ESIEE IT has notably developed a “tailor-made” program in order to meet the important needs of the local market (more than 300 positions to be filled for a little less than 200 coders trained per year: that is to say around 30 % of the needs assessed) and to the international.
This strategic partnership guarantees the development of training courses that meet the needs and requirements of future coders and enables Lebanon to benefit from French excellence in the IT field. The visit of the French Ambassador to Nabatiyeh for the inauguration marks the importance of this project for France.
This four-month full time training course will lead, following an exam, to a dual certificate from France and Lebanon. In addition to the opportunity it offers to young Lebanese to train for jobs in high demand, the method of financing this course makes it particularly accessible to the entire Lebanese population. This is because graduate students and their employers pay tuition fees only upon recruitment. ESA is developing a network of local and international partner companies ready to hire future developers.
ESA Coding Lab’s first training location is based in South Lebanon in Nabatiyeh, similar locations are expected to open in other parts of the country soon. In total, the program provides for the training of 300 to 350 people over 4 years.
Applications are now open on ESA Coding Lab’s website for the second training cycle, which will begin in mid-March 2022.
