SQI College of ICT is closely watching the interaction of industry and academia, getting feedback from our industry partners to provide the needed training while concentrating to contribute industry needed professionals in a very flexible study structure.
Considering the high demand for professional certificates and the challenge in categorizing them like academic certificates, Technical Institutions were approved by the Federal Government to provide an alternative route to higher education, as part of the on-going reform of the Technical and Professional Education sector. We are a private institution that offers competency based-skills in technical or professional education and training at post-basic and post-secondary levels to equip the youth as well as working adults with technical skills and knowledge to meet the increasing demand for skilled manpower in the various sectors of the nation’s economy.
Nigeria’s ability to realize the 2020 vision of becoming one of the twenty largest economies in the world is hugely dependent on the capacity to transform its youthful population into highly skilled and competent citizens capable of fully addressing the needs of the growing economy and competing favorably in the global arena. A large part of the responsibility for preparing such
citizens rests on higher education institutions, but which are constrained by several challenges including
i. Lack of capacity to accommodate the increasing number of applicants;
ii. Low participation of the private sector in skills training and development; and
iii. A mismatch between the training provided and
These challenges pose serious threats to the attainment of the 2020 vision. To address these and many other challenges, Government has approved the establishment of the private sector-led Vocational Enterprise Institutions (VEIs) and Innovation Enterprise Institutions (IEIs) with the major aim of widening access to Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) to serve the needs of industries and self-empowerment of the nation’s citizens. This initiative is one of our drives as a training provider to provide relevant labor market expertise and resources.
We are in collaboration with the Government to ensure that the Federal Ministry of Education (FME) and its agencies remain responsive to the national and global economic challenges of the 21st Century.
