Grazac Academy develops young Nigerians and connects them to entry-level jobs in the tech industry at no cost.
Every day more people enter the workforce than the number of jobs created, research shows job seekers apply for more than 20 jobs per day. The era of covid has accelerated the growth of digital businesses while changing the youth employment space. The workspace is getting truly digital and the implication is that digital skill sets are in high demand.
However, it seems that the skills available in the labor market do not match the demands of employers. How are the rapidly growing young Nigerians preparing to take on these new digital roles? The big question here is “Are young Nigerians equipped with the skills needed in this new era?” “
In Nigeria today, having two degrees doesn’t even guarantee a job and that’s why we started Grazac Academy to help young Nigerians learn tech skills and pay nothing until they are hired.
The unemployment rate is alarming, but we will not fail to mention that our young people are not prepared for the tiny jobs available. A close analysis of the digital sector shows a huge skills-based skills gap.
We believe that if Africa is going to rise and if Nigeria is going to develop, we must not neglect the technological space and our young people. Technological advancement is the breakthrough of Africa’s rise and Nigeria being the most populous country in Africa with one of the largest populations of young people in the world, the development of technological talent will not only increase. our GDP, but will prepare us for the 5th industrial revolution.
Grazac Academy co-founder and CEO Victor Adeleye revealed that the reason the training is free is that the main excuse for young Nigerians not learning skills is lack of funds and this new model is aimed at To connect at least 500 young people to entry-level jobs each year, participants must repay the company when they are hired.
Deborah Oladele, program manager at Grazac Academy, also stressed that “it is not enough to acquire technical competence, but it is also important to have soft skills that will improve employability and help participants achieve or to keep the job of their dreams ”. In her statement, she also said that participants will not only receive certificates that will serve as proof that they are qualified to work in any tech space locally and globally, but will also be trained on essential soft skills. to own in the tech industry and that’s what sets them apart from the rest.
The learning mode is hybrid and courses ranging from product design to front-end web development, back-end web development and mobile app development have been designed so that no basic knowledge or experience is not required to learn. The training will last five (5) months and participants will work on concrete projects during their compulsory internship, which will help them to familiarize themselves with the challenges to be overcome and overcome and to gain experience when they log on. to jobs.
