FULLY FUNDED: How to Apply for NITDA’s 3MTT Programme

According to the Federal Ministry of Communications, Innovation, and Digital Economy, the Three Million Technical Talent program is a vital component of the Federal Government’s Renewed Hope agenda.

It aims to strengthen Nigeria’s technical talent base in order to power the digital economy and position the country as a net talent exporter.

The program aims to create a pipeline of technical talent in order to meet President Bola Tinubu’s goal of creating two million digital employment by 2025.

The program’s initial phase, which will be carried out in conjunction with the National Information Technology Development Agency, will engage a wide range of stakeholders, including fellows, training providers, partners, and placement organizations.

“We will select individuals with interest in specific skills and fund the cost of their training with training providers accepted into the programme,” the agency said on its website.

The following technical skills will be prioritized in the first phase: software development, UI/UX design, data analysis and visualization, quality assurance, product management, data science, animation, AI/Machine Learning, cybersecurity, game development, cloud computing, and dev operations, according to the agency.

NITDA stated that fellows will be trained in specific technical skills that will enable them to compete in the local and global technical talent markets, and that organizations interested in joining its pool of training providers to train 30,000 fellows across Nigeria without a physical facility can apply.

It noted that there is no fee required to be selected as a training provider nor a fee at all for the fellows of the programme.
