 The Badili Vocational Community College is confident most of the 185 students who graduated with life skills yesterday will find employment.

All received certificates in seven courses from a concept adopted from India.

“Eighty per cent of graduates are employed in industries, another five per cent go for further studies, while 15 per cent are self-employed,” college manager, Gordan Awatan said.

“Whatever you learn here, go out and make it work,” he said.

Awatan thanked industries for allowing students on-the-job training.

Acting deputy secretary (TVET) Unesco Godffery Yerua said there was a demand for skilled people in the work place and many people misunderstood why people attended technical vocational schools.

“Life skills offered to graduates are very challenging and essential,” he said.
