Elev8, a YNV Group portfolio company, has partnered with Microsoft and the Qatari Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) to launch the Digital Center of Excellence in Qatar.
The program is a key part of Qatar’s National Vision 2030 which aims to train thousands of professionals across all demographics to create a highly skilled workforce for a rapidly growing and technologically advanced economy.
Accelerating Digital Transformation in Qatar
Reskilling and upskilling will play a key role in equipping the people of Qatar with the advanced knowledge of the modern technology and cloud computing needed to drive new, sustainable economic opportunities for Qatar.
“Elev8’s partnership with Microsoft and MCIT marked a pivotal moment in Qatar’s digital transformation journey to create a highly specialized workforce with the essential digital skills to succeed in the Fourth Industrial Revolution comments elev8’s president Maria Balbas.“
Elev8 has plans to upskill more than 6,000 people from Qatar’s workforce over the next three years.
In the past two years already, over 2,500 people have participated in elev8’s skilling initiatives in the country. This has equipped them with the necessary hard and power/soft skills to drive innovation and digital transformation in Qatar and around the globe.
