The UK-Nigeria Tech Hub, an initiative of the UK Government Department of Digital, Culture, Media, and Sport has launched its Design School program aimed at equipping30 aspiring designers with world-class product design skills required in the 21st century to enable them to become employable or kick-start their career in Tech.
The pilot phase of this program is a 2-months program that will kick-start on the 1st of February, 2021 and to adhere to COVID-19 health guidelines, the program will run virtually.
