Former Microsoft Enterprise Skills Program Manager, Martin Ndlovu, assumes the new role of head of Skills Development of Microsoft’s Africa graduates and IT professionals skills program, SkillsLab.

In his new role, Martin will be responsible for creating and running programs that drive upskilling of graduates and IT professionals across the region.

Microsoft tells us, Martin is a visionary thinker who is passionate about the development of the African youth. He also brings to the role a wealth of experience in the technology space.

Africa is geared to becoming the youngest continent with the fastest-growing emerging markets, Martin Ndlovu shares. It is clear that for Africa to be competitive on the global market, its young population needs to embrace digital skills. As that[digital skills] will soon be a part of every industry conceivable.

Herein lies our goal to impart the skills that will enable every person and every organization on the continent to achieve more, he concludes.

In June this year, Microsoft 4Afrika rebranded its AppFactory program to SkillsLab. The company notes that about 2455 youths have graduated from 25 SkillsLab across Africa and the Middle East.
