The vision of the NEDC is to develop the Northeast region of Nigeria into a safe, economically vibrant, ICT driven 21st Century region.
In line with this vision, the NEDC seeks to Establish ICT Resource Training Centers within Higher Institutions in the GTB states and also revamp the Existing ICT Resource Training Centers of the BAY states.
These centers will train youths in the areas of Entrepreneurship development, Bookkeeping, Fundamentals of Computing and Digital Graphics Design and Smartphone Management and Repairs.
The NEDC's vision leverages a robust local content-driven ICT industry that delivers Social and Economic Services to the people of the Northeast through her trained participants.
We expect that this will, in turn, create more jobs across the region and promote the development of human capacity.
The training will focus on enhancing literacy and skill acquisition modules for youths drawn from different sectors of the community and catchment areas around the centres. Each participant would be trained on Entrepreneurship, Computer Appreciation and Basic Accounting Module, after which participants are grouped into two (based on choice and personal capabilities). While one of the two groups will train on Graphics Design Classes, the other will train on Smartphone Repairs.
THE NEDC ICT RESOURCE TRAINING PROGRAM
Our vision, though simple, yet very emphatic, is to catalyse the birth of new businesses and ensure the survival of new and existing businesses at the North East region of Nigeria.
Entrepreneurship Development & Book Keeping
This program focuses on mindset re-engineering of the participants. Participants are exposed to what it means to practice entrepreneurship, the mindset of successful entrepreneurs, and what they must do to succeed as entrepreneurs.
It also has Bookkeeping for small business owners as an added course to equip program participants with needed tools to be complete entrepreneurs.
Fundamentals of computing
As most of our participants would not have had previous interactions with a computer system prior to participating on the program, the computer appreciation course was designed to prepare participants for the major Computer related courses of the ICT Resource Training program.
Participants undergo trainings on introduction to parts and functions of the computer system and how to use various software applications to solve everyday computing needs.
The smartphone repairs course will take the participants through the fundamentals of telecommunication, the component parts of the smartphone, introduction to basic electronics, and how everything comes together during repairs.
By the end of the course, participants would be able to repair any type of smartphone – Hardware and Software.
Graphics designs made the list of courses for strategic reasons. The north is known for beautiful works of art and craft. The graphics design training was designed to fit in with the culture and needs of the region.
By the end of this course, participants would be able to effectively carry out designing and printing of graphics; incorporate computer designs in caps making, clothe designs, calendars, etc. and generate income.
