The British School of Outdoor Education (BSOE) and the University of Abuja (Uniabuja) have said they will jointly train five million Nigerian students on digital skills.

The coordinator of the programme and Nigerian students’ ambassador, John Aikeremiokha, who disclosed this to journalists in Abuja yesterday, said for Nigeria’s economy to flourish the country must equip its youths with the necessary tools and skills to thrive in the world of technology.

With the recent launch of the federal government’s block chain technology and digital economy initiatives, Aikeremiokha said the demand for skilled professionals in the digital sphere had never been higher.

He said, “Yet, many of our students, especially those from underserved communities, lack access to quality training opportunities that can unlock their full potential. That’s why we are proud to announce a groundbreaking initiative aimed at providing digital skills training to five million Nigerian students.

“The ability to demonstrate IT skills on one’s resume is essential for getting noticed by employers and securing interviews.”

Daily Trust reports that in a recent survey over 80 per cent of recruiters cited proficiency in digital technologies as a top requirement for candidates.

Aikeremiokha said by participating in the training programme, students would not only gain valuable skills, but also enhance their employability and stand out in a crowded job market.

He also announced the launch of the Earn As You Learn initiative which will allow students to gain practical experience and earn income while continuing their education.
