In a bid to bridge the gap between academic knowledge and practical workplace skills, the Work Readiness Program (WRP) has been launched in Uganda. Implemented by Enabel in partnership with the Private Sector Foundation Uganda (PSFU), this program aims to empower young graduates with the necessary tools to excel in the job market.

What is the Work Readiness Program (WRP)?

The Work Readiness Program is designed to enhance the employability and productivity of recent graduates from universities and higher learning institutions in Uganda. It offers participants the opportunity to gain practical work experience and develop essential soft skills through attachments in various sectors including Agro-processing, Construction, ICT, Manufacturing, Tourism, and Hospitality.

How Does the Program Work?

If you are a citizen and resident of Uganda, a recent university graduate with a transcript or proof of processing one, and have completed your studies within the last two years, you are eligible to apply.
