How To Write a SIWES Industrial Training Report in 10mins (I.T Report Format, Grading Analysis)

Certain guidelines must be followed when you are writing a SIWES industrial training report. With these guidelines I will show you, you will certainly be on your way to getting an A grade in your Industrial Training just as I did during my time.

Heads up! Attached to this post is a SIWES Industrial Training report format and a sample report to help you with the necessary guidelines on how to write an industrial training report.


Student Industrial Work Experience Scheme (SIWES) is an essential criterion in a student’s training program in tertiary institutions. This experience usually involves three to six or twelve months as the case may be of intensive training in an industry of the student’s choice. It was established in 1973 by the Industrial Training Fund (ITF)

In my institution, for example, it is a 6-month training program that must be defended and a comprehensive report must be written on knowledge gained and its practical relevance.

SOME AIMS AND OBJECTIVES OF Student Industrial Work Experience Scheme (SIWES)

  • Expose students to work methods and techniques in handling equipment that may not be available in the university.
  • To provide the student with an opportunity to apply the theory in a real work situation, thereby bridging the gap between university work and actual work experience.
  • To provide an avenue for the student in Nigerian universities to acquire industrial training skills and experience in their course of study.
  • Make the transition from the university to the world of work and this enhances student contact for better job placement
  • To enlist and strengthen employer’s involvement in the entry process of preparing university graduates for employment in industries.

Writing Your Industrial Training Report.

In preparing your report, there are lists of compulsory headers and patterns that must be properly addressed.

A standard Industrial Training report consists of FOUR CHAPTERS. Let’s go-ahead to talk about each chapter and show you how to write an industrial training report step by step.

NOTE: YOU MUST INCLUDE Declaration, Acknowledgements, Summary, Tables and Figures list in your IT report format.


In Chapter 1, you are expected to produce an introductory message to your report. Start by talking about the Student Industrial Work Experience Scheme, its aim and objectives. This is usually a compulsory part of report writing. Thereafter, talk about your organization’s history, the nature of the organization, number of employees, type of business or service rendered, etc. Basically, say what you know about the company in which you worked. Also, outline the organogram of the company and the responsibilities of those in major positions.



Chapter 2 gives a clear insight into the daily activities of the intern in the organization. Describe intensively all the activities you were engaged in throughout the six months internship. You can do this in the order of how you were engaged weekly or monthly. You could also rank them in order of their importance, from the lower task to the high challenging tasks. In this Chapter, it is important to highlight your involvement.

I.T Report Defence Secrets to getting a Good Grade

It is no longer news that this I.T is a 6credit load. Industrial Training will help scholars & dullards & at the same time cripple scholars & the weak ones in the class.
It is a game for smart ones that did the I.T & even the smart ones that ended up not doing the I.T.

“Don’t be too confident that because you did your I.T in a reputable company. You also have to know how to write an Industrial Training report.

So it leads to a breakdown of the marking scheme



Let’s start the analysis of the marks on ‘how to write industrial training report’

Firstly, Supervision – Most of you guys might take this supervision for granted by not being supervised. If you’re not supervised due to distance.
The arrangement will be made.
When you guys resume.

You will go to the Ubit office. Of which they will tell you guys to come.
They will tell you to call your supervisor & they will ask the supervisor some questions about you.
Please Do well to inform your supervisor prior to that time ✊🏻. That he will be called from school. Make your supervisor no cast you.

LOGBOOK- Hmm 20mrks.
Sweet as it seems. But difficult to get it complete.
That logbook & the Report are like baes😍. I will explain.

Make sure your logbook is filled with a detailed drawing. Even if you do not do something sensible, try & draw full am.
They must see drawing. Hustle your marks from the lowest point to the point of the unreachable. Beg your coursemates or even friends to draw for you.
So u can get that mark.

The real fire, the REPORT.

Furthermore, the report follows a special dynamics which I will explain.
Pickup your first prayer point from here. Your report should not fall into the wrong hands. Prior to your defense.
You will all submit the logbook, the report & the presentation slide together.
When you all submit.
The IT coordinator will share this report.
Across to all senior & junior lecturers for them to access your report & score you.

Those lecturers will access your logbook coupled with your report.
You must put in your best. To give a well-detailed report that tallies with your logbook.
You might not be good at presentation. But let your report be highly reasonable.
Let your report be filled with detailed information. Make sure you snap pictures.
During the course of your I.T of you on the job and Put it inside your report. It shows the originality of your I.T report. It shows you participated. Don’t just go Online & be putting google pictures only.
Pack many pictures of you.
On the job. They believe anyone can just go online & pick a report.
When marking your report, Make sure your report is highly sensible.

Now,💥 let’s talk about your defense.
As I said earlier, Don’t let any mark go down. Get everything you want to get. It’s a 6credit load.

First & Foremost: Dressing

If you don’t have a suit. Go & borrow. Even if you don’t have anything upstairs. Dress well and Collect your 5marks. Now, I want to make a sound warning to you all: Don’t say because you did your I.T in a company, with different functions. So you must put everything you learned in your report. Without being able to explain one well.

I learned a lot about 10 different things. But I purposely wrote 5 things in my report & give a detailed explanation on the 5 very well. So when I was defending. I knew my question will be based on the 5 I wrote on my report.

In addition, don’t be a jack of all trades and Master of None. You can put the 10
..if & only if you can explain the 10.
Remember, you have limited time for the presentation. You can’t put all this into consideration & give a detailed report on something significant & sharp. Your report should be straight to the point & sharp.

Moral lesson: when you’re presenting. Don’t say anything you will not be able to explain well in detail
I think that ends the I.T defense💥💥. If you follow this process🧐 your A remains unshakable✊🏻
No fear✊🏻.*
