SEMA’s trainees receive regular soft- and hard skills training that is beneficial to their personal development and any professional career. The programme includes group training, individual assignments, field data collection and mentorship from professional experts in research. At the end of the traineeship, trainees have developed a range of hard research skills, such as interviewing and data-analysis, as well as soft skills such as communication skills, critical thinking, team work, leadership and work ethic. Successful trainees are rewarded with a certificate at the end of the programme to validate their skills for future employment.
SEMA acknowledges the trainees effort to learn and appreciates their hard work by giving them monthly rewards, including announcing the outstanding trainee of the month.This monthly award is based on elements of timeliness, reliability, motivation, data quality and effective communication of the trainees to encourage them in stepping up the game each month in their performance. Outstanding trainees also get an opportunity to take separate learning tracks at the SEMA department of their choice.
SEMA TRAINEE OF THE MONTH NOVEMBER 2020
I thank the SEMA traineeship team and my fellow trainees for working hard to ensure a difference in service delivery. My experience with SEMA has been a rollercoaster of learning new things and meeting new friends like Maili, Kenneth and Shine who have been quite helpful in my learning.
I have learnt alot from SEMA trainings more so those about research and I have learnt valuable lessons like being honest focused and being truthful in every small detail of life in other words not to promise what you cannot fullfil. I can't thank SEMA enough for the wonderful opportunity. I love you all SEMA people, the struggle continues till our goal is achieved.
