Africa must match its youth education to the needs of the future digital world. According to the World Bank, this shift is crucial and it will help integrate millions of people into the workforce. In several countries, there is a push toward the development of more web, digital, and computer science-focused curricula.

Ynov Campus, a Moroccan computer engineering school, has partnered with Cisco, the US tech giant. Under the agreement they both recently signed, Cisco will help bolster digital skills in Morocco.

The partnership, according to Ynov Campus’s CEO, Amine Zniber (photo, left), will offer the school’s students many opportunities.

"As one of the world's leading information and communication technology companies, Cisco plays a crucial role in digital and technological transformation on a global scale. Thanks to this partnership, Ynov Campus students will now have access to world-class training resources, internationally recognized certifications, and internship and job opportunities within Cisco's global network," Zniber told a local media outlet.

The signing reinforces the partners’ commitment to education, innovation, and youth employability in Morocco. Besides benefits for students, the deal will also provide opportunities for joint research and development as well as collaborations on innovative technological projects.

The goal is to provide young people with the necessary skills to succeed in a constantly evolving digital economy and contribute to Africa’s development. According to the World Bank, the continent will account for a third of the world's young population by 2050.
