SPECIAL AND DERIVATIVE PROGRAMMES

Background

Traditionally, the FITC training programmes are either open or in-plant in nature, but due to institutional growth, brand enhancement, increased visibility and consequent expansion in business activities within and outside Nigeria over the years, FITC started collaborating with interested institutions of like minds in organising programmes that are neither open nor in-plant. This necessitated the creation of the Special and Derivative Programmes Unit (SDPU) in 2010. 

Functions of SDPU

The Unit, which is under the FITC Training, is charged with the responsibility of:

  1. Designing special off-calendar programmes, which could be organised by FITC anytime within the year;
  2. Developing collaborative businesses that are congruous with FITC mandate;
  3. Facilitating the FITC Training’s partnering deals and processes; and
  4. Coordinating the implementation of approved collaborative programmes.

Apart from its involvement in short term project-specific partnership relationships, FITC Training is also favourably disposed to strategic or long term relationships as long as the partnership complements the mandate and objectives of FITC, delivers best value for both parties and the partnering institution is credible, with values that align with FITC’s core values.

Goals of Partnerships

Any partnership relationship of FITC via the Special and Derivative Programme Unit (SDPU) would be expected to accomplish the following broad objectives:  

  1. Build capacity in the industry
  2. Add better value to clients
  3. Increase customer satisfaction
  4. Share knowledge, skills, competencies, responsibilities, accountability and risks
  5. Champion effectiveness, efficiency, innovation and professionalism
  6. Protect intellectual property ownership
  7. Achieve greater reach
  8. Support national development

Partnering Process

The initiative to partner may originate from FITC or from an external potential partner within and outside the country. We are committed to giving every submitted expression of interest a prompt response, as we provide honest and constructive feedback that may or may not lead to further negotiation. Essentially, our step-by-step process in considering partnership requests is summarised as follows:

  • Step 1- Initial desk review of request
  • Step 2- In-depth appraisal of submission to determine merit, business case etc.
  • Step 3- Scoping and conceptualisation meeting with the potential partner
  • Step 4- Due diligence on the partner
  • Step 5- Detailed negotiation meeting with the partner
  • Step 6- Finalisation of agreeable MoU and Non-Disclosure Non-Circumvention Agreement
  • Step 7- Agreement closure/Sign-off
  • Step 8- Programme implementation/Partnership management

The FITC SPDU only endorses partnerships that are deemed to have been open and transparent throughout the process. In all its special programme partnerships, FITC is reputed for responsiveness, honesty, transparency and flexibility. In partnering with others to succeed, it leverages its strong brand, a pedigree of world class services delivery and a large stock of multidisciplinary, versatile professionals to maximise value adds to all parties.
