Building training capacity drives LiveWIRE Nigeria’s national expansion
LiveWIRE Nigeria has recruited and trained 34 lead trainers to enable the programme to expand nationally. A special two day ‘Train the Trainer’ programme was held for the new trainers, representing 17 training organisations from the states of Rivers, Delta, Lagos and Federal Capital Territory.
Up to now, the LiveWIRE Nigeria programme has only been available within the Niger Delta, however in response to the overwhelming demand from young people outside the region, the decision has been taken to deliver the programme nationally during 2014.
In addition to facilitating the national expansion of the LiveWIRE Nigeria programme, the training enabled the participants to understand and buy into the Shell LiveWIRE v2 approach to enterprise development, including using Shell LiveWIRE’s ‘Value Chain Briefings’ which support young entrepreneurs to align their business model to take up opportunities in the various value chains of Nigeria’s growing economic sectors, namely: agriculture; manufacturing; oil and gas; retail and wholesale; and telecommunications.
