MCIT Discusses Implementation of Integrated Technological Development Project in Kafr El Sheikh


The working group of the cooperation protocol on Integrated Technological Development Project, between the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) and Kafr El Sheikh Governorate, has held a meeting to discuss the implementation of the protocol. The meeting was attended by representatives from the National Council for Women, Kafrelsheikh University, Delta University for Science and Technology, and Kafr El Sheikh Governor’s Office.
 
During the meeting, certificates of completion were handed over to the participants of the e-learning promotion and e-content production activities, organized by the Central Department of Digital Community Development at MCIT. The activities represent one of the main pillars of the Project, and aim to develop human competencies and build the capacities of citizens in Kafr El Sheikh, especially young people.
 
The meeting is part of the ongoing efforts to help create job opportunities for young people through several pillars: supporting digital transformation, developing education capitalizing on IT, and building women’s capacities in digital marketing through Qodwa-Tech initiative. This is in addition to organizing training programs to qualify vocational school graduates to find decent job opportunities.
 
Moreover, as MCIT works to promote e-learning and IT tools, 11 new e-learning centers were accredited, and 40 people were trained as trainers within Cisco Academy program. In addition, more than 100 people were trained to produce interactive educational e-content using content development programs; the training targeted students, graduates and faculty members at Kafrelsheikh University, with the aim to develop their skills and qualify them for the labor market.
 
The training activities coincide with the decree of the Minister of Higher Education to replace printed academic courses with digital content, starting from the academic year 2021-2022. In this regard, a number of graduates of the Faculty of Specific Education in Kafr El Sheikh were qualified to convert printed academic courses into e-content.
 
The protocol activities also included organizing training courses and seminars within the framework of Qodwa-Tech initiative, which aims to empower craftswomen through developing their skills in ICT, fintech and financial inclusion. A number of girls and women were trained to utilize social media in digital marketing and e-commerce, to be able to find job opportunities, market their craft products and administer their product pages on social media.

It is expected that the protocol activities will include carrying out training courses for the young graduates of the vocational schools in Kafr El Sheikh. The aim is to develop their skills in computer, IT, call center and customer service programs, warehouse management and secretarial work skills to help them fill in-demand jobs in the labor market.
