@followlasg to Employ Facilitators for @CodeLagos Initiative

With the roll out of #CodeLagos only a few months away, the Lagos State Ministry of Education on Tuesday announced the commencement of the screening and selection exercise for facilitators for the programme.

In April 2017, three hundred (300) Coding Centers across six (6) Education Districts in Lagos State will be commissioned, marking the beginning of the #CodeLagos after-school programme in both public and private schools - primary, secondary and tertiary. Centers will also be set up at State public libraries and other community spaces.

Speaking at a press briefing, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Education, Mr. Obafela Bank-Olemoh, stated that; "CodeLagos will not only cultivate a savvy workforce to drive our mega-city, but it will generate employment and business opportunities as we mobilize up to 1,500 facilitators in 2017 alone."

CodeLagos is an initiative of the Lagos State Government which aims to teach 1 million Lagos residents to code by 2019. The program will foster necessary skills to create sustainable solutions to social challenges and create employment opportunities.

Mr. Bank-Olemoh, underscored the commitment of the Lagos State government, under the leadership of His Excellency, Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, to position Lagos State as the technology frontier in Africa. This is also in line with the Lagos Smart City initiative, for which an MOU was signed in 2016 with Dubai Smart City.

The application process, which is primarily online, entails a submission of bio-data and completion of a general assessment. Successful applicants will receive world-standard trainings on the necessary skills areas.

Qualifying candidates must be available to participate in all the required trainings which would be provided by the State in collaboration with private sector partners within the technology sector. They must also be willing to commit at least 12 hours weekly to facilitate CodeLagos courses at designated centers upon the launch of the initiative in April.
