Specialization Track 3 - Data Science

INTRODUCTION

IT companies at the forefront of technology have been changing their hiring and training policies drastically in the last five years, and Maxim Nyansa has obtained the best results helping its trainees follow a similar track.

Now having a permanent training facility at our disposal, we have changed the setup of our specialization programs to optimally match the Ghanaian and international job market in Information Technology.

Maxim Nyansa offers various specialization programs to prepare IT graduates for a specific career with the newest technologies. These new programs in principle run full time for a 3 month’s period. After the program trainees have one or more projects they have worked on to show to future employers on a GITHUB repository.

Businesses in Ghana who are interested in a similar program for their young IT professionals in combination as part of a traineeship or internship on a concrete job are cordially invited to contact us here.


BLENDED LEARNING

Programs have a so-called blended learning approach and consist of the following elements:

1. Be an ambassador: share your enthusiasm for Maxim Nyansa with your network, in particular via social media.
2. Volunteer: we have active teams of volunteers, compassionate professionals in both Ghana and the Netherlands.
In particular we regularly seek IT professionals as trainers for our graduate programs.
3. Campaign: you can initiate a fundraising campaign for us at work, in your school, church or neighborhood. You can contact us for ideas on how to do that.
4. Give us your end of life cycle computers. We will refurbish them and give them a second life in a public school in West-Africa.
5. Financially adopt a school or a young IT graduate to take part in one of our programs.
