Heritage Information Technology Training (HITT)

Heritage Information Technology Training (HITT) Programme

The Heritage Information Technology Training (HITT) programme is the latest technology-based social sustainability programme established by Heritage to improve information technology awareness and address the digital divide issues that impact individuals within its operating communities.

The HITT programme provides an opportunity for Heritage to engage community stakeholders, including schools, seniors, young adults and adolescents, to provide knowledge in Information and Communications Technology (ICT).

In 2023, the  HITT programme will partner with the National Energy Skills Centre (NESC) to equip persons between 7 and 65 years of age with essential “Information Technology” skills. In keeping with the UN Sustainability Goals, the programme aims to empower future leaders and build capacity among participants, by delivering quality digital literacy training beyond basic ICT skills. Each person will receive an NESC certificate of participation upon successful completion of the programme.

The goals and objectives of the Heritage HITT programme are to:

  • Improve digital literacy and competencies amongst stakeholders through quality education programmes.
  • Reduce the digital divide within Heritage’s neighbouring communities by increasing participants’ life skills training in information technology.
  • Align with Heritage INSPIRE Values, the innovation needs of the ever-evolving digital landscape, and the collective ICT needs of the communities in which Heritage operates.
  • Provide an opportunity to forge relationships with a wide array of community stakeholders (students, parents, schools, youth groups), as well as public and private agencies.
