  • Through this training, civil servants will be trained to use the company's suite of digital tools. The partnership between Microsoft, the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE), and the Capacity Building Commission (CBC) will provide help to civil servants in helping the underprivileged.
  • CBC carries out capacity building for the ministries of Defence, Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, Expenditure, Finance, Social Justice, Civil Aviation, Ports and shipping, and Labour.
  • One of the major competence gaps identified among these job roles was the lack of digital productivity application skills needed for working on Microsoft office tools such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint presentations.
  • As part of this collaboration, Microsoft will develop an online learning course on Microsoft Office 365 digital productivity suite offering for MSDE. This program will help government employees to acquire key digital skills thus enabling ease of doing business with more digital solutions.
