Skilling the youth for success
15 June 2021 | Education
The webinar, Skilling Youth for Success Post Covid-19, aims to support all youth through technology skills development for in-demand roles in the digital post-Covid economy.
All youth are invited to register for the event and the two partners are looking forward to an engaging event with the youth from across the globe.
The series of webinars by the IsDB and Microsoft will allow thousands of youth from across the globe to attend this online training, which aims to support the youth through capacity building. It also seeks to enable them to thrive in a complex future by equipping them with relevant technical skillsets, such as digital and computing skills, as well as soft skills.
According to the organisers, Covid-19 has created a global economic crisis, forcing tens of millions of people out of work, with the youth experiencing some of the worst of the pandemic’s socio-economic impacts.
Furthermore, due to school closures, lockdowns, and work from home, the pace of digital transformation has accelerated, creating a need for the youth to learn new technical and soft skills to rejoin the workforce.
Skillsets that will be honed include empathy, personal resilience, perseverance, the ability to communicate effectively, cultural intelligence, and decision-making.
The webinar series covers the following topics:
• Day 1 (June 20): How to land a job post-Covid
• Day 2 (June 21): Critical soft skills
• Day 3 (June 22): Digital technology skills as critical employability skills (Part I)
• Day-4 (June 23): Digital technology skills as critical employability skills (Part II)
• Day 5 (June 24): Self-employment
