The cooperation with SAP aims to create 450 jobs in the IT sector. The participating countries Algeria, Angola, Ethiopia, Egypt, Côte d'Ivoire, Ghana, Kenya, Morocco, Nigeria and Tunisia have a great potential for jobs and growth in the digital sector – but there is a lack of trained professionals to support companies and institutions in the implementation and use of software.
Therefore, the project will train and certify 600 job-seeking university graduates in digital skills in a three-month training programme. The programme includes modules on digital topics such as cloud, big data, business analytics and soft skill enablement as well as on communication, presentation and negotiation techniques to prepare the talents optimally for their future careers in the digital sector. Due to the well-founded and wide-ranging training concept, the programme prepares the participants for a variety of positions in the private sector/ in the "SAP Ecosystem".
After successful completion, the graduates are certified SAP Associate Consultants and can be hired directly by companies. As part of the programme, all participants receive a job offer from an SAP partner or customer company. The aim is to place at least three out of four programme graduates in employment in the local IT sector.
