Since 2018, we set up the “HUAWEI ICT Academy” with 4 excellent universities in Cameroon. They are the SUPPTIC, Yaoundé University One, Douala University and Douala IUC College. Till now, more than 1,000 students have participated into the training course and dozens of teachers have passed the certificates of Huawei ICT Academy which enables them to teach students by themselves in the classroom. At the first "Huawei ICT Competition" in Cameroon, the team from Douala University won the championship and they will fly to China after the pandemic to represent Cameroon to attend the African Regional Final of Huawei ICT Competition. We wish them a great success.

What is the concept of HUAWEI “Learn on” program?

Everyone in the world shall have equal access to technologies. Especially during the epidemic, people find it difficult to go to classroom or attend field trainings. According to statistics, more than 1.5 billion students in the world are affected by the COVID-19. Therefore, Huawei uses its technologies to bring the classroom online. Up to now:

  • More than 130 MOOC online training resources have been provided online for free of charge, covering advanced technical fields such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), big data, 5G, and Internet of Things (IoT).
  • More than 100 online Trainers are provided from April to December, and more than 1500 teachers are expected to be trained.

This program was highly spoken and recognized by United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). Almost all the countries in the sub-region are starting to register the program. We welcome all the students in Cameroon to register the program and enjoy the education online freely.

What is the future plans of HUAWEI ICT Talent project in Cameroon?

Working as strategic ICT partner of Cameroon and according to the strategic agreement in the field of ICT between Cameroon and Huawei, Huawei will always work proactively with all the related parties to help Cameroon to train as many ICT talents as possible.

  1. All the students in Cameroon are encouraged to make both online and offline studies in the Huawei ICT academy and Huawei will issue them the related certificate after they complete the required study and test.
  2. For those outstanding students, Huawei will send them to China for further training as the “seeds for the future” and attend the global ICT competition.
  3. In addition, we are going to involve more teachers and students to join HUAWEI ICT Academy and encourage the employer of telecommunications companies to join us to create more job opportunity to the students

Today I would like to take the opportunity to announce 2 incentive measures for Cameroon HUAWEI ICT Academy this year.

  1. HUAWEI Cameroon will provide 20 professional internship opportunities for Cameroon HUAWEI ICT Academy certified students in 2020,the same time HUAWEI Cameroon will recommend excellent candidate to our partners, customers, Huawei branches in other countries.

HUAWEI is programming a double- will recruitment fair in July, Mainly oriented to the ICT talents in Cameroon. Considering the impact of Covid-19, the recruitment will be held on-line.
