In partnership with Mastercard Foundation, The Forum for African Women Educationalists (FAWE) trained scholars on job readiness. The training’s aim was to prepare trainees to get, keep and excel in their future careers.
It is in this context that FAWE Rwanda organized a four days training on Job Readiness Training (JRT) for 129 of its MCF Scholars, who will be entering into their third year at university to support them earlier to make meaningful career plans as they prepare to join the job market.
Murekatate claire, a trainee, said that this training was very beneficial.
‘’this training was very beneficial, I got many things, the key ones are time management, both setting goals and making plans.’’ -She said.
Expressing her deep feelings, Murekatete added that training built in her the spirit of self- reliance and self-confident.
‘’Actually, this training came like a solution that was needed, […] They taught me how to be unique. My uniqueness : the employer doesn’t need exactly me ; he needs the value in me. That means that I have to show what I have in me not like the physical appearance, the background : like believing that maybe my uncle or anyone else will help me ; My ability and my skills will help me to find the work.’’- She added
In a four days training, Scholars had time to go out of class in different activities like building tower… which purpose was to build a value of time management and teamwork in apprentices.
The training took place at IPRC Kigali on 18 till 21 September.
