The Ugandan government is rolling out an apprenticeship programme for skilling and re-skilling citizens starting this July.
This was yesterday revealed by the Assistant Commissioner for Occupational Safety in the Ministry of Gender, Labour and Social Development, Alex Asiimwe, while speaking during the 73rd State of the Nation platform on the theme “Greening Uganda’s Economy as a Sustainable Pathway to Middle Income Status,” the event was organized by policy advocacy group Advocates Coalition for Development and Environment – ACODE in Kampala.
Apprenticeship is a method of training in which trainees learn a craft or trade by hands-on experience while working with a skilled worker.
The programme according to Asiimwe will see people who never went to school being given on-the-job training in various skills like carpentry, welding, driving, building, mechanics, bakery, catering, hairdressing, landscaping, amongst others.
