10 Aug 2021

On August 3, 2021, the 3-week course that brought together 28 people with migration background came to an end. The students graduated from the IT Skills Programme organized by Schaffhausen Institute of Technology (SIT) and Acronis. Programme participants were trained in essential technology and employment topics designed to provide them with the resources to establish a better career and brighter future.

Students were taught how to use popular business tools like Microsoft Word, Excel, Outlook and PowerPoint, safe internet habits and cyberthreat/scam avoidance, financial literacy, how to create an effective CV and basic job interview skills.

Each course was conducted by professionals in their spheres — bringing together volunteers from SIT, Acronis and Plesk to support them in their studies. A small graduation ceremony celebrated concluded the programme, celebrating their success as they prepare to acclimate and succeed in their new community.
