A Marrakesh-based institution, MIT Academy, has launched a free work-linked training program for those passionate about web and mobile app programming, with a scholarship amounting to MAD 1000 per month.
After a first successful class, MIT Academy, an economic interest grouping, organizes the second class (2019 – 2020) in partnership with L’INSTITUT SWOT that consists of a two-year work-linked training specializing in web and mobile trades. MIT Academy, L’INSTITUT SWOT, and a number of web companies have designed the training with the purpose of giving the apprentices a practical immersion into the field.
The apprentices are exposed to programming tools and techniques and given real projects to apply their knowledge in, under the supervision of their trainers. At the end of the two-year program, they obtain Specialized Technician degree recognized by the state, as well as two years of experience in the field, which raises their chances of finding employment.
“The apprentices tend to take the training seriously because they know the are working on real projects that will be meticulously verified by the trainers,” explained Rahal Aboulfath, MIT Academy’s academic adviser, in an interview with International Morocco.
“I have gone through other trainings before, but I find this the most practical of them,” stated Soulaimane Aatar an apprentice at MIT Academy.
The tuition fee is entirely covered by MIT academy, and the apprentices are granted merit scholarships of between MAD 600 and 1000.
Students with a minimum of a baccalaureate degree and having a passion for the field of technology are invited to attend a open house that will take place on September 9 and 10, and apply by filling the form:
