FOCUS AREAS

Employability

We adopt innovation methods to create opportunities that give young Nigerians access to a continuum of programs and services designed to develop their competencies and employment skills so as to ensure that employers have access to a highly skilled and employable workforce.

AGDC is therefore positioned as a “transformational vehicle” for helping individuals become more productive, employable, entrepreneurial and better able to define and pursue appropriate and rewarding career paths both within and outside the corporate environment.

AGDCs’ flagship programs include the Graduate Employability and Work Readiness Credential currently run under the title ‘WINGS (workplace Intelligent Nigerian Graduates Symposium- a re-training & reorientation program that ensures individuals turn up on their first day at work groomed to be value-adding assets to their employers and the High Potential Graduate Program, an intensive development program that impacts core managerial and leadership competences into Nigeria’s prospective workforce.

Entrepreneurship

We understand that at the core of every thriving economy, nation building activities and job creation is enterprise development. This is why we support Nigerian youth to grow innovative and sustainable business through the provision of capacity development and access to funds.
