Guided by the belief that every motivated person deserves the opportunity to develop skills and grow in the highly perspective and fast-growing IT industry, ITCE’s team founded a NGO named SkillsAssembly which serves as a platform for ideas, projects and experts to collaborate and contribute to the local IT ecosystem and skills development of junior talent.
With the tremendous support of Accenture Bulgaria, SkillsAssembly is set to run the second edition of the Jump2IT Training Program running in the period May 11 – July 31, 2020.
ITCE is contributing to the Jump2IT Training Program as a Corporate Social Responsibility initiative by proving its expertise on training program design and delivery and its facilities (online and on-site) as well as team’s efforts on making the program happen.
