CII + NIIT to Educate Africans

CII and NIIT have entered into an agreement to help create ICT infrastructure and foster International Software Talent in the African continent. As part of this capacity building and skill development endeavour, NIIT and CII will share high quality education resources from India and involve other appropriate players from the Indian industry to help Africa develop human capital for the global IT industry.

In line with its commitment of providing skilled ICT manpower in the region- NIIT recently launched the State of Art Training campus in Botswana which will accommodate 7000 students in various IT streams by 2010. NIIT now plans to scale up operations and forge partnerships with more Universities and Colleges to extend its IT training offerings for the youth in Africa.
