IN VIEW of the high measure of unemployment among young people, the non-profit organisation Aptech Europe, with support from the Accenture company and the job website Profesia.sk, launched a Slovak educational project called “IT v kurze” or “IT is in” in English. Its goal is to increase IT skills among young people and thus help improve their opportunities in the labour market, Aptech Europe wrote in its press release.

IN VIEW of the high measure of unemployment among young people, the non-profit organisation Aptech Europe, with support from the Accenture company and the job website Profesia.sk, launched a Slovak educational project called “IT v kurze” or “IT is in” in English. Its goal is to increase IT skills among young people and thus help improve their opportunities in the labour market, Aptech Europe wrote in its press release.

“Unemployment among young people is 32 percent in Slovakia, and the majority of them are secondary school and university graduates from the humanities fields,” said Tomáš Božik from Aptech Europe. “Through the project we want to increase the attractiveness of IT employment and help unemployed graduates apply themselves in the field and thus launch a successful career.”

He added that for several years now Aptech Europe has provided education and training of young people in the field of IT and brings academics closer to the real needs of the labour market, which is experiencing a chronic lack of qualified IT specialists.
