Jointly with Huawei (UK), Henley Business School’s Huawei ICT Academy (HICTA) hosted a virtual event for more than 60 students last month, to help them learn more about Huawei and the digital skills training course offered by HICTA.

Professor Kecheng Liu, Professor of Applied Informatics and the Director of the Huawei ICT Academy at Henley, welcomed students and expressed appreciation to colleagues from Huawei for their valuable input towards the event.

Guest speakers from Huawei (UK), including Mr Andrew Vo, Dr Wenbing Yao, Mr Zhidong Wang, Ms Pallavi Malhorta and Mr Alex Farbon, delivered a series of presentations covering topics such as ‘Huawei’s 2030 Vision’ and ‘Huawei Talent Ecosystem Development’. The presentations gave the students a clear insight into Huawei’s position as a leading company in developing advanced ICT technologies and cultivating young talents for the industry.

Mr Zhidong Wang, Director for Partner Development & Management at Huawei UK, said:

"To combat the current challenges brought by shortage of ICT talents, Huawei as a leading ICT solution provider launched the Huawei ICT Academy in 2012, a school-enterprise cooperation that will help build the new generation of a talent ecosystem."

As we rapidly progress into the digital era, the demand for more digitally skilled individuals rise. At the event, Mr. Alex Farbon, Talent Acquisition Lead at Huawei (UK), introduced several Huawei working opportunities suitable for graduates and provided some application tips to students.

At the end of the event, Dr Qi Li, Business Development Manager of the Huawei ICT Academy at Henley, introduced the Huawei certification programme and encouraged students to put what they have learned into practice.

The students thoroughly enjoyed their informative tour of Huawei and the Huawei ICT Academy hopes to host more events like this in the future.
