How It works

Duration:  Each of the courses run for a total period of 3 months starting with 6 weeks for In-class training where participants attend a 3 hour class twice a week for 6 weeks. This is followed by the online section where participants get additional training from all facilitators via our online portal for 6 weeks . This period feature more of practical projects, idea sharing and group discussion among all participants from all the centres.

Schedule: For the In-class sessions, weekday classes hold Mondays/Wednesdays or Tusedays/Thursdays 11am to 2pm each day while weekend classes hold Fridays/Saturdays  3pm to 6pm on Friday and 11am to 2pm on Saturday. For particular centres, there may be slight adjustments in the time schedules to the convenience of the participants.

Requirements: For all the centres except the Epe centre, participants are required to come with their computers or at least have a personal computer they work with as classes will be 100% proactical and intensive. It will be impossible to make anything good off the course if participants don’t have sufficient acces to computers.

Certification: Certificates will be offered only to participants who satisfactorily complete the course they registered for. Certificates issues are equivalent to a Diploma and are awarded only on merit basis.

Cost: Thanks to our partners, some level of support have been recieved for Skill Up Africa Cohort 2 (We still look forward to more sponsorship). We offer each of the courses at 70% off the actual training cost. Unlike the first cohort (whic was offered at no cost), participants will be required to make payment for a commitment fee (which is actually 30% of the original cost) for each of the course.
