IHRDC recently delivered two major virtual learning programs for the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) a two-week program for 400 Management Graduate Trainees and an eight-week program for 650 Technical Graduate Trainees.
The need was stated by Fatima Suraj Yakubu, NNPC’s General Manager Talent, “We have 1,050 recent graduates, isolated at home because of Covid.19, who need to develop strong backgrounds in job-related oil and gas industry topics. We asked IHRDC, with its broad learning resources and strong background in virtual learning, to join us in the challenge and, together, we satisfied every aspect of our needs and translated NNPC’s vision for Young Graduate Development to reality.”
All 1,050 attended the first two-week program together. It was devoted to the commercial and technical fundamentals of the oil and gas value chain, both upstream and downstream, and an NNPC-selected set of soft skills.
Blended forms of learning were used to maintain a high level of interest during the six-hour daily sessions. They included lectures and discussion sessions by experienced specialists, team-based assignments in the Sandland Petroleum Simulation and the development of a Petroleum Industry Board Game for Nigeria. All content was delivered through the IHRDC Learning Portal.
The IHRDC team of faculty and mentors presented the content along with NNPC HR and IT specialists who maintained flawless communications with all Trainees using Microsoft Teams collaboration platform for individual and the team sessions. The 105 teams were divided into five groups each with their own dedicated mentors to answer questions and support the teams as they analyzed and solved their Petroleum Project Simulation and Board Game assignments.
