How To Fill Your Siwes Log Book.(Hint For Nigerian Industrial Training Students)

What is SIWES?
SIWES stands for Students Industrial Work Experience Scheme, it is a skill training programme that is designed to expose and also prepare students in the Universities, Polytechnics, Colleges of Technology/Colleges of Agriculture and Colleges of Education for the industrial work situation they may likely meet after graduation. In Nigeria, it is usually designed in a way to fit into the curriculum of students mostly in 300Level or 400Level, also it carries a high credit unit that can easily boost ones GP if one actually one gets a grade “A”  in it.
The Scheme aims at exposing students to industry based skills necessary for a smooth transition from the classroom to the work field. It affords students of tertiary institutions the opportunity to familiarize and be exposed to the needed experience in becoming a successful entrepreneur which usually are not available in the educational institutions. Participation in Industrial Training is a good educational strategy. Classroom studies are integrated with learning through hands-on work experience in a field related to the student’s academic and career goals. Successful internships brings up an experiential learning process that not only promotes career but also provides opportunities for learners to develop skills necessary to become leaders in their chosen professions.

What is the SIWES Log Book?

The log book is a booklet that a student must be in possession of, so as to record the daily work and experience garnered. The Log book contains some basic data about the student, and also the organization where the student is attached to. However, students on industrial training at one point or another encounter difficulties in filling the accurate data required into the Log book, I believe this post will go a long way in guiding you on how to fill your log book.

Below are pictures and explanation that clearly shows how to fill the Log book.

NOTE: – The Log book is not the same in all the institutions, but they all serve to achieve one purpose.

Industrial Training Assessment Sheet

This page contains the period (i.e. the time from and to the time the industrial training programme is meant to end), the name of the student, department(s) in which the student was during the training programme, the name of the company attached to, the type of business the company does, then finally the performance rating which is meant to be completed by your instructor at your company (i.e. the person attached to you).

Record of Activities
Description of Work Done 

This is the main body of the Log book, where the student record the daily experience gained as he or she carries out the training programme. This is done by writing a brief summary of what you did on that particular day in the space provided, and also attach the date of that day as well. 

Drawing Page
Technical Notes/ Drawings
This is an area to add illustration (i.e. diagrams), I will advise you to draw diagrams if any with pencils and also try your possible best to make it neat. At times there might not be diagrams to draw, in the diagram provided space one can still add write-ups (summary of work done during the week).
Finally, below it is a section for your signature and date of that week, and also a comment section for your instructor, his or her signature, and date.
I hope this is of help to you. If you have any comment  you are  free to push them forward.
Have a wonderful SIWES Training.
