* Diploma Course (Intensive) in Cultural Administration - 12months
* Post Graduate Diploma in Cultural Administration - 12 months
The Facilitators for programmes include academic staff under the employment of NICO, experienced lecturers and consultants drawn from Nigerian Universities, as well as experts from the culture sector and other reputable Training Institutes. They will, from time to time, be supported by Guest Lecturers and art practitioners in the public sector.
At the end of twelve (12) months, participants for the programmes would be awarded Diploma and Postgraduate Dilpoma in Cultural Administration, respectively.
For now, most of the training programmes of the Institute are co-ordinated at the Liaison Office in Lagos at the NICO Complex located at the National Theatre Annex, Iganmu, Lagos. The NICO Complex has three (3) moderately sized lecture halls, a well-equipped library, Internet facility, as well as other small functional rooms - all fully air-conditioned. The location of the Complex is serene and very ideal for intellectual activity; and its closeness to the National Theatre also means that students can have ready and easy access to a lot of practical cultural activities around the Theatre and Artists' Village/National Gallery of Modern Art close by.
For the purpose of NICO programmes, these will include among others: lectures, discussions, field trips and case studies, which would be interspersed from time to time with techniques like talks or demonstrations as the need arises.
For now the programmes are non-residential but the Institute is making effort to secure rented apartments, which can accommodate participants. Participants may however wish to make their own personal accommodation arrangements.
As part of both programmes, participants would also be exposed to field trips or excursions to Tourists sites or other places of interest to broaden their views and knowledge about Nigerian cultural life. Students are expected to submit reports on their field experiences.
Method of Application
NICO courses are open to cultural workers, officers in the Federal and State Civil Service, Parastatals, the private sector and indeed anybody who is interested in a career in the culture sector.
