TAKE IT FORWARD: EMPOWERING MOROCCAN YOUTH THROUGH DIGITAL SKILLS AND JOBS IN THE ICT SECTOR

The «Take IT Forward» project aims to meet the dual challenge of employability of young graduates and the competitiveness of companies in the ICT sector in Morocco.

The digital sector is the second largest job-creating sector in Morocco (10%) with outlets such as IT development, customer service, web marketing or community management.

However, 45% of companies have difficulty in finding candidates because of the inadequacy of training and employment, a high turnover rate (30%) and difficulty in finding profiles adapted to the requirements of the profession (mindset and soft skills). Moreover, the proportion of women in digital professions remains very low.
