Uganda Institute of Information and Communication Technology (UICT) has graduated over 200 students. 200 of the 500 students who have been undergoing training and testing in seven ICDL modules, received their certificates at the event. Whilst speaking to the trainers who also received their certificates, Dan Muhenda, the ICDL Market Development Executive for Uganda, thanked UICT and the trainers for working tirelessly to ensure all the students were supported despite the hard conditions brought by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The graduating students were encouraged to value and use the digital skills they have developed. “There is so much that we have all learnt during the training of this course and I believe it’s important that we make good use of the skills learnt,” Francis Bwire the UICT Digital Learning Project Coordinator revealed. The training, which was sponsored by Uganda Communication Commission to enable the training of 500 teachers, is aimed at creating I.T Ambassadors who will then train the wider Ugandan population. The 500 students have all been undergoing virtual training in ICDL workforce modules.
