HÀ NỘI — Phase two of the YouthSpark Techspert Project, implemented by Microsoft and Kenan in Hà Nội this year, has opened up career opportunities for 150 students.
The project results were announced on Saturday in Hà Nội by Microsoft and Kenan.
Being a part of YouthSpark Techspert, Microsoft is providing financial and technical support for Kenan to conduct training and apprenticeship to increase career opportunities for the youth.
From June until the end of August this year, three training sessions and nine weeks of apprenticeship were conducted for 150 vocational students in Hà Nội.
The training provided knowledge to students about effective tools to improve working skills, such as Office 365 and Windows 10, and improved their sales and interpersonal communication skills.
In addition to the training, the students participated in apprenticeships at three major IT retail stores – Media Mart, Pico and Phúc anh – which helped them to see the practical value of the training sessions.
Results of the pre and post-training evaluations revealed that 96 per cent of the students had better knowledge of Microsoft products and 100 per cent students showed significant improvement in their knowledge of sales and interpersonal communication skills following the prgramme. — VNS
