Thus, with this purpose, writes Angop, a memorandum of understanding was initialed between the Angolan Association of Petroleum and Gas (AECIPA) and the Higher Polytechnic Institute of Technology and Sciences (ISPTC).
As part of the program – promoted by AECIPA, a partner of The Bridge Global, and with the support of the Ministry of Mineral Resources, Oil and Gas and Sonangol –, the oil companies will host at least two interns for a internship lasting between 12 and 18 months, through registration, which requires a completed and certified degree, writes Angop.
Regarding the choice method, advances Angop, this will be in charge of The Bridge Global's Professional Training Centre, which will previously prepare the candidates, in order to guarantee orientation towards the business environment.
Indicating that the program intends to be a complement to the Executive's strategies to introduce young people into the professional world, Braulio de Brito, president of AECIPA, also highlighted the relevance of the initiative in collaborating with the economic and social evolution of the country, through the generation of opportunities and professional development of youth, writes Angop.
The official, quoted by Angop, made it known that an attempt will be made to include, initially, the 150 companies in the said sector to welcome at least two candidates each, which, after all, will make it possible to insert around 300 trainees.
"We think that in two years we will already have the complete process, because there will be the selection of candidates and the organization of the process", he added.
Regarding the funds provided for the execution of the programme, the official made it known that this will have a competitive charge, where companies will not have to substantiate the costs, writes Angop. That is, AECIP will take care of the logistical, monetary, food and transport aspects, he explained, adding that the candidates will receive a value per month during the internship. "Young people will be supported with a monthly amount during the internship phase," he said, quoted by Angop.
Leonor Sá Machado, president of The Bridge Global, made it known that registrations must be carried out online or in sessions promoted at universities, among others.
After enrolling, Angop said, candidates will receive, over the course of a week, behavioral training with an eliminatory nature, as they want to choose candidates who are admissible for the positions requested.
According to Angop, at the end of the internship, the interns with skills will be able to join the staff of the companies that are available.
The initiative was also applauded by Diamantino Azevedo, Minister of Mineral Resources, Oil and Gas, who classified the project as rewarding as it will help to facilitate the introduction of young people into the world of work.
