- ULDA, Bosch Partner to Train Artisans
Universal Learn Direct Academia (ULDA) Limited is partnering Robert Bosch Nigeria to tackle the dearth of local artisans.
The Dean of the institution, Mr Tunde Faleye said his organisation facilitates skills training in the main vocations of the building and construction industry, such as carpentry, plumbing, electrical, brickwork, block work, plastering, tiling, site engineering, using internationally experienced professionals to mentor trainees.
The Key User Manager-Nigeria, Robert Bosch Limited, Mr Nurudeen Abdulahi said his organisation supports quality artisans training with potential for jobs with a promising future.
He said his organisation is involved in the partnership with the common goal of preparing the next generation for the future.
As part of the partnership, he said his organisation will work with the trainees to provide a learning experience and give them new ideas for their everyday working life.
The firm’s after Sales Manager, Edwin Eromokhodion, said the partnership was designed to create, up-skill and grow tech entrepreneurs.
According to him, artisans will now be able to buy the very latest power tools developed by Bosch.
This, he explained, would contribute a significant improvement in increasing efficiencies.
At Bosch, Eromokhodion said the company uses its resources and expertise to improve skills and create economic opportunities.
One of the partners in ULDA, Alhaji Lukman Guru, said the growth in infrastructure development in the Middle East has resulted in a construction boom. The boom has catalysed in increased demand for artisans. According to him, hiring artisans with the right skills and experience has been a challenge. He said the institute is running a training programme to recruit Nigerians to work in the region.
