Javaughn Douglas, a recent graduate of the Flow Foundation’s Skills for the Future digital literacy programme, is ready to put his training to good use after being selected for an internship with technology company Fujitsu.
Douglas, who was the valedictorian and top overall student with an average of 99.6 per cent for the second cohort of graduates in April, will gain valuable experience as a data entry clerk. He said the Skills for the Future programme played a tremendous role in his selection for the internship.
"I am excited about what my future holds having completed the Skills for the Future Programme. I have been given an opportunity to be a part of an internship programme at Fujitsu and will be able to put in practice all the things that I learnt,” said Douglas. “In fact, this opportunity would not have been possible if I hadn't done the training. I am looking forward to the other opportunities that I know will come my way.”
The Skills for The Future programme is a collaboration between the Flow Foundation and the Mona School of Business and Management through the Caribbean School of Data. It’s a free 12-week programme for persons 16 to 60 years old, offering training in digital literacy and data management so they can compete in the growing digital environment.
