Cavendish University Uganda (CUU) held its first Employability forum on 31st October, 2019 at the Kampala Serena Hotel. The event was graced by Mr. Richard Byarugaba, the Managing Director of NSSF (National Social Security Fund) who led a powerful dialogue about the topic: "Amendments to NSSF Act: unpacking the numbers; implications and options for employees."
The discussants included former Deputy Premier of Buganda Kingdom, Mr. Apollo Makubuya and Ms. Munnu Martha Omer, the Director, Human Resources, Coca Cola.
The Forum attracted Human Resource Directors from over 20 Organisations who participated in the discussions and also advised on the kind of short courses and training they would wish for employees in their Organisations.
The subsequent employability forum events will be aimed at bringing CUU closer to the industry and private sector with benefits of increasing Industry participation in student training & Curriculum development, Internships and Employability for CUU students. Cavendish University will also get the opportunity to run short courses for industry.
