3 Pillars

To achieve our mission we emphasize three operational pillars that form the foundation of our work.

Increase Digital Skill Capacity

We offer world-class online learning to train students and help them gain the skills they need to succeed in the job market. Content experts for each training niche and robust peer-to-peer mentoring ecosystem ensure that students receive personalized guidance and support throughout their journey.

Connect Talent to Markets

Skep connects skilled African talent to a consortium of employers and global job platforms. We simplify the onboarding and HR compliance process to mitigate the risks of hiring international talent. Access to remote workstations and a network of community-based coworking tech centers ensure a productive remote workforce.
