Vocational and Technical Training in Africa
One of the major growth areas caused by the COVID lockdowns throughout Africa has been the increase in vocational and technical training – for example, Traindemy from Nigeria, offers access to online courses provided by vocational and technical schools to help them acquire in-demand skills. It says its user base is increasing by 25% month-on-month over the last few months. Traindemy, launched in 2018, provides digital access to short courses in areas such as arts and crafts, agriculture, engineering and technology.
Meanwhile, Rwanda has been chosen to lead the rest of Africa in implementing the Giga Initiative, a United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) initiative aimed at connecting every school to the internet. Giga, launched in 2019, aims to provide connectivity to every school in the world.
