Courses That We Offer

VACID Africa Institute is an international knowledge institution that integrates ICT Learning with entrepreneurship, agribusiness and cottage industry development.

We acknowledge that learning in most of the developing economies is skewed towards skills formation and development. We also acknowledge that skills need an infrastructure within which they need to be exploited productively. Indeed, skills alone have to be interwoven with the operating economic fibre of their location for employability. Employability of skills, whether by an existing organization or one created by the person possessing the skill is very much dependent on what tools one has available to them. This is where ICT knowledge, business knowledge and entrepreneurship come in. Providing an operating environment such as a productive sector like agriculture, education, health, nutrition, transport or any other is a requirement.

VACID Africa Institute is a product of research and integration of productive sector focus to the policy directions of national economies. We have designed courses with our partners to create relevance in skill orientation by mixing this with technologies. We have formed collaborations that will expose all our learners to what can enable them create sustainable wealth/employment generation vehicles – their own businesses.
