We are looking for mentors in Life and Technical Skills to grow the next generation of African innovators
Each year, about 1 million African graduates enter the job market without the prospect of viable employment. Yet, millions of IT and engineering jobs remain unfilled. At EDACY, we are bridging the job-skills gap created by an insufficient education system. We challenge the status-quo by combining Massive Open Online Course (MOOCs) with the Swiss dual-education model to accelerate skills in engineering and information technology. A unique program where top universities and employers work together to produce skilled, employable innovative talents that are automatically absorbed into the workplace or supported to launch their venture.
