Building technology capacity among the youth in Kwara

The Ilorin Tech Skills Program is a virtual learning academy where individuals can access a variety of high market demand ICT courses to learn and acquire skills sets that are internationally recognized, job ready and of high value.
The major goals of the program are to

Improve employability and capacity of youths in Kwara State.

Encourage youths to be innovative and creative in exploring new ventures.

Prepare youths in Kwara for the global workforce via technology.

The participants will go through interactive training courses with projects, virtual seminars and obtain a certification at the end of each track.

The program starts in June 2021.



Responsive Web Design

In the Responsive Web Design Certification, participants will learn the languages that developers use to build webpages: HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) for content, and CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) for design.

Javascript I: Algorithms and Data Structures

While HTML and CSS control the content and styling of a page, JavaScript is used to make it interactive. In the JavaScript Algorithm and Data Structures Certification, participants will learn the fundamentals of JavaScript including variables, arrays, objects, loops, and functions.

Front End Development

Once participants are familiar with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, they will level up their skills by learning some of the most popular front-end libraries in the industry.

Data Visualization

Data is all around us, but it doesn’t mean much without shape or context. In the Data Visualization Certification, participants will build charts, graphs, and maps to present different types of data with the D3.js library.

Javascript II: APIs & Microservices

Until this point, participants would have only used JavaScript on the front end to add interactivity to a page, solve algorithm challenges, or build an SPA. But JavaScript can also be used on the back end, or server, to build entire web applications.

Quality Assurance

As programs or web applications become more complex, one should test them to make sure that new changes don’t break their original functionality.

Python I: Scientific Computing

Python is one of the most popular, flexible programming languages today. It can be used for everything from basic scripting to machine learning.

Python II: Data Analysis

Data Analysis has been around for a long time. But up until a few years ago, developers practiced it using expensive, closed-source tools like Tableau. But recently, Python, SQL, and other open libraries have changed Data Analysis forever.

Python III: Machine Learning

In this certification, participants will use the TensorFlow framework to build several neural networks and explore more advanced techniques like natural language processing and reinforcement learning.

They’ll also dive into neural networks, and learn the principles behind how deep, recurrent, and convolutional neural networks work.

Information Security

With everything we do online, there’s a vast amount of sensitive information at risk: email addresses, passwords, phone numbers, and much more.

With the Information Security Certification, participants will build a secure web app with HelmetJS to learn the fundamentals of protecting people’s information online.

Renewable Energy

Electric vehicles might seem like a thing of the future for the developing world, but as this is one of our core areas of focus, we are preparing our youth for the future and the best jobs abroad, while also introducing them to the alternative energy grid especially solar energy and inverter sytems.
