How it ALL STARTED

Skillup Africa was born out of the passion to raise skilled individuals you will in turn raise others and the cycle continues.

In 2016, after having series of bad experiences with developers, our parent company, Euidem Technologies, decided to recruit interns willing to learn software development, train them and employ them.
After several screenings, 5 individuals were selected, each of them were trained in different aspects of web development, graphics design, business development and one year down the line, they were doing amazingly well in their chosen fields. The company then decided to try this with another set and the result was also great. 

The success of the first two sets led to the creation of a better structured graduate training program, based on the learnings in the past years. And Skillup Africa was born!!!

UBUNTU - "I am because we are"

Our approach to Skillup Africa is to create a platform for knowledge sharing between those who know and those who need to know while also connecting those who want to work to those who need them. 

We look forward to a time when SUA will become an “Open source” institute without a definite owner but all of us. Built by Africans for Africans and the world at large
Skillup Africa seeks to give an opportunity to exceptionally talented individuals who ordinarily may not be able to afford such opportunity.

For the third cohort of Skillup Africa, a maximum of 30 individuals will be admitted into the program in 3 different tracks.

 Selection is made based on the applicant’s ability to scale the application process. 

Being able to afford the training does not in anyway place you ahead of those who are more willing and able to participate. Participants who successfully complete the training program get job offers from our recruitment partners and an opportunity to build their careers in their chosen fields.
