WHY LEARN TECH NOW
The indispensability of tech skills today has resulted in a global rising need for skilled tech resources to solve problems or come up with innovative ideas to help keep companies and establishments relevant in the industry. No one wants to be kicked out of the moving train, right?
One would think that there were enough techies to sate this rising need but the reverse is the case. There are not enough skilled tech resources available for jobs worldwide and sometimes, it is difficult to find the available few for jobs. This scarcity has created a skills gap in the tech industry and some institutions have launched programmes that train individuals in tech skills to help bridge that gap. One of such programmes is the Bincom Global Tech Programme.
OVERVIEW OF THE BINCOM GLOBAL TECH PROGRAMME
The goal of the Bincom Global Tech Program is to solve one of Africa’s biggest employment problems which is finding the right and employable talent especially within the tech ecosystem. The Global Tech Programme seeks to help young talents who are looking to launch their tech careers globally.

The Bincom global tech programme also incorporates eMigr8 tech-enabled visa service that enables tech talents to relocate to countries such as the Uk, United States, Canada and France.
