Information about the project
Universal ICT Education Programme
In today’s Digital World, it is essential that each individual be conversant and proficient with IT tools. It is with this objective that the National Computer Board has implemented with the Universal ICT Education Programme to train a maximum number of individuals on the IC3 Course. The implementation model is particularly interesting whereby resources of State Secondary Schools which were idle after schools hours, weekends and during vacations have been put into use and enabled the training of more than 249,000 persons as at date.
National implementation: Mauritius
Ongoing from 01/09/2006 to 31/12/2018
