New Horizons, a computer learning centres has further charged students of Caleb University, Imota in Ikorodu, Lagos State to embrace the acquisition of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and e-business skills for a secured future.
With employers of labour frowning at the calibres of graduates churned out from higher institutions as well as spiraling youth unemployment becoming a socio-economic challenge, experts from New Horizons said students can make themselves employable as well as be self-employed immediately after graduation through the acquisition of international professional skills and certifications in ICT.
General Manager, Education Business, New Horizons, Bolaji Olaoye, speaking at the New Horizons 'Infotainment Fiesta' organized at Caleb University to introduce Huawei ICT Academy from Huawei Technologies Limited, encouraged the students to get Huawei skills and certification so as to position themselves as tomorrow's indispensable professionals in the ICT industry, both locally and internationally.
Olaoye said, "We are here to add highly-sought extra value to Caleb University students. Caleb University happens to be one of our partner universities, and the whole idea is that we are enhancing the quality of our existing technology offers to them with more robust, hot and latest technologies.
We brought Huawei Technology as our partner in this initiative through Huawei ICT Academy and Certification."
He added that, "We decided to add that value to what we have been offering the students, and to further sensitize the students on the necessity to always validate their skill set with External International certification (EIC).
We place emphasis on skills so that when the students acquire the skills which we impart to them through our partners, they now validate it with External VUE/Prometric International Certification Examinations so that any one of them that travels abroad will not go and be doing minor jobs, but will be able to compete with their counterparts abroad."
