The Acting Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Wole Banjo has charged Students going for the 2021/2022 Students Industrial Work Experience Scheme ( SIWES ), on the need to be of good behaviour and be highly focused as they proceed on the programme.
The Acting Vice-Chancellor gave the charge at the 2021/2022 SIWES Orientation programme for Students which took place recently at the OGD Hall, Ijagun main Campus. The Acting Vice-Chancellor who was represented at the event by the Dean, College of Vocational and Technology Education (COVTED), Prof B.J.O. Ayorinde implored the students to avoid things that would cause the University embarrassment but to always be of good behaviour.
“SIWES is an annual exercise that would take you out of the shores of the University to places where you practice all you have been taught. It is therefore expected that you are of good behaviour “, Prof. Banjo added.
“Show yourself that you’re a good product of TASUED, avoid every form of misbehaviour, be honest and pay attention to what you’ve gone there to learn”, he further added.
In his welcome address, the co-ordinator of SIWES, Dr Lateef Akintayo, implored Students to avail themselves of the opportunities of the programme to get informed about SIWES.
He, therefore, urged the students to take the programme seriously and give it their very best as some students see the period of SIWES as holiday me when they can take me of School thus it is easy to pass or fail SIWES which he noted is a six-unit course.
Delivering the first lecture on What SIWES is all about, the Team Leader, Industrial Training Fund,(ITF), Mrs Adenike Dipo-Ojo noted that the programme is also to acquire industrial work experience, noting that some work tools such as industrial machines may not be available in Schools.
“SIWES is to bring work studied into practice. It helps prepare students for work experience in the future and also to provide students with the opportunity to bridge between theory and practical”, she noted.
Mrs Dipo-Ojo further noted that everyone has a role to play in the programme but emphasised that Students should give the programme their very best.
Other resource persons at the event were SIWES Officer, Mr Yusuf Ibrahim; Training and Development Officer, Mrs. Cynthia Otuwari PO; ITF Corp Member, Miss Bukola Afolabi; SIWES Coordinator, Transport and Planning Management Department, Mr Komolafe B.O represented by Mr Essang Emmanuel.
