The Entrepreneurship Centre in collaboration with a Port Harcourt-based business outlet, Trans-Consulting, has ended a four-week training programme for National Youth Service Corps Members serving in Obio/Akpor, Port Harcourt City and Emohua Local Government Areas of Rivers State. The one-day training programme took place on Thursday, September 8, 2016.
Declaring open the training session for the first batch of Corps Members which held in the Auditorium of the Entrepreneurship Centre at the University Park, representative of the Vice-Chancellor and Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences, Professor OkeyOnuchuku, stressed the need for the participants to acquire specific skills that would enable them set up their own businesses, while awaiting paid employment after their service year. 
“You are here to make a breakthrough in entrepreneurship in line with the new expectation of society that you should strive to earn a livelihood to support yourself and your families. As things stand today, you do not need anybody to tell you that unemployment has become a major problem in our country which is reeling under the worst type of economic recession in decades. This period requires creative thinking and innovative application of entrepreneurial skills to compliment what you studied in the university. In this season of recession, only those who can adapt to the harsh economic environment will survive it, while those who may choose to continue waiting for paid employment would have to do so for a very long time with all the attendant frustration,” he told them. 


Professor Onuchuku advised the Corps Members to benefit maximally from the training provided by the Entrepreneurship Centre and utilize the skills they acquired to boost their personal circumstances, including improving the country’s GDP.
Commending Trans-Consult for the partnership with the Entrepreneurship Centre to impact young people positively, the Deputy Vice-Chancellor in charge of Academic matters, Professor Hakeem Fawehinmi, described the training programme as a shining example of that critical symbiotic relationship between town and gown in a mutually beneficial manner, urging the participants to make good use of the opportunity to better their lot.
 “This training programme would provide you an opportunity to think out of the box and create something that would distinguish you from your colleagues who are still dreaming of securing paid employment on passing out of the NYSC programme. Acquiring requisite hands-on skills can change you from mere job seekers to employers of labour within a very short time,” Professor Fawehinmi admonished the participating Corps Members, commending the Acting Director for repositioning the Entrepreneurship Centre to achieve its mandate.
Earlier in his welcome address, Acting Director of the Centre, Dr. Williams Olori, listed the gains of the training programme for the Corps Members, noting that limitless opportunities abounded for wealth creation in other sub-sectors of the economy such as agriculture, horticulture and fish farming, amongst others.
Explaining that the resource persons and the trainings were selected to equip the Corps Members with expertise and skills in the selected areas of training, the Acting Director noted that certificates would be issued to participants at the end of the training programme as added incentive for them to practicalise what they have learned.
In their separate addresses, Managing Director of Trans-Consulting, Leo Okereke and Zonal Inspector of the NYSC for Emohua Local Government Area, Paul Amoba, commended the partnership between the University and Trans-Consult to train Corps Members to become self-reliant on their passing out of the programme. Stressing that the skills acquisition scheme was introduced by the NYSC to curb unemployment in the country, the duo noted that UniPort had a lot to offer prospective clients as an Entrepreneurial University.
The training programmes covered Cosmetics and Makeup, Catering, Bread making and Cosmetology, Close Circuit Television (CCTV) Installation and Maintenance, Fashion Design, Events Management and Computer Repair, amongst other skills taught the participants.

Academic Programmes

The development of the curriculum of the Academy was guided by the need to entrench a culture of academic excellence, to remain globally competitive, and produce A-Level certificate holders who will adequately fit into the emerging trends in world-class universities and serve as worthy ambassadors and mirrors of the Academy to the outside world. In line with this global benchmark, the Academy offers the following programmes:

  1. Accelerated 1-year A-Level programme
  2. Regular 2-year A-Level programme (to be introduced later)
  3. 1-year JUPEB Direct Entry programme

 

  • Accelerated One Year Advanced Subsidiary (AS)/IGCSE Level Programme

This programme is designed for students who prove, during their admission test, that they have the capacity to pass the GCE A-Level examination in one academic session. Such students are given accelerated preparation for the Cambridge GCE A/Level examination within one year.

  • Cambridge Traditional Two-Year A-LProgramme

The two-year traditional A-Level Programme is designed for students who, after being examined during their period of intake, we cannot guarantee their success in the GCE A-Level examination in one academic session. This is the regular A-Level programme traditionally administered by Cambridge for direct entry to high profile universities all over the world.

 

  • Joint Universities Preliminary Examinations Board (JUPEB)

The Joint Universities Preliminary Examinations Board (JUPEB) is the body responsible for examining students for Direct Entry admissions to Nigerian Universities. The University of Port Harcourt is a founding member of JUPEB and has contributed tremendously to the development of the curriculum of the Board. The University offers the platform of Ashgrove Academy for students who may wish to gain Direct Entry to its programmes or programmes of other Nigerian Universities through JUPEB-administered entrance examinations. The programme is designed to last for one academic session, after which, successful students may gain admission by filling the Direct Entry JAMB form which leads to admission into 200 Level of the University of Port Harcourt or any other JUPEB-affiliated university of their choice.

 

Structure

The Academy is managed by the University through the Management of the College of Continuing Education (CCE). The Governing Board of the CCE oversees the affairs of the Academy. Its day to day affairs are handled by the Director of Studies. All members of staff work assiduously towards rendering world-class services to the students and other stakeholders of the Academy.

 

Human and Material Resources

At Ashgrove Academy, “Excellence” is our watchword. Our human and material resources also depict the spirit of excellence, which permeates all that we do at the Academy. Our subject teachers,as a rule, possess a minimum of Second Class Honours (Upper Division) and Master’s degrees in their teaching fields.This is to ensure that success of our valued students is guaranteed. In the same way, our administrative staff cadre is carefully selected, bearing in mind the special services they are to render to the students and the intensive nature of the A-Level programme. Every member of staff of the Academy is dedicated to rendering excellent services to the students and all other stakeholders.

 

The buildings within the Academy complex are specially constructed to meet global standards and offer requisite comfort to both students and staff. Apart from being fully air-conditioned, the Administrative/Academic Block and the Hostel Block are fully furnished with state-of-the-art equipment and safety gadgets. There is a provision for Dining Hall within the premises of the school. This also helps to ensure that students’ attention will be fully concentrated on their studies.

 

Security

The security of our teachers and students is paramount to us, hence, the location of the Academy within the University permanent site with adequate security presence. To add to the security needs of the Academy, the complex is further protected with perimeter fences with adequate lightings all around the fence. For better security service delivery, the Academy is guarded by a private security company recruited exclusively for the security of the complex round the clock. In addition to the private security company, men of the Nigerian Police Force, Choba Division are also on constant patrol every night around the Academy complex to augment the efforts of the private security company.

 

Recreation

Students are encouraged to engage in recreational activities at the stipulated periods to boost their performance levels. The Academy has provided sporting facilities for football, basketball, handball, table tennis, chess, scrabble, and badminton. Once in a while, students who may wish to engage in other games like track and field, swimming, tennis, fitness, and martial arts games are escorted to the University Sports Institute, where the facilities are available.

Our students are also encouraged to participate in competitions within and outside the University when the need arises.

 

Morals

The University has two outstanding church buildings, one for Catholic faithful, and the other for Protestants. There is also a mosque within the University Park for Muslim students. Our students’ faiths are identified on admission and arrangements are made for them to attend religious programmes according to the time of worship at the respective places of worship.

In addition to these arrangements, devotion periods are observed in the Hostel Block every morning and every evening to boost the moral values of the students. They are also taught to respect one another’s religious views and co-exist harmoniously within the complex.

 

Transportation

At resumption, parents bring their children to the Academy or aid the students to return on their own. Once students return to the Academy, their movement is restricted within the Academy. If there is any need to leave the Academy (for academic or sports assignments), the concerned students are conveyed to their destination with the school bus in company of a member of staff.
