College Trains, Empowers Personnel In Healthcare Careers, Graduates 50 Students

The Head of Health School, CLI College, Opebi, Lagos campus, Mrs Angela Chizea, has stressed the importance and crucial role of education in shaping the future of the people, and in enhancing national development and growth..

The CLI College, is a leading private Career College in Nigeria, offers diploma and certificate programmes designed to prepare students for success in healthcare, business, technology and creative skills.

She disclosed this during the graduation of a cohort of 50 graduates of the college, which specialises and trains personnel in healthcare, business, technology, and creative programmes, with the award of Certificate and Diploma for Healthcare Assistants, and Mental Health & Addiction Counsellors.

According to her, the college, which focused on practical skills and flexible learning options, trains and empowers the students to launch new careers or advance in their fields.

The cohort of 50 graduates, Chizea said, joined the alumni network of over 1,000 healthcare professionals, who had been trained and graduated from the college since its inception in 2020.

The CLI College, a member of the International Association of Private Career Colleges (IAPCC), she further noted has achieved an impressive track record of its graduates working in various healthcare organisations in Nigeria, the United Kingdom, Canada and Dubai, among others.

Meanwhile, in her keynote address, the Executive Director and Board Member, MTN Foundation, Odunayo Sanya, reiterated the importance of a strong healthcare system for a thriving economy, even as she underscored the crucial role of the private sector, encompassing not only corporations, but also individuals and institutions in bridging the skills gap within the Nigerian healthcare industry.

Sanya added: “The private sector is not just about companies and tuition fees. It is about organisations, institutions, and everyone coming together to make a difference in their communities. “When people are well, they can thrive. A healthy workforce is essential for any economy.

When there are issues with healthcare access, it erodes the talent pipeline, hindering a nation or organisation’s economic growth.” Her address, which was said to have resonated with the graduating class, underlines the importance of collective action in building a stronger healthcare system for Nigeria.

However, Chizea, who lauded the college staff and supportive families who played a role in the graduates’ journey, stated: “We acknowledge the critical role played by our staff, whose tireless efforts and unwavering commitment have helped shape your journey.

And, indeed to the families and loved ones who have supported our graduates every step of the way, we extend our heartfelt gratitude.”

While congratulating the graduating students, she praised them for their unwavering commitment and hard work, which accounted for the successful completion of their training and achievements.

The college, which is dedicated to equipping Nigerians with the skills and knowledge needed to address the critical need for qualified healthcare professionals, however, announced the launching of new health care programmes, including Health Office Administration, Developmental Support Worker and Pharmacy Assistant programmes to further enhance healthcare professionals’ knowledge and skills.
