The vision of the NEDC is to develop the Northeast region of Nigeria into a safe, economically vibrant, ICT driven 21st Century region. In line with that vision, the NEDC, in partnership with selected institutions has established ICT Resource Training Centres across the North with the vision of training the residents of the North East states on highly-demand ICT skills.
The training will focus on enhancing literacy and skill acquisition modules for youths drawn from different sectors of the community and catchment areas around the centres.
Each participant would be trained on Entrepreneurship, Computer Appreciation and Basic Accounting Module, after which participants are grouped into two (based on choice and personal capabilities). While one of the two groups will train on Graphics Design Classes, the other will train on Smartphone Repairs.
All participants must be residents in the Northeast zone of Nigeria to be eligible, and we do follow a strict selection system aimed at selecting only the best-suited candidates for each of the training categories.
During selection, our selection team looks out for the following –
- We try to focus on candidates that meet the set criteria laid down by the team for each unique round of training
- Candidates are rigorously interviewed to determine their character fit
- Our post-training goal is to establish a skilled workforce for the Northeast, therefore, we focus on candidates that we believe would go all out to establish businesses post-training with little or no added efforts from any government at any level
- We try to ensure an even spread of participants selection across all LGAs and senatorial districts of each of the 6 states that make up the Northeast zone of the country.
