In a recent announcement, Mobile Telecommunications Limited disclosed its intentions to expand its national internship programme to be absorbed into national education.
The MTC Namibia National Internship Programme marked a new dawn for stakeholders, among them interns, institutions of higher learning, and host organisations.
We are now ready to upscale the project to become a national vehicle for internships. MTC and the Office of the Prime Minister will collectively contribute N$2 million per annum. So, we are looking for other corporates out there to come on board with a contribution of at least N$200 000.
Let us assist these students together so that we better prepare a certified and skilled workforce. We need to do our part in writing this chapter so that the history books of the internship will have something revolutionary to say about us.Tim Ekandjo, Executive, MTC
We are now at a point where we want to carve out a future for the programme, with the aim to see how it can be integrated into the national education goals and structure. Frankly speaking, we have, per annum, more students who need internships, but unfortunately, the programme can only take in 160 per year
We, are, therefore, really urging and calling on more corporates to come on board so that together, as good corporate citizens, can, make a positive difference in this regard.Licky Erastus, Managing Director, MTC
