Johannesburg — A new partnership has been launched to bridge the digital skills divide across the continent.

Dubbed the SAP Dual Study Programme, it is part of of the SAP Skills for Africa offering.

The project has been launched in partnership with the Maharishi Institute, which facilitates university education for unemployed youth from 11 countries in Africa.

In collaboration with universities across the continent, the SAP Dual Study programme allows high-calibre university students to obtain SAP functional or technical certification during their final two years of studying towards a Bachelor's Degree.

This allows them to leave university with both academic and industry-relevant qualifications.

Having graduated, support is also provided to students to find attachments in the SAP ecosystem.
