Exciting opportunities for ICDL Asia in Yangon, Myanmar

Print page

National Skills Standard Authority

ICDL Asia visited Yangon, Myanmar from 19 to 21 August 2015. During this trip, ICDL Asia had the honour of meeting up with Ms Khin Mar Aye, Secretary of National Skills Standard Authority of Myanmar, as well as the Rectors and fellow staff of two other Universities, together with one of our local ATCs, RVi Institute.

National Skills Standard Authority (NSSA) is the governing body for the competency standard for vocational education. Ms Khin agreed on the importance of Digital Literacy in the development of the country and upskilling of the population. ICDL Asia is now in contact with relevant parties to discuss possibility of mapping ICDL to their national ICT curriculum.

ICDL Asia also got to visit University of Information Technology (UIT) and University of Computer Sciences (UCS). UIT is one of the most prestigious IT universities in Myanmar, having a long heritage since 1971 and UCS is the largest IT University in Myanmar, comprising of around 3000 students. It was both the universities’ first time being introduced to ICDL. They were receptive towards the global international ICT standard and ICDL Asia’s ATC, RVi Institute is now following up with them.

Since opening up its market, Myanmar has been experiencing exponential growth in their country. ICDL is excited to play a part in the country’s growth.
