Hagital commits to democratise tech education

Hagital commits to democratise tech education

Technology education promotes innovation, creativity, and personal development, according to Hagital Consulting, a Nigerian tech skills training institute.

The firm helps Africans learn technology skills and transition seamlessly into the tech industry through career coaching services.

In today’s advanced world, quality tech education is vital and as technology continues to evolve quickly, there will be an increased need for qualified people in this area. “While there was a huge demand for quality tech talent, available training institutes were more interested in issuing certificates and charging high fees than grooming tech talents. I started Hagital to solve this problem,” said Omiyale Yomi, founder and CEO, Hagital Consulting Limited.

“I believe that everyone should have access to high-quality tech education, and our platform makes that possible,” Yomi continued. “The platform is set to revolutionise the way students learn technology skills and will prepare them for the future of work. It is designed to provide students with hands-on experience in a range of tech fields, including data science, data analysis, software application testing, cloud computing, product design (UI/UX), IT business analysis, digital marketing and software development.”

“We place a lot of emphasis on coaching the students till they get their first job or internship placement.

“We majorly train on tech skills and help newbies without any tech background to transition to a career in tech,” Yomi said.

Hagital Consulting has students in more than 15 countries, including the UK, US, Canada, Spain, Dubai, France, Switzerland, Sweden, South Africa, China, Turkey, Portugal, Kenya, South Africa, and Saudi Arabia.
