It was a breath of fresh air to hear the federal government making efficient steps in positioning the youths at the forefront of technological advancement and skill acquisition.
The Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports under the leadership of the honourable minister Mr Sunday dare has launched the DEEL initiative aimed at giving Nigerian Youth an added advantage and a competitive edge in the global workforce.
DEEL is an initiative that stands for Digital Skill Acquisition, Employability, Entrepreneurship, and Leadership.
Some of the courses that will be offered and highlights of the programme include:
- Digital literacy and Digital Skills Acquisition.
- Robotics and Artificial intelligence training.
- Mobile device repairs training
The project is currently in progress and presently undergoing Google online training on how youths can make use of social media to market their brand and influence product sale.
We think this is a brilliant initiative and a positive step by the honourable minister of youths and sports Mr Sunday Dare, in equipping the youth with necessary digital skills for self-employment and empowerment in the fast-growing technology-driven environment.
Interested youths can join the online classes at DEEL classes
