The Story of AltSchool Africa

An educational program designed to arm you with the skills and knowledge required to launch your tech career.

About us

While running TalentQL, we realised that there was a huge knowledge gap with some of the software engineers who passed through our vetting process, when it came to understanding basic things about software engineering.

A lot of them were self-taught and while they had gone on to gain good technical skills, some foundational knowledge was missing.

So, we decided to make things easier by creating a school that is not fully a school. An alternative to school. Here you can, in under a year, learn and gain a certification in a myriad of disciplines to give you a great foundation as well as the start you need to go for your dream tech career.

Our Mission is to help you get started on the career you want. Whether you are fresh out of high school, seeking extra education, or want to transition to a career in tech, We will give you the skills and insight to achieve the success you desire.
