The Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA) through the AGRA ProVision has launched a virtual brand-new tech-driven local agricultural academy in Namibia.
The initiative will work closely with partners and suppliers in the industry to develop high-end specified training for the country’s agricultural sector.
The academy is a special e-learning platform that allows students to study at their comfort zone and at their own pace.
It is a platform that accommodates senior secondary scholars, school leavers, farmers and employed individuals.
“The AGRA Agricultural Academy offers a unique opportunity for anyone looking to earn qualifications, skills and practical knowledge in the field of agriculture, with a wide range of certificate programmes and diplomas,” the company said in a statement.
AGRA aims to address many challenges faced by Namibians hence the need to access high-quality agricultural training courses.
The company made it known that the e-learning platform is supported through practical training from industry leaders.
“Agri-pedia is an Internet Technology computer platform that presents all information in text, video, animation and graphic format and makes the transfer of information refreshing and visually understandable. All content is adjusted where needed to ensure that it is relevant to Namibian conditions,” it said.
The academy which was created by the professional consultancy business unit of AGRA is committed to the fulfilling mandate of “creating a smart Namibia.”
AGRA ProVision hopes to improve the technical skills and practical abilities of Agra’s core client-base, as a means to improve the productivity and the overall business success of its clientele.
