Adewale Yusuf, Opeyemi Awoyemi, and Akintunde Sultan founded TalentQL late last year to hire, develop, and manage remote talent for global enterprises.
The startup is creating a pipeline of high-quality talent for African enterprises while also sourcing and managing top local talent for prominent multinational firms. Its business approach entails establishing talent campuses in less-populated African cities near top university schools. This talent network presently includes 3,000 approved individuals.
In November, TalentQL raised US$300,000 in investment, and it just added US$120,000 to that after being selected to participate in Techstars Toronto. It has now launched AltSchool Africa, which is built on a complete curriculum that teaches the skills needed to work as a competent software engineer without the rigors of a standard four-year bachelor degree program.
Students can use a flexible study plan to finish all of the programs while maintaining their current job and personal obligations. The curriculum is available to individuals with no prior knowledge or expertise in software engineering and is designed to be beginner-friendly for students.
Because it does not charge tuition up advance, AltSchool Africa is also a platform beyond boundaries. This implies that students will only pay once their diploma program is completed and they have found work. The one-year curriculum also includes a three-month internship, which will allow students to use their newly gained software engineering abilities in a real environment.
“We are very excited to be introducing AltSchool Africa to the continent. Our mission at TalentQL has always been to decentralise and democratise opportunities for African Talents, and this is just another way we are fulfilling that mission. We are empowering individuals interested in a career in tech with a solid foundation that will enable them to gain access to a truly global spectrum of tech jobs thereby and competitive salaries,” said Yusuf.
