Canon Central and North Africa (CCNA) has donated 850 Series Digital Imaging Machine to Yaba College of Technology (Yabatech) through the School of Arts, Design and Printing as part of the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative, in addition, Canon also signed partnership agreement with the College to support students in their professional development by conducting print workshop training with Canon specialists.
The partnership with Yabatech is an extension of Canon’s Miraisha Sustainability Programme; the initiative launched in late 2014, aims at building the capacity and talent of people in the African countries where Canon operates by leveraging the company’s imaging heritage, advanced technological strengths and innovations.
The programme aims to improve the knowledge of digital printing and related technical skills of 80 Nigerian students specializing in this sector. The first activity to be run under this partnership is specialist training that will last one week and will be conducted by a professional print manager from Canon. The theme of this training will be colour management and will alternate between practical and theoretical courses. It will enable students to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to understand and manage colour parameters in digital documents and printing, which will allow them to further improve the quality of printing and offer an ever more qualitative service to their future customers.
The collaboration resulted into YABATECH-CANON PRINTING ACADEMY, and was commissioned by the Chairman, Governing Council, Prince Lateef Fagbemi SAN, who was ably represented by the Rector, Engr. Obafemi Omokungbe.
In his keynote address, Omokungbe thanked Canon for the donation and disclosed that Yabatech is the first tertiary institution to establish Department of Printing in Nigeria, also the first institution to receive this special donation by Canon in the whole of West Africa.
According to him, the 850 Series Digital Imaging Machine which is the latest technology in printing will no doubt further enhance the teaching and learning of Printing Technology in the College. It will also expose our students to the current trend in the printing world thereby giving the students seamless transition from class to industry.
“On our part, we assure the Management of Canon that all your thoughts put together will be realized through this avenue. We will like to inform you that there would be proper maintenance of the machine while students and staff will not be denied access to it, we will also fulfill our own part of the memorandum of understanding (MOU) between the College and Canon.”
The Managing Director CCNA, Mr. Roman Troedthandl said, “During our collaboration with the prestigious College, Yabatech, we will provide a platform to develop the printing skills and give new opportunities to students. This will be achieved by providing them with innovative tools, practices and modern – skills necessary for proactive participation in the economy. Indeed, the training workshop will offer unparalleled prospects for graduates to broaden their horizons and take advantage of employment opportunities that support this remarkable population growth.”
The main goal of this partnership is to support students in their training and facilitate their professional integration in the industry by offering access to professional machines and a space for meetings and experience with experts. With the third-largest youth population in the world and a median age standing at about 18 years, Nigeria's development is dependent on its youth. Indeed, over 70 percent of the country’s population is under the age of 30 according to United Nations (2015). It is important that students receive the necessary training to be able to succeed and support the economic development of the country.
The Dean, of School of Arts, Design & Printing, Dr. Kunle Adeyemi added “I am very delighted that my students from the school of Arts, Design & Printing Yabatech can benefit from training provided by Canon's experts in the field of professional printing. It is an opportunity for the students to access enhanced training to develop their skills and interact with professionals who, in addition to a solid knowledge of the sector, have a clear idea of the industry needs in Nigeria. Canon is a trusted partner in the transformational growth of Africa. By investing in youth, creating tangible opportunities for career development and promoting the printing industry through innovative solutions, Canon creates a vibrant growth ecosystem in Nigeria and the Continent.”
