At the end of April, the French operator made two announcements for the development of vocational training in IT in The Kingdom of Morocco.
It was Thursday, April 25, 2019 in Tunis. On the occasion of the inauguration of Orange’s first Digital Center in Africa, Thierry Millet, General Manager of Orange Tunisia, announced the opening in 2020 of identical structures in several West African countries, in Egypt but also Morocco.
Code and entrepreneurship
Designed as incubators with a wide scope, ranging from training to computer code, to investing in start-ups that have flourished from this learning, these places are designed to host and network a youth eager for entrepreneurship.
A few days earlier in Casablanca, the French telecommunications operator headed by Alioune Ndiaye in Africa, signed a framework agreement with the Moroccan Office of Vocational Training (OFPPT) to form a first time 500 technicians specialized in fiber optics.
More broadly, this public-private partnership (PPP) provides for the development of training to support the development of very high speed and the telecommunications sector in the Kingdom. Like other PPPs signed in the automotive sector, the OFPPT and Orange will work together to identify priority curricula, to reflect on the methods of teaching to be preferred and to trainers.
In Morocco, Orange is also involved in cyber defense, for which it is internally training candidates with solid foundations in computer security, from local schools or universities.
