The second edition of Huawei Ghana’s National Ambassadors Awards ceremony was conducted to celebrate and recognize the work that the company’s ambassadors put in over the last year, contributing to the company’s success.
The virtual event, which took place on Wednesday, July 21, 2021, recognized instructors and students in a variety of award categories for their contributions in assisting Huawei Ghana in fulfilling its promise to H.E. By 2024, Nana Akufo-Addo plans to train 10,000 Ghanaians in ICT.
Dr. Boakye Agyemang, HOD of the Koforidua Technical University’s Computer Science Department, praised Huawei for its support, which has increased the school’s IT department’s capabilities since 2019. So far this year, the University has been able to train 600 students and certify 101 others in this manner.
He mentioned the university’s plans to launch AI studies, with the goal of certifying 500 people by the end of the next training and examination cycle. He also mentioned that plans to merge Huawei ICT Academy courses into its core University program were well advanced.
Dr. Fred Kyei Asamoah, Director of CVET, stated in his submission that due to the breadth of the courses, efforts are being made by the commission — in collaboration with Huwaei — to ensure that Huawei ICT Academy courses are included in the standard curriculum at all universities across the country.
