The Career Positioning Program (CPP) targets young adults in the formal and informal sector looking to start working. The program aims to arm young adults with both soft skills and apprenticeship opportunities to enable them become more competent and productive for the modern workplace. To meet the needs of young people in the formal and informal sectors, the program has been divided into two major activities to serve needs of those in the formal and those in the informal sector through:
- The Career Positioning and Mentorship Program
- Tufanye Kazi Training
- The Peer to Peer and Senior Mentoring Program
The Career Positioning and Mentorship Program (CPP), is a competitive pre-employment program targeting fresh graduates aiming to join the formal workforce. This program orients young adults into the job market and equips them with the skills and knowledge they need to become employable. In addition, the program rigorously prepares fresh graduates to promote their professional profiles for internships and different career opportunities.
The annual program takes qualified candidates through a four months Career Orientation course and later places them at various organizations for internships/apprenticeship and job opportunities.
Topics such as self-awareness, personal branding, problem-solving, cv/resume and cover letter writing, advocacy skills, basic writing skills, and entrepreneurial skills are covered. Trainings around these topics are supplemented by practical field excursions, professional development workshops and online databases for career connections for participants.
Re!gnite works hand in hand with local, national and international partners to ensure that program participants have access to apprenticeship opportunities inform of practicum, internships and jobs nationwide and internationally.
