On 15 January 2020, Field Ready signed an agreement with YABA College of Technology to be the first licensed Field Ready institution in Nigeria. Teaching on the first Field Ready Nigeria programme will commence in July 2020. The instructors at YABA Tech will lead on programme delivery and will be supported by the staff of Field Ready Nigeria and the Alliance of companies who believe in, and fund, Field Ready in Nigeria.

The Chair of Field Ready Nigeria, Alex Illah said:

“We are absolutely delighted to have formalised our partnership with one of the best technical colleges in Nigeria. YABA Tech are a brilliant partner for Field Ready in Nigeria – they have great management, brilliant teachers, world class facilities and, more than that, a positive attitude to empowering their students. Our team here in Nigeria are excited by what lies ahead.”

Field Ready is an intensive employability programme that prepares people with the skills needed to work in industry. Field Ready students complete a highly practical technical programme, as well as developing their applied personal skills and HSE awareness. During the programme, students will also have the opportunity to engage with industry through worksite visits, workshops and job placement activities. Field Ready graduates are then prepared for the job market and have the right knowledge, skills and behaviours to thrive in their chosen career.

Field Ready currently runs programmes in Mozambique and Ghana. Getenergy Field Ready Ltd. is a limited company registered in the UK.
