Youth Ministry trains over 3,000 online in digital skills during lockdown

THE Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Mr. Sunday Dare, has expressed satisfaction that 3,000 Nigerian youths have so far taken advantage of the ministry’ online training and attained competency badges under the ministry’s DY.ng initiative.

The minister disclosed this during the maiden digital conversations with the Nigerian youth hangout on Zoom on Friday.

The programme focused on digital skills prospects for Nigeria youths.

The minister said the training, a product of the ministry’s collaboration with IBM, has been hugely beneficial to a large number of Nigerian youths who have taken their time to tap into the free online courses during the COVID-19 shutdown to learn and acquire skills in areas of their choice.

More youths continue to sign up for the training, which started two weeks ago when the COVID-19 crisis began in Nigeria, even as it crossed the 3,000 beneficiaries milestone.

The inster urged those that are yet to sign up for the free training to tap into the opportunity during this period, “the badges could add to your curriculum vitae and serve as an added advantage in the job and entrepreneurial market, which is that the skills will give our youth what we call AA – Added Advantage, to their degrees or diplomas.”

The DY.ng initiative comprises of both online and offline trainings in a wide range of areas such as Web Development, Cloud, Blockchain,  Enterprise Design Thinking, Data Science and Analytics, Artificial Intelligence, Coding, Internet of Things, APIs and Microservices, Containers and Kubernetes, Cybersecurity, Quantum Computing, DevOps, amongst others.

The courses are to be delivered to over 500,000 Nigerian youths in various centres across the country over the next two years but due to the national shutdown only the online are currently accessible and the rate at which our youths are studying is nothing short of impressive.

Meanwhile, the ministry has continued to work to deliver industry desired skills and training opportunities to the youth through its DEEL programme which was launched at The Ministry’s Africa Youth Day celebration in Abuja last year.

The DEEL programme is set to equip the Nigerian youth with Digital Skills, Employability, Entrepreneurship and Leadership skills.
