The Workmanship and Technical Training Centre (WTTC) Bori, will drive skills acquisition for young Rivers State men and women in some critical areas such as fabrication, pipe fitting, welding, carpentry, masonry, tiling, catering, etc. The courses would be accredited by the City and Guild of London, United Kingdom.
RSSDA has already entered into partnership with the Highbury College, Portsmouth, United Kingdom, to provide a model for learning and training at the Centre, as well as operate a programme for staff exchange between the Centre and Highbury. The Agency is also working with the Bonny Vocational Centre (BVC) to support curriculum development, staff recruitment and help with accreditation of WTTC programmes in Nigeria.
