            The permanent secretary is the first in the flow at authority because he is the one that approves any financial record in the ministry. And he is followed by HOD who is the accountant of the ministry and the internal auditor who is the one that goes through all the financial record to make sure it corresponds to the amount allocated to the ministry. Next is the payroll officer and the cashier.
EXPERIENCE ACQUIRED DURING THE PROGRAMME
            This training is an added advantage to my career as a secretarial student. I can now receive mails, register them and dispatch them to the appropriate office. I learn how to retrieve files/mails from the file cabinet/steel cabinet, I proved upon my typing speed with the opportunity accorded me in the department. I learn how to duplicate a typed document using the photocopying machine and also how to make use of letter headed paper in printing out already typed letter.
            I was exposed to materials used for working in Finance & Accounts Department. This material includes:
-           Cash book
-           Budget book
-           Claim form
-           Personal Emoluments Record form
-           Other payment/payment voucher
            I was exposed to a book known as Cash Book which is called TREASURY CASH BOOK. It has 20 columns and the columns are divided into two sides: Debit and Credit side.
            I was exposed to another book known as Budget Book. This book contains the names of all the staff and their annual salary under each department in the ministry. There are (2) two types of Budget in the Government:
-           Capital budget: It fund is made for roads building while
-           Current budget: It fund is made for the staff spends on motor vehicle like fuel payment.
            I was exposed to another book known as Claim Form. It is a form filled by an individual for a particular activities performed in the government office in order to claim a certain allowances. Example; night duty allowance, overtime allowance and Annual year allowance. This claim form describes for activities perform which tells the government about the expenditure in order to get the allowance.
Also, I was exposed to Payment Voucher which is used in the government office to make payment in form of contract or supply. It has a department head where you will write the name of the ministry. It also has a departmental number which is the number of the voucher. It has paying station where the voucher is made. It also has payee full name and Address, Sub Head is also there where you will write the code given to the head. Note that every expenditure made in the civil service must be done through the voucher and also the signature of the receiver. G W means General Warrant, it is written at the financial Authority inside the payment voucher. PGW means Provisional General Warrant; it is vouchers that have not been received.
Finally, I was exposed to a book known as personal Emoluments Records form. P.E. is a form very important to payroll. It is basically used for salary payment/pension payment. It is being arranged from month of January to December i.e. yearly. It contains basic salary taxable, amount for the month, Gross payment and net payment. Therefore, it is updated individually every month for the salary. I learnt how to prepare this personal Emoluments form.
CHALLENGES ENCOUNTERED DURING THE PROGRAMME
            Despite the knowledge, experience and exposures acquire during the programme, there are challenges and problems encountered:
1.         INADEQUATE EQUIPMENT: It is expected that students should be posted to a well equipped organization where they can acquire expected competency. But on the contrary in the ministry of commerce and industry, I begged to use the computer system which is the only equipment available in the ministry, but it was never available to my use.
2.         FINANCIAL PROBLEM: During the programme I encountered financial problem, the student find it difficult to provide transport fare every day because there was no financial assistances from anywhere and this made me at times let go off certain things so as to endure that, yet I attend work everyday.
3.         REJECTION: This is a common problem student suffered during placement. On our arrival to the ministry, we were told that the ministry had stopped receiving students on industrial training, but after sometimes of pleading, we were accepted.
RECOMMENDATION
Despite the great Job that SIWES is doing, there are still some areas requiring attention for effective acquisition of skill which is the main aim of SIWES. They include the following:
i.          There should be an agreement between the institution and the ministries because some times the students are being rejected because the establishment where they have being posted are not aware of their coming.
ii.         The institution should ensure that students are posted to the establishment where expected standard of experience can be achieved.
iii.       Finally, supervision should be done on regular basis, this will help increase the consciousness and commitments of student’s interest about the work since the supervisor could visit at anytime, and this could also help the student by confiding in his lecturer about his challenges in the work place, and with proper advice, he will be encouraged to put in his best.


CONCLUIONS
            The Student Industrial Work Experience Scheme (SIWES) had not only exposed me to the globe, it has exposed me to various office documents such as cash book, payment voucher, photocopying machine, stapling machine, file cabinet, computer etc. which made it easier for me to carryout what I had learnt in school practically.
            The programme has also exposed me to the procedures of handling incoming and outgoing mails in an office. It exposed me to great people in the society and thereby helping to overcome inferiority complex and harassing my desire to be great and possibly greater.
            The individual training programme has widened my understanding of real work situation and I am happy that I have undergone such a programme.

CHAPTER FIVE
5.1       PROBLEMS ENCOUNTERED DURING SIWES
There are numerous problems I encountered during my Industrial Training Programme at Nkwegu Ugbala
THE MAJOR PROBLEM ARE:
1.         PROBLEM OF SECURING A PLACE OF ATTACHMENT: I had most of problem searching for a place of attachment for my Industrial Training because most companies rejected my request giving one reason or the other that they don’t want I T student.
2.         FINANCE: The Company did not make provision to pay IT student nor do they draft any allowance, packages so as to lease the expenses for the six months programme.
 3.        INACCESSIBLE MACHINES: The I T students were not giving the opportunity to operate most of their machine they will rather ask you to watching them and learn.
4.         PROBLEMS OF LIGHT: The Company normally have light problem. Most of the machine that they are using cannot function without light and cannot function without light and we cannot bake throughout day unless if there is light.
5.         INADEQUATE FACILITIES: The Company or establishment did not provide enough facilities and equipment which make the programme to be difficult for me because the company or the establishment didn’t provide accommodation for I T students.

RECOMMENDATIONS
1.         The Industrial Training Fund should compile list of employer’s available training places for industrial attachment and forward the list to the coordinating agencies.
2.         The Company should be willing to accept and encourage student that are seeking for SIWES placement in their company.
3.         The Company or establishment should also grant access to student to make use of their machines to know how to operate and make use of their machineries.
4.         The Company should pity student by providing small allowance package to help them finance themselves during their Industrial Programme.
5.         The establishment should provide adequate facilities to make the programme enjoyable for student.
6.         The Company or the establishment should do something about their light so that it will not disappoint them when they are making use of it.

CONCLUSION
In conclusion I am saying that SIWES programme should be lasted to a period of eight months in order to learn, acquire more practical experiences that will help me as a student and also in life. My Industrial Training was very educative and enjoyable because the programme exposed me to learn many things and to be self reliance without depending on anybody.

CHAPTER FIVE
5.1       PROBLEMS ENCOUNTERED DURING SIWES
            I encountered numerous problems during my Industrial Training programme at Salt Lake Hotel.
THE MAJOR PAYMENT AREAS ARE HIGHLIGHT BELOW:
1.         LATE PAYMENT OF SALARY: the establishment normally pay their salary very late, and I.T. student find it very difficult to cope with transportation, atimes there will be no money for transportation, by so doing the person have to walk on feet, and these brings about latest to duty.  
2.         PROBLEM OF LIGHT: light is the major thing an establishment needs for proper running, and also for comfort of the guest and functioning of the facilities and equipment in an establishment but the absent of light bring about discomfort of guest and poor management of the establishment.
3.         INADEQUATE FACILITIES: The establishment didn’t provide any accommodation for the I.T. students.
4.         COMMUNICATION: There was poor and ineffectual information dissemination due to complex links in the establishment.
5.         POOR SECURITY: The establishment did not provide proper security, which makes the lives of I. T. students to be at risk Arm robbers do disturb at night most times which is a threat to the lives of I.T. students.
 6.        PROBLEM OF SECURING A PLACE OF ATTACHMENT: I had most of problem searching for a place of attachment for my Industrial Training because most establishments refused my placement request.

RECOMMENDATIONS
1.         The establishment should provide a very good security in the establishment for the comfort of the I.T. students, the guest and their main staffs.
2.         The establishment should provide adequate light for the establishment, for the comfort of guest, I.T. students, staffs and for proper functioning of equipments and facilities.
3.         The establishment should make sure that before the end of each month that the salary should be paid, so that the I.T. student will be care of their transportation to work.
4.         The establishment should provide a good accommodation for the I.T. students in their establishment.
5.         The Industrial Training Fund should compile list of employers and available training places for industrial attachment and forward such lists to the coordinating agencies.
6.         The Federal Government should make it mandatory for all Ministries, companies and government parastatals to provide attachment places for students.

CONCLUSION
            Industrial Training is important, Educative and Interesting, it is a programme that exposes undergraduate to world of paid. It makes an individual to have as sense of responsibility and be diligent to work.
            Extending the programme to more than six months will be better for the student to have more time to learn and gain all the practical experiences needed.

PROBLEM ENCOUNTERED DURING SIWES
FINANCE: The establishment didn’t make provisions for any sort of emoluments neither do they draft any allowance, packages for the I.T student so as to ease the expenses incurred for the six months period.
COMMUNICATION: There was poor and ineffectual information dissemination due to complex links in the establishment.
INADEQUATE FACILITIES: The establishment did not provide any accommodation for the I.T students.
INACCESSIBLE MACHINENES: The I.T students were not allowed to operate most of the machines meant for the actual activities rather are asked to watch and learn.
PROBLEM OF SECURING A PLACE OF ATTACHMENT: I had problem in searching for a place of attachment for my industrial training because most companies and government organization declined my placement request.
           

RECOMMENDATIONS
With the achievement and experiences made during my industrial training, therefore I recommend that.
1.                   Tertiary institution need to double efforts in securing quality places of industrial attachment for student’s participants in SIWES.
2.                   Students should be made to realize that SIWES is not holiday job but a course of study designed to enhance their relevant production skills and employability after graduation.
3.                   There is need for closer monitoring of the SIWES function and activities in tertiary institution by the supervising agencies (NUC, NETE and NCCE) to ensure that the scheme is properly implemented.
4.                   In order to guarantee quality assurance of the scheme, there is a need for thorough supervision of SIWES participants by institutions and the I T F.
5.                     The I T F should ensure that the backlog in payment of student allowances the negative image being created for SIWES.

CONCLUSION
             My six months industrial training attachment with Nkwegu Ugbala Grand Arena Tower of unity has been one of the most interesting, productive and instructive experience in my life.
Through this training I have gained new insight and more comprehensive understanding about the real industrial working condition and practice, it has also improved my soft and function skills.
