Real Tech Skills training center has recently held their first batch of students graduation, they were trained technical skills including laptop, flat TV, photocopier and printer repairs. The graduation was held at the President’s International Award (PIA) in Bakau.
Managing director of PIA Ibou Camara said the graduates were trained on high skills and assured employers that they will not regret in hiring their services.
He reminded graduates that it is important that they focus on the areas that they were trained on and to share the experience gained from the training, in both technical and management skills. “Students were trained on different skills like coded web design, database design and records management and provided basic computing skills for lower level students.”
Mr. Camara said they realised that The Gambia is facing an increasingly serious problem on youth employment and in its ability to create jobs for the rapidly growing youth population for the growth in entrepreneurship skills and provision of high skilled technology. “Continuous training will be essential to reduce our dependency on European and foreign skills labour for economic growth and development.”
