The effects of the first global pandemic in the digital era still hold sway.
Businesses are making necessary adjustments and are struggling to survive. More so, there’s been increasing dependence on digital communication, eCommerce, and other virtual technologies.
No one knows if everything would go back to what they once were. So, here now is the new normal.
Businesses and governments are preparing for life post-COVID, putting in place the right talents and digital assets. As a result, there is increasing skill demand, but the supply-curve remains steep.
We understand from 2019 reports that the Nigerian youth unemployment rate was at 13.96%. So, approximately 14 out of every 100 youths are without jobs. And here’s something else that we do understand; These numbers would reduce greatly if at least 7 of every 14 unemployed Nigerian youths develop the right digital skills for these times and the future, in preparation for the coming digital transformation.
For this reason, Start Innovation Hub launches a new Digital Skills Training Program to empower 600 youths for job-readiness and self-sustenance by 2021.
“Tell me more”, you say? Of course, you need to know more.
