High School who graduates in less than a month, said he wants to continue his education. Although he hasn’t chosen a university yet, he is considering both Waubonsee and NIU.

“Education has always found a way to filter itself into the picture,” he said.

No matter how simple your finances are, no one, except maybe accountants, really appreciates tax time. So if you’re not really a “numbers fan”, don’t worry: the new VU Tax Clinic can help.

On Friday April 22, official guests, VU senior management, staff and students came together to mark the opening of the VU Tax Clinic. Ms Fiona Dillon, Chief Tax Adviser at the Australian Tax Office, gave the official address saying, “It is an absolute pleasure to open the VU Tax Clinic. Although we do our best, the tax system can be complicated and the work you will do is extremely important. You are the future of the tax profession.

Based at the Nicholson Street campus, the VU Tax Clinic provides free services to students, staff and the wider community in West Melbourne. From filing your tax, assisting with tax file number requests, registering business name, and verifying the accuracy of payslips, including superannuation amounts and PAYG deductions, VU’s supervised business students are on hand to help.

The National Tax Clinic program began in 2019 and was initially a pilot program rolled out to ten universities. Today, with the support of the government, the program is a success and for the first time this year, a competitive process put 23 universities in competition, with VU one of the 14 successful applications.

VU Vice-Chancellor Professor Adam Shoemaker said the scheme exemplifies how the university is “doing double differently”. “We are constantly working on innovative ways to provide higher education and professional learning for our students,” he said. “Students will have the unique opportunity to immerse themselves in their industry and directly benefit from work-integrated learning opportunities. VU is proud that the VU Tax Clinic serves communities in West Melbourne and offers free or affordable services.
