“N-iX had a longstanding, fruitful collaboration with AWS, having achieved Advanced Tier Services Partner status. When we learned of the AWS GetIT program, which aligns with our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives, we saw an opportunity to extend our partnership to an educational framework and eagerly decided to participate. This program represents an invaluable chance for Ukrainian students to develop tech skills aligned with their European peers.
The AWS GetIT program is a tool to increase digital literacy among students who are on the verge of deciding their future career paths. It shatters gender stereotypes in engineering, demonstrating that the tech field is open to anyone with a genuine interest. It allows students to explore the tech sector under the aegis of a globally renowned company, inspiring them about potential career growth in the industry while nurturing essential skill-building.
Our target audience includes 12-13-year-old students and schools ready to implement this initiative among 7th and 8th graders. We aim to select 20 schools, benefiting around 2,000 students.
The program spans 3 to 6 months, during which Amazon ambassadors will guide students to create their applications and have an opportunity to participate in a national competition. We enthusiastically invite all eager learners who aspire to discover something new and challenge their potential.”
– comments Sviatoslav Kavetskyi, Director of Industry Affairs at N-iX.
The AWS GetIT program currently accepts enrolment indications from schools in Ukraine for the 2023-2024 academic year, from September 2023 to May 2024.
