Last week, it was time to introduce the current core course students at the Potentiam Youth Development Centre to the newly implemented Job Placement Programme. To start off, Gary Agaba, the Youth Centre’s Personal Development Facilitator, gave an introductory speech about the idea behind the initiative, the requirements to participate and the expected outcomes. Thereafter, the Fontes team held individual interviews with the participants.
This approach supports our vision in two ways. First, it allows us to understand the personal strengths and goals of each of the students, facilitating the search for suitable employers and partners. Furthermore, the interviews are part of an encompassing monitoring system.
By constantly evaluating the satisfaction and performance of placed students and their employers, we receive crucial insights for our customer relationship management and impact measurement systems. These findings will thus help us improve our curriculum and strengthen partnerships with employers.
