A project launched by Tigo Ghana highlights an increasingly widespread trend: the world of telecommunications is opening to young university students. An experience similar to one that VueTel Italia is pushing forward in Italy with “Campus TLC”, in cooperation with “La Sapienza” University of Rome.
Training and guidance in the world of TLC
Tigo Ghana, one of the main telephone operators in the African country, has launched a new professional training and guidance project for young university students. The company will give the opportunity to 30 young people selected to do a three-month internship within its establishment. This will help young people to gain “first hand experience” of the daily activity of a business operating in the telecommunications industry, and a chance to learn about the industry and enhance their theoretical knowledge with solid practical skills.
“The initiative is designed to give students the opportunity to explore the world of work”, explained Elizabeth Arhin, Human Resources Manager at Tigo Ghana, “and the programme is structured on the basis of their interests”. The idea was met with enthusiasm and over 300 young people have applied to participate.
Campus TLC: VueTel Italia’s commitment to young people
A similar project to that of Tigo Ghana was also launched in recent months by VueTel Italia. It’s called the Campus TLC and also involves the cooperation of the Faculty of Economy of “La Sapienza” University of Rome, one of Italy’s most important universities. The students were offered a training and educational day dedicated to the world of telecommunications. The participants in the event were also given the opportunity to apply for a work placement in the company that will start in the coming months.
This is confirmation of VueTel Italia’s decision to focus on the young professionals of the future, pursuing its policy of promoting talent through structured and professional training programmes.
