About SUA DSEP
Get the help you need to get ahead
SUA DSEP was born out of a need to provide opportunities for exceptional young Nigerians to access premium quality training, mentorship, and guidance that will help them master viable globally relevant skills that will set them ahead of the park.
The program is designed to bring the best out of its participants through our world-class curriculum as support from a community of experts who serve as facilitators, mentors, trainers, and advisors.
SUA DSEP is more than just a training program
SUA DSEP is a 6-month intensive onsite training, followed by 3 months of intensive with development teams to gain hands-on experience.
The program requires 10-12 hours of work each day Mondays to Fridays for 6 months and 3-4 hours every Saturday dedicated to soft skills training in the 6 month period.
Fellows get to take a combination of self-paced and in-classes sessions as they learn followed by weekly assessments to ensure that the knowledge is sufficiently absorbed with a series of other programs (including sports and other extracurricular activities) aimed at bringing the best out of the participants.
If you are looking for a real change and can commit the next 2 years to it, this is for you.
We will not deceive you by promising that you will be a world-class professional earning thousands of dollars monthly after a few months, but if you can commit 6 months to the onsite training, 3 months to the internship, and about 15 months to continue to work and continuous learning, then you are in the right place. This program was designed for you.
These and many more are the benefits DSEP Cohort 4 fellows will enjoy from the program. We are committed to ensuring that you get all the resources you need to attain success.
After running Skillup Africa Digital Skills Empowerment Program in 3 Cohorts since 2020, our plan is to make Cohort 4 the best so far, creating more landmark achievements and breaking new records. We invite you to be a part of it.
