The Abuja Chamber of Commerce and Industry, ACCI, has commenced a three week Information and Communication Technology, ICT, Summer Vocational Training.
The Director of Best Centre, ACCI, Dr. Tinuke Temitope made this known while speaking with newsmen in Abuja.
Dr. Temitope who was represented by the Administrative Officer of the Centre, Amina Gani said the three week training is for children between the ages of four to five.
She stated that the participants would be trained in the areas of Microsoft Office, Coding and Robotics, Website Design, Photography, Graphics Design, Music and Instrument and the three main indigenous languages, Hausa, Igbo and Yoruba.
According to her, the training was to equip the children with skills during the holidays towards becoming self reliant and earning income in the future.
The Director explained that the Centre also decided to introduce the training of indigenous languages to enable the children speak their mother tongue and guard against extinction.
Dr. Temitope reiterated the commitment of the Centre towards programmes that would compliment the efforts of Government on job creation and youth empowerment through professional training in line with international best practices.
Also speaking, the Planning and Research Officer of the Best Centre, Mr Williams Samuel described entrepreneurial skills as key to self empowerment hence the need to catch the school children young through the ICT training.
Mr Samuel therefore advised parents against allowing their children to roam about during the holidays but rather engage them in activities that would improve their lives and secure a better future for them.
He said the Centre had engaged the services of experts that would effectively impart knowledge on the participants during the three weeks training.
