The Industrial Training Fund (ITF) has said its launch of a technical skills acquisition programme is an attempt to create jobs for the youths, address the skills deficit in the industrial sector of the economy and give the organised private sector value for their training contributions.

The Director General/Chief Executive Officer of the organisation, Joseph N. Ari disclosed this at the weekend in Lokoja during the graduation ceremony of the 4th batch of trainees of the ITF-NECA technical development project.

He said the trainees graduated on time to complement the technical skills required for national industrial growth with a heavy influx of investors into the country.

To meet up the national requirements, he said the organisation is partnering with a number of other countries in skills training and development by establishing technical and vocational skills training centres in all 36 states, including FCT, Abuja.

He stated that the programme is being funded by the collaborative efforts of the ITF and the Nigeria Employers Consultative Association (NECA).
