Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine launched IT Generation project to teach Ukrainians IT specialties for free
The Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine has launched a new IT Generation project. The project is launched in partnership with Binance and the Lviv IT Cluster. This initiative aims at helping Ukrainians get into the tech profession for free. There are currently more than 10 million internally displaced people in Ukraine, and IT remains one of the few industries that continues to operate and develop steadily. Despite the full-scale war, Ukrainian IT companies maintain their capacity, fulfill contracts, and, therefore, need skilled workers.
The program will last for 2-6 months for Ukrainian citizens aged 21 to 60 without formal education and experience in the IT field.
The main goal of the IT Generation is to help talented Ukrainians find themselves in one of the most promising tech areas and develop the Ukrainian economy for the victory and successful future of our country.
“IT Generation is a big and important project for Ukrainians and our economy. It will provide free quality education for thousands of our citizens to get a job in IT. We can solve a number of staffing problems for tech companies which will allow the industry to grow faster. The IT Generation project will create new career paths for people who lost their jobs due to the war,” says Mykhailo Fedorov, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Digital Transformation of Ukraine.
