Digitalent is a strategic intervention by ICT Authority on behalf of the Ministry of Information Communication Technology to develop and sustain high end ICT talent by removing gaps between industry requirements and the capabilities of the local workforce. This is in line with the National ICT master plan which underscores the need to develop a critical mass of high-end ICT skills and to develop an ICT ready workforce to meet the needs of the industry. The programme has trained over 900 ICT graduates. This call for applications is the fourth round and aims to on-board 400 recent ICT graduates.
The Presidential Digital Talent Programme (PDTP) takes fresh and qualified ICT graduates through an internship programme designed to build their ICT capabilities, ready for the ICT market.
The interns are placed both in Government Ministries (10 months) and in the private sector (2 months) during the programme giving them a holistic understanding of how ICT works both in the public and private sectors. This exposure helps the interns to acquire and apply ICT skills for effective service delivery, and efficient implementation of projects. Apart from the technical aspects of the internship, the interns are also mentored on leadership skills and innovative thinking. After the programme, the interns emerge as talented and well rounded individuals with a clear career progression path in the ICT sector, and make valuable additions to any company.
The internship is offered to Kenyans who are recent graduates with ICT, Engineering, Communication, Law, Medicine, Built Environment, Agriculture and Education degree who must have attained a first class or upper second class honours between Jan 2017 to date.
