A three-day intensive training for Anambra youths on digital skills has commenced in Awka, the Anambra State capital.
The state government, through the Special Adviser to the Governor on Youth Empowerment Programme, Dr Nelson Omenugha, is partnering the National Information Technology Development Agency, NITDA, to host the skill acquisition programme tagged “NITDA Digital Economy and Employability Programme, DEEP”, and aimed at exposing the youths of Anambra State to the opportunities in digital skills and ICT.
Speaking at the opening ceremony, Dr Omenugha said that the whole idea revolves around the efforts and determination of Mr. Governor, Professor Charles Soludo, to equip and empower Anambra youths to become useful at home and exportable abroad.
He emphasized that the programme will not just expose the youths to the opportunities in digital economy, but will prepare them for successful digital employability journey.
Noting that the opportunity connects one to rich pool of learning resources and enhances self-paced learning, Dr Omenugha encouraged the participants to maximize the opportunity, which he said also enables them to jumpstart digital marketing and emerging entry-level roles like digital onboarding, virtual assistance, among others.
He assured that on completion, participants will be awarded two certificates, one from Google and another from NITDA.
