The Graduate Advancement Programme (GAP) Network is an intervention that addresses three critical areas that plague young graduates: lack of skills, unemployment or underemployment and lack of employment opportunities.
These issues are addressed in a structured way through the GAP Network support system that affords participants to interact with Trainers, Counsellors, Mentors, Human Resource Managers, Employers of labour and other professionals to provide composite skills graduates require to gain employment and grow their careers.
GAP Network is a six-week intensive programme that will expose graduates to two weeks employability skills training; one month job shadowing; career counselling and mentorship sessions so that they will be thoroughly prepared for the work environment. At the end of the programme, Graduate Members would work with KEC Career Service Unit and KEC partners to be matched with an employer.
All applications will be screened and candidates that meet the conditions for selection will be enrolled into the programme.
Graduates Members will go through 2 weeks (10 days) of intensive training covering over 16 employability courses
Graduates Members will have the opportunity to put into practice some of the skills they have learnt in class.
The GAP Network will provide graduate members access to job opportunities through our partner organisation.
