The 2024 leg of the programme comes with a newly re-imagined roll-out plan, taking participants on a three-level progressive journey, starting with a foundational phase, then an intermediate and advanced phase, each meticulously designed to equip participants with practical expertise to set them up for self-sustaining digital careers.

Digify PRO project manager Nothando Gininda said, “The new three-level programme directly responds to the ever-increasing youth unemployment rates and the clear need for more inclusive learning opportunities, especially targeting the previously under-represented.”
