Maxim Nyansa offers a 1 month’s intensive training programme for young IT graduates to prepare them for the job market. The training is highly practical and is given by experienced IT professionals. Every year Maxim Nyansa selects 20 high potential trainees to follow this programme. The trainees generally have graduated from an African university with a Bachelor in Computers Science or Software Engineering or a Bachelor of Education with a specialization in computer science and have completed their national service.
During the programme, trainees will have the opportunity to obtain an internationally accepted IT certificate in SCRUM. While African universities generally have a good theoretical curriculum, there is often not much opportunity to practice IT skills. Hence, at Maxim Nyansa, a large part of our programme will consist of practical assignments.
In this programme, trainees learn various key skills for the 21st century job market in information technology, such as:
More important, participants will make a purposeful plan and learning programme for their future.
After the programme, trainees are equipped for their first job, or stay for an additional 3 month’s intensive specialization programme.
