The Student Employment Programme (SEP) is one of the innovative programmes in KWASU’s training and equality package. It is established to The Student Employment Programme (SEP)introduce students to the world of work by combining academic studies with on-the-job experience and through this, to explore possible career directions before graduation. It is envisaged that the Programme would help to inculcate into our students the entrepreneurial and community service spirit given that the University is the University for Community development. The strategic objective is to develop innovative ways to ensure a win –win process whereby KWASU benefits, the students benefit, and the community also benefits.
Strategy Adopted for the employment of student workers
When the VC approved the recommendations of the Committee he assigned it to the Office of Advancement and Development (OAD) to liaise with CIIS Director, the Bursar, and the DSA to work out the implementation details, including specific modalities formats and processes for SEP implementation.

In line with the overall vision and objectives of SEP, objective criteria were established to achieve the triple criteria of merit, incentive and service. To qualify for SEP students must meet minimum cut-off of not below the 200 level and a CGPA of 3.00. In addition, interested students are required to fill the SEP application form, write an application letter and submit a resume. Shortlisted candidates are then required to attend an interview.

Trailblazers
A total of 41 application forms were picked up of which 15 were duly returned as the qualifying CGPA of 3.0 and above disqualified many of them. Subsequently, interviews were conducted for qualified applicants out of whom 9 were found satisfactory and suitable for the post applied for. The interview was akin to an interactive session between the students, and their would-be supervisors.
