The increasingly technological nature of jobs has seen occupations that have not traditionally required technology are increasingly demanding it. Many workers and job seekers lack foundational digital skills.
Our approach to re-skilling the workforce is the Foundational curated Digital skills training according to the demand-driven ICT skills that can connect workers and job seekers to the opportunities in the technology ecosystem and imbibe the ability to use digital tools to promote entrepreneurship. Recognising the scale of the challenge to prepare for the future of work is the backdrop against which the Digital States was created.
Applications are now open for Gombe, Rivers, Kano and Lagos with a target of 500 youths per state.
