Tech Valley Pakistan Announces 1,000 IT Scholarships For Balochistan

Balochistan students can now apply for one thousand IT scholarships thanks to Tech Valley Pakistan, a partner organisation of Google.

In a press conference on Wednesday, Umar Farooq, the CEO of Tech Valley, and Abdul Aziz Uqaili, the chief secretary of Balochistan, announced the scholarships for students in Balochistan.

Farooq claims that the Tech Valley is pleased to announce the signing of an MOU with five different Balochistani government organisations to provide Google Career Certificate Scholarships there.

Tech Valley Pakistan’s first collaboration with the provincial government is through the partnership between the colleges, higher and technical education department, education department, science, information, and technology department, labour and manpower department, industries and commerce department, and health department.

The signing of the MoU represents a significant accomplishment in Tech Valley Pakistan’s efforts to empower people and communities throughout Pakistan through digital education and skill development.

In accordance with the agreement, Tech Valley Pakistan will collaborate closely with each of these provincial agencies to make high-quality digital education and skill-development programmes available to all.

“I want to recognise the efforts of Tech Valley, the Google Career Certificate programme, and all of our departments, especially our information secretary, who made this partnership possible,” Abdul Aziz Uquaili said during the ceremony.

“Our objective with this programme is to give participants access to top-notch training and certification opportunities that will enable them to compete in the rapidly evolving tech sector.”

A flexible, self-paced online training programme that can help learners get ready for careers in a variety of high-growth industries is the Google Career Certificates programme.

The programme includes assessments, mentorship sessions, specialised training, and practical experience. In addition, Google employees with decades of experience in these fields developed and taught the programme.

“We want to empower Balochistan’s youth by giving them access to the newest digital tools and certifications. We can give our students access to cutting-edge digital education and skill development programmes that can better prepare them for the job market with the help of Tech Valley Pakistan, according to Hamza Shafqaat, the information secretary.

Globally recognised certifications in fields like project management, UI/UX design, digital marketing and e-commerce, IT support and automation, data analytics, and cybersecurity will be covered by scholarships.
