New directive for Interns at government offices

Directive offers limelight to interns

Deputy President William Ruto during the launch of the NYC Strategic Plan

The National Youth Council (NYC) on Monday announced that interns at state agencies would be considered for government jobs after completing their internship.

NYC Chairman Fatuma Abubakar, who spoke during the handing over ceremony to the chief executive, Roy Sasaska stated that the council had been in talks with National Employment Authority (NEA) over the directive.

“The issue of young people being told that they need three years' experience before being promoted will be a thing of the past,” remarked Abubakar.

Sasaka replaced the council’s first CEO Raymond Ochieng.

Abubakar further stated that internship is set to be considered as part of someone’s job experience and it will be the only thing required for one to qualify for certain positions as reported by a local daily.

New plan for graduates

In September last year, NEA presented a plan to the Cabinet for approval that would ensure placement of graduates in internship positions.

Winnie Pertet, who is the NEA Chairman, explained that if the plan was given a go ahead, internship programmes would be recognized across the public and private sector.

Pertet had pointed out that the period would help the graduates sharpen the skills they acquired in university as they prepared to step into the employment or business world.

The graduate internship programme, or paid apprenticeships, had indicated that all graduates from universities and technical institutes would be absorbed by government and the private sector for a period of 12 to 18 months.
