The partnership aims to help address the challenges that African migrants face in accessing education and job opportunities in the tech industry.
“We are thrilled to be playing a vital role in impacting the lives of young Africans here in Europe. Upskilling serves as a life-changing factor and we’re delighted to partner with High Impact Careers to help open up opportunities for the cohort of learners into the world of tech,” says Marius Nedelcu, CMO at TransferGo.
As part of their joint efforts, High Impact Careers and TransferGo plan to sponsor African youths looking to gain tech skills through a 10-week tech bootcamp. The bootcamp will cover essential skills such as web development, project management, data analysis, cybersecurity, and soft skills needed to thrive in the tech industry.
The 10-week bootcamp will provide a comprehensive and hands-on learning experience for participants, enabling them to develop the skills that are in high demand in the tech industry. Moreover, the program will provide participants with access to mentors and industry experts, who will offer guidance and support as they navigate their career paths.
The partnership between High Impact Careers and TransferGo is a significant step towards promoting diversity and inclusion in the tech industry. It recognizes the potential of African migrants and aims to provide them with the tools and resources they need to succeed in the tech space.
“Our mission is to build a pipeline of tech and non-tech talents—which includes transferring tech skillsets to individuals who can not only benefit personally, but who can go on to disrupt the tech space. Our partnership with TransferGo has helped us reach more of those individuals and the ripple effect of that impact is as infinite as time itself,” says Seun Adedeji, the COO of High Impact Careers.
The bootcamp is an excellent opportunity for African youths to gain valuable skills and knowledge, which will enable them to build successful careers in tech. Ultimately, the partnership is a testament to the power of collaboration and investment in education and career development for Africans.
