As part of efforts at bridging the gap between job seekers and available opportunities in the digital space, NerdzFactory Foundation has partnered with Access Bank to bridge the Nigerian technology skill gap with DigiGap 4.0 programme.

The Foundation, in a statement noted the DigiGap 4.0 programme, which commenced April 14, 2024, has equipped participants with in-demand Information and Communications Technology (ICT) skills necessary to excel in the modern digital economy.

“In a country where unemployment rates stand at 33.3 percent and human capital potential remains largely untapped, initiatives like DigiGap are crucial in bridging the gap between job seekers and available opportunities.

“Building on the success of previous iterations, DigiGap 4.0 reached an additional 500 young Nigerians, providing them with the tools and knowledge needed to thrive in the digital age,” NerdzFactory Foundation stated.

It also revealed that the programme focused on workshops, webinars, and hands-on projects on specialised tracks, such as product design and digital marketing.

Through practical learning experiences, participants honed their skills and gained valuable insights into the digital landscape.

Commenting on the youth digital empowerment scheme, Ade Olowojoba, Managing Director of NerdzFactory Foundation, said: “DigiGap 4.0 represents a significant milestone in our mission to empower Nigerian youths with the skills needed to succeed in the digital era.

“By investing in their knowledge and capabilities, we are shaping individual futures and driving progress for our nation.”
