From Mid-June to the end of September 2022, the Centre of Practical Skills (CoPS) successfully rolled-out out its Training of Trainers (ToT) in Plumbing, Masonry and Electrical Installation.

International experts were engaged to train, mentor and support the Nigerian experts in their respective job profiles.

In total, fourteen (14) Nigerian experts gained new skills and knowledge to provide training to the Centre of Practical Skills trainees in Enugu. CoPS aims to encourage foreign direct investment toward creating jobs and training opportunities for returnees and Nigerian youth with a focus on gender equality in terms of promoting female trainees. As such, the programme tackles some of the root causes of irregular migration and allows for successful reintegration.

Centre of Practical Skills is committed to continuing its work to provide quality practical vocational training and development for highly qualified craft entrepreneurs and returnees in Nigeria.

CoPS is implemented by the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD) and funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) via the project “Skills Development for Youth Employment” which is implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, and co-funded by the Austrian Development Agency (ADA).
