University of Ghana Students’ Representative Council (UG-SRC) to host Skill-Up for Jobs Bootcamp 2022

Published

on

SRC pres3

The UG-SRC under the 2021-2022 leadership in collaboration with Global Entrepreneurship Network-Ghana (GEN-Ghana) will organise the maiden, UG-SRC Skill-UP for Jobs Bootcamp which is slated for mid-July – August 2022.

The UG-SRC Skill-UP for Jobs Bootcamp project is an experiential training and exposure programme that has been designed to train, inspire, and equip 1000 students with job creation skills. It is intended to be a weekend training programme over a one-month duration comprising in-person practical skills sessions that will focus on sequential employability skills in selected disciplines.

The participants will be coached to apply and showcase the acquired skill in micro-projects at the end of the training as a prototype on proof of concepts. Experts from industry have been poached to mentor the participants on their microprojects. The bootcamp training programme will be climaxed with a Skills for Job Summit, where students will have the opportunity to ask questions from industry experts on the skills needed for emerging jobs of the future. This will motivate students to appreciate skills training at first hand.

The goals of this student-initiated project include to:

  • Bridge the entrepreneurial skills gap of students
  • Respond to the changing employment situation by encouraging initiative
  • Create an enterprise culture and stimulate entrepreneurial activity
  • Increase the rate at which students participate in experiential learning
  • Provide insights and connections for students to be part of mentoring networks

Features:

  • The programme will feature practical masterclass Skills training
  • Skills for Jobs Summit and Expo event.
  • Affirmative action for gender and persons with special needs will be considered

Four Key Practical Skills Training Clusters which advance the targets of the UN agenda 2030 (SDGs) have been selected. These include Creative Arts, Food Business and Agribusiness, Digital and Tech Skills and Micro Manufacturing.

Young people continue to be the hardest hit by the job crisis. There are multiple and complex causes behind youth unemployability. Young people often have little or no labour market experience, and frequently lack relevant skills. The challenge of quality and relevance of the skill acquired in formal education can be harnessed by the UG-SRC through the Skill-UP Bootcamp as an added specialised experiential learning during the students stay on UG campus. Of the two routes for the youth to enter employment, the labour-market training is being adopted due to its mass accessibility and cost effectiveness than work experience programmes at workplaces,” says Prince Asumadu, President UG-SRC 2021-2022.

“GEN-Ghana is very thrilled and delighted to be working with UG SRC 2021-22 leadership to implement this project at the University of Ghana.  We call on corporate organisations, development agencies, public sector institutions and the UG community to support this project

The Expected Outcomes include:

  • Participants will be exposed to job creation opportunities
  • Participants will create new business & new markets
  • 1000 students will be directly trained and equipped with job skills
  • Contribute to the Ghana’s achievements of the UN Sustainable Development Goals
  • Provide students with life-long skills and experiences to thrive economically whilst helping Ghana to prosper
  • Interactions with mentors will influence student perspectives on the possibilities open to them after graduation
  • Participants will appreciate work and its function in the economy

“Participants will develop work habits and attitudes necessary for job success,” says Stephen Gyasi-Kwaw, Country Founder/ MD (GEN-Ghana)

Everything you need to know about Delta 8 Pre-rolls

Published

on

2

Delta 8 is getting in popular among cannabis producers, especially with edibles and, more specifically, Gummies. Delta 8 items are more and more being added to customers’ shopping carts due to new flavors being developed and more concentrated versions being created. Before we get to the top (and the top of our customers’) brands, it’s crucial to learn more regarding Delta 8 products in general.

What is Delta 8?

Delta 8 THC can be a natural substance found in hemp in very small amounts but is converted in the lab with CBD in greater quantities for use in various products. Due to the fact that Delta 8 is derived from hemp chemicals, it is legal in our federal government. Federal law bans products that have over 0.3 percent Delta 9 THC but there is no restriction on Delta 8.

The most popular type of THC cannabinoid in marijuana is beta 9, also known as delta 9. That’s why marijuana is known to have health benefits as well as a powerful psychoactive effect, but also with adverse effects such as anxiety, and paranoia. CBD is well-known for its renowned reputation of offering health benefits (sleep issues, anxiety, general well-being, body pain) which you can take pleasure in without the mental jitters or the high from THC.

Delta 8 has pros and cons, what are they?

It has garnered a dedicated audience due to the fact that it gives a psychoactive high, but also has health benefits. It is possible to eliminate certain negative side effects by using Delta 9 (paranoia and anxiety). While Delta 9 does not produce as much intoxication as Delta 9 (less intoxication), it is equally potent.

However, it’s distinct. It may bring euphoric physical relaxation, as well as mental peace to your mind. You can learn more about Delta 8 THC in our full blog on its benefits.

The advantages of the use of DELTA 8

The utilization of Delta 8, in general, is a fantastic way to reap the advantages of THC in addition to an intense high in psychoactive levels without the unpleasant negative consequences like anxiety or anxiety. Certain benefits include the ability to relax, stimulate your appetite, and anxiety-reducing anti-inflammatory effects that keep your mind in a state of calm. It’s high but without blurred vision.

Delta 8 Pre-rolls

Infused with delta-8, delta-8 pre-rolls are made from hemp flower infused with delta-8 (CBD or CBG flower). The most sought-after pre-rolls consist of pre-rolled cigarettes.

What are the purposes that Delta 8 pre-rolls do?

Delta 8 THC creates the same euphoric effects but is not as strong as Delta 9. Delta 8 prerolls. The one you prefer the most will provide the same benefits as our most loved ones, but they’re completely different! The most frequent outcomes are happiness as well as joy and relief from physical pain.

Conclusion

Delta-8 pre-rolls are a great way to experience the pleasure of the Delta-8 flower, without the need to make the flower roll by yourself. They are particularly beneficial to those just beginning to discover cannabis and don’t have experience in rolling smokeable items, however, everyone can benefit from the ease of pre-rolls.
