The National Directorate of Employment (NDE) has flagged off a three-month training for no fewer than 236 trainees under its Sustainable Agricultural Development Training Scheme (SADTS), Basic National Apprenticeship Scheme (B-NOAS) and Advanced National Open Apprenticeship Scheme (A-NOAS).

The state NDE coordinator, Alhaji Yerima Sa’adu Iya, while addressing the participants in Katsina Wednesday said the skills training was aimed at ensuring a pool of artisans that would address the shortages at the rural and urban centres.

According to him, the training when completed would assist in promoting economic activities in their respective areas.

Under the Sustainable Agricultural Development Training Scheme, he said 100 male and female participants selected from across the 34 LGAs of the state would be trained in modern agricultural technology such as livestock and crop production.

The state NDE boss added that, another 136 selected participants from across the state under the Vocational Skills Development and Special Public Works would undergo training in carpentry, tailoring, electrical installation, GSM repairs, flowering, grass carpet, POP, concrete pillars and beams.

He however explained that graduates of the Basic National Open Apprenticeship Scheme B-NOAS, would benefit from the Advanced National Open Apprenticeship Scheme A-NOAS programme.
