Leading tech company Vatebra Limited has announced the commencement of her first streamlined internship program, this was made known in an event held at the Vatebra Tech Hub in Lagos. The program entitled the Vatebra Internship and Mentorship Program #VIM2022 is designed to develop young and enthusiastic individuals into a unique learning and growth system with Vatebra Limited.

The program which kicked off officially on the 22nd of April 2022 with its first cohort of interns and mentees, comes at a time when the tech ecosystem is rapidly in search of solutions, people and capabilities to diversify the planets pipeline. While useful and ingenious technology professionals are increasingly becoming scarce as the industry generally witnesses a brain drain, it became paramount that upskilling and apprenticeship will go a long way to start building the technology professionals of the future. 

According to the Program Director Mosunmola Adewale-Akobada “The VIM program functions much like apprenticeship, providing hands-on technical training and capstone projects, as well as mentorship. As with the organization the program is both physical and virtual. It is scheduled to last for 10 months”.

The Head of African Markets, at Vatebra Limited, Matthew Omoaka, posit: “This internship gives participants the rare opportunity to acquire skills and experience through short-term work rather than a more traditional training approach. It gives people a chance to develop some really cool experience in a short amount of time and really very specific, very marketable information to put on a resume.

He added, “conferring to the program plan, the interns/mentees require up to 40 hours of work every week for a minimum of 10 months. Working hours are coordinated with the Company supervisor. The interns/mentees must demonstrate high level performance and will be evaluated monthly. At the middle and end of the program the Intern/Mentees will make presentations and reports that will be used as a basis to judge their participation and achievements”. 

Speaking through a live Zoom call, The Deputy Managing Director of Vatebra Limited Mr. Mike Aigbe admonishes the interns ‘that the Interns program is an opportunity which has been provided at no cost to them and for those who wouldn’t necessarily have had it. It will also help the beneficiaries in their career path not only by getting the experience but as a concept of being able to balance that with the right exposure”
