ISLAMABAD, September 25, 2010: Two hundred students attended a graduation ceremony on Saturday that marked their completion of a US funded “employability” skills training program.
The students were part of a group that is participating in a vocational training program funded by a U.S agency in partnership with Sarhad University. The aim of the program is to facilitate unemployed young people and women from rural areas like North Waziristan.
The “employability” skills training includes instructions in defining career objectives, interview and resume writing techniques, basic interpersonal skills and information technology orientation.
“It is indeed a privilege to be associated with this program in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, which has undergone severe hardships in the last few years” Sarhad University vice chancellor Salim-Ur-Rehman said.
He further said that Sarhad University is only nine years old but has moved ahead nine-fold through this program. “We are confident that we will take this vision forward to the benefit of the youth in Pakistan and its economy” he added.
