The Enugu/MTN ICT and Business Skills Training is a Youth Development initiative aimed at equipping young Enugu entrepreneurs with tech-enabled skills to keep their businesses relevant and competitive.
Today, tech skills are vital, not optional, to stay competitive.
Recognizing this, the Enugu SME Centre, in partnership with the MTN Foundation, Meta, Microsoft, and Capitis Global Ventures Ltd, is excited to introduce the Enugu/MTN ICT and Business Skills Training.
This program readies Enugu’s young entrepreneurs for today’s rapid business world.
A Youth Development Initiative
The Enugu/MTN ICT and Business Skills Training is a Youth Development initiative targeted at young entrepreneurs between the ages of 18 and 35 in Enugu.
Aim: Empower local businesses with tech skills for competitiveness.
Method: 5-week online training, including expert Masterclasses.
Microsoft teaches participants “Digital Era Entrepreneurship,” “ICT for Business Success,” and new Generative AI skills.
The training will last for 2 weeks and will be delivered through a blended learning approach: self-paced (participants will study content shared by the facilitators) and instructor-led sessions (a facilitator will train them online for about 1.5 to 2 hours).
Microsoft will hold instructor-led sessions every day for the duration of their 2 weeks training.
Meta, on the other hand, will train participants on “Skills to Build Brands and Grow Businesses Online” through their Meta Boost Small Business Studios.
