Sterling Bank Plc has announced its support for iCreateAfrica Skill Fest, Africa’s biggest vocational skills event.

The lender will be supporting the firm in hosting the first youth empowerment festival at the A-Class Park, Abuja as part of an effort to deepen the process of skills acquisition and economic inclusion of young Africans across the continent.

The skills festival is scheduled to hold on October 26th – 27th, 2018 and aims to create an environment that encourages the phenomenal display of talents and skills by bringing the excitement and energy of a young emerging workforce alongside proactive organisations who understand that engaging the youth is the best strategy for addressing labour challenges on the continent.

Speaking on empowerment skills festival, Executive Director, Corporate and Investment Banking at Sterling Bank, Yemi Odubiyi, said: “Unlike any other vocational-based event, the iCreateAfrica Skills Fest will include a conference, exhibition and skills competition. The skills competition would see the most talented technicians, artisans and innovators from more than 50 universities, polytechnics and vocational training centres in the country, showcasing their skills and competing for funding opportunities as well as exclusive internship programmes.”
