As the head of a Tertiary Institution that is privilege to participate in the ReadySetWork Initiative, I can attest to the fact that the programme has delivered to the students 3 critical benefits; a. Providing access to inspirational mentors. b. Oppourtunity for students in various Institutions to network. c. Opportunity for students to learn critical values necessary to thrive in the world of work.
The RSW project stretched me beyond my wildest dreams but the idea that I was pouring into young hearts and helping them become productive members of the society made it exciting.
I want to use this opportunity to say a big thank you and congratulations to the Lagos State Government for this laudable project and allowing be a part of it.
These RSW chaps are very eager to learn. I enjoyed getting up on stage to share my experience with them but it felt even better joining and learning with them. Their energy is so contagious.
I must say my experience facilitating at the RSW program was spectacular. Quiet demanding making selfless sacrifice of some of my weekends but the joy is seeing these student excel in their endeavors. Thank you LASG for this initiative, thank you RSW for the honour of been part of this investment in the future and working with generals of our time. Cheers.
It was an awesome experience to be part of the RSW 2.0 as a facilitator. I strongly believe RSW is the best thing that has happened to education in Nigeria and been part of it is a huge opportunity to give back to the society.
My experience so far was fulfilling, I remember one Saturday after the training session with the students, a student walked up to me and told me how much she was inspired, that she’s going back home to focus on her dreams. I’ve never felt this feeling of fulfillment ever in my life before.
It’s often said that there’s a wide berth between graduates’ skills, and what employers (and the labour market) actually need. RSW brought that to life for me. Brilliant project, excellent execution, and all round great experience. I wish I was able to give more time to it. I eagerly look forward to RSW 3.0.
RSW 2.0 has been an amazing experience I must say. Nothing beats the feeling of seeing the very visible and positive transformation in the students after 13 life changing weeks. I feel truly privileged to have been part of RSW 1.0 and now 2.0. It’s with excitement that I look forward to being part of RSW 3.0, God willing!
My experience with the RSW programme was indeed an incredible one. I did not only have the opportunity to give back to the society but also to add an immeasurable value to myself. I must say the programme is a WIN WIN situation for everyone involved in it. Ready Set Work is a necessary initiative that every states should be encouraged to emulate for a better Nigeria. Thank You Lagos State Government. Thank You Laspotech Chapter for the enabling environment.
My RSW experience was an engaging, eye opening one. It afforded me the opportunity to learn and meet new people from different works of life. Above all, it was a rewarding and fulfilling experience. Will definitely join next year.
RSW showed me the impact that committed and purposeful political will could make in the lives of its citizens. I was inspired by the organizing team led by SA Education, humbled by the selflessness of my facilitator – colleagues and totally fulfilled at the metamorphosis of the initially hesitant students from “gown” thinking to “town” readiness, confidently contributing to the world of work and entrepreneurship.
The RSW program this year has once again been inspirational and rewarding. I have thoroughly enjoyed the journey form the start to finish and would always want to be part of this program and team. I would like to say a special thank you to Lagos state for the support, care and concern to all the students and facilitators alike also to Generation enterprise and to all the centers and the support staff that have all been key in making this program a success. I am looking forward to be a part of this next year.
It’s really been a wonderful opportunity to have met and worked with the RSW faculty for this period of 13weeks, I must say i did not only impart but I learnt more both from the student and my Laspotech team members, i use this opportunity to thank the Lagos State Government for taking such a wonderful step in training and preparing graduates for the labour market, and I implore every state to follow these marks.(looking forward to RWS 3.0).
I witnessed such a high level of dedication and eagerness to impart the lives of others positively on the part of the RSW team and the volunteer facilitators. I was invited to train but I ended up learning so much. Thank you for this awesome experience.
It was Isaac Newton who said “If I have seen further than others, it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants”.I am confident that ReadySetWork has set the graduands apart and will make them stand up tall in the discharge of their duties in the workplace. Congratulations to the entire team and Bravo to the Lagos State Goverment. Ready Set Go!”
This program has made me discover my soft skills which I need to excel in the labour market and how to face the challenges out there because the learning environment is a different scenario from what obtains in the real world.
Giving my Saturdays to RSW was an utterly rewarding experience for me. The faces I saw at the beginning eager to assimilate knowledge are now the faces ready to revolutionize businesses and the workplace. I volunteered to help students learn skills that would be important in life but I ended up learning invaluable lessons from them. They came as students but they leave as EMPLOYERS and EMPLOYEES. Nothing is more fulfilling.
The entirety of the RSW 2.0 project was a learning, teaching/impacting, and networking experience for me. I commend the brilliance, dedication and commitment of the organizers, facilitators and students!
The RSW programme has been an exhilarating experience for me this year. It’s been another great opportunity to add value to the lives of young, talented minds and equally a privilege to contribute to the success stories of their lives. This is a must-have opportunity for every student in Nigeria! Thank you Lagos State for this wonderful, worthy and impactful initiative!”
My experience at the ReadySetWork training programme has been educative, inspiring and live changing. The training programme has been interestingly interactive even from our highly esteemed mentors, facilitators and also to my fellow students. I appreciate the organizers of the ReadySetWork program for giving me this opportunity, it has been a worthwhile programme for me. Thanks.
The best part of being part of RSW is the transformation you see in real time and the palpable passion from the amazing group you get to work with.
My life’s passion is inspiring people by helping them see life through the prism of possibilities via knowledge. Indeed, Ready.Set.Work was a privileged platform to be myself and fulfill the core of my cravings. To see many students transform tremendously over a 13week concentrated period, and imbibe the knowledge taught was intensely gratifying. Candidly, I – alongside other facilitators, have not just been able to aid their knowledge and preparations for the professional world, I have also made a few friends by the side, who I hope to keep influencing positively in the future. Big thanks to the Lagos State Government and the Office of the Special Adviser on Education for giving even more meaning to man-a-life across the state. Can’t wait for Ready.Set.Work 3.0
