WeThinkCode is offering an unspecified number of people an opportunity to become “world-class” software engineers.

The non-profit organisation has a vision to unlock youth potential by closing the digital skills gap in Africa.

The organisation is offering a two-year full-time software engineering course free of charge to successful applicants.

According to the organisation’s website We Think Code works within an eco-system of public and private partners to source and train world-class African digital talent; as well as provide students with a clear path to employment.

“At WeThinkCode, we think differently about education. We aim to teach our students how to learn and solve problems using coding as the tool. We want our students to leave after two years with valuable skills and abilities, not just a certificate. We also focus on providing access to real world experience through internships and a clear path to employment upon graduation. We also provide MICT SETA NQF Level 5 certifications.”
