Dear Graduates, Professionals and Youth, Employability Is The Goal, Not Certification! 

Employers Have Since Moved On!

Employability = Good Job = Income$£¢€ and Flexible Work  = Better Life
Certificate (BSc, PGD, MBA, MSc., PhD, Certification Courses) = Knowledge Does Not = Employability 

I know education, scratch that, I meant ‘SCHOOLING’ was sold to you as the ultimate, the same way it was sold to Muinat.


Muinat has a B.Sc and graduated in 2019 with a 2nd-class. She used two years to carry her CERTIFICATE about looking for that “global job” the world promised her she would find when she was done with school!

Read Muinat’s full story as you scroll down this page.


Just last week, I got a call from Eunice, a recent graduate waiting to be posted for NYSC, who asked me if she could get a Job before serving. She was excited about finishing school, given I knew her from way back and was instrumental in helping her gain admission. 

She said, “I have finished school; I am now a graduate. I am searching for a Job, do you have one for me? 

Guess what I told her? I don’t care about the certificate or grade you finished with. What skills do you have? 


We invited her for an interview. At the interview, we asked Eunice to create content and examine the Miro board to determine whether she could navigate the collaborative software needed for remote work. 

Eunice created content that did not align with the scenario question presented to her. Later, she asked, “How will I navigate this board, and how will I use this as a content creator?”

All these workplace and digital skills were NOT taught in my four years in school.






Where do I learn?


Who is teaching graduates and professionals all these Workplace Skills and Tools?


  • Are you a graduate who has realized that schooling and education are not the same and that you can’t get a choice of job because you lack the experience and skills to work in the 21st-century workforce? No one is giving you the chance to work/intern/ volunteer for them to gain the skills and clarity you lack.
  • Are you a youth (15 upward) who is literate and wants to get a chance to work in a tech-savvy work environment so you can gain skills you can use to earn in the next six months?
  • Are you a woman who wants to integrate back into the workforce after a break, but your previous job did not prepare you for the current demand of the 21st-century workforce?
  • Are you a woman who wants to change her career path to the tech space to have skills you can use to serve as a virtual assistant to digital creators or start a virtual assistant brand/career but has not found the right place to learn all aspects of this profession?
  • Are you an undergraduate with several months on your hands due to holiday, strike, or waiting on IT and the only skills you see people gain are vocational skills (hairdressing, fashion, etc), but you know this is not what you want? Do you want to achieve a TRANSFERABLE SKILLSET that can serve you in any Tech-enabled organization, whether in your country or globally?
  • Are you a person seeking clarity and mentorship from a global citizen who has worked at the Museum for the United Nations and understands what it takes to work globally remotely and the skillset required for such roles?

I-Train Africa Skilled For Work Academy

What Exactly Is This School About?


Skilled For Work is a finishing school for literate youths and women starting their careers or transitioning and hoping to gain 21st-century, in-demand workplace skills to become globally employable.

First Let’s Meet Sandra & Muinat

Meet Sandra Sampor, who signed up in 2023 for our skills program despite having a BSc., work experience in marketing and a recent MBA


I quit my sales executive job when I had my baby because I could not cope with the distance to work. When I was ready to return to work two years later, integrating back into the workplace was challenging. Everything had changed so fast. A lot of the sales and marketing strategies have moved from the traditional to the tech strategies. More than half the time, I WAS CONFUSED. IT FELT LIKE I WAS “WINGING” it. I was beginning to lose confidence in myself. I wasn’t sure if what I was doing was right most of the time.

Then I said to myself, ‘I think I need another certificate,’ so I went ahead and got another one: an MBA. Did I gain knowledge from this 2nd degree? Yes! Of Course, I did! However, I still lacked the confidence to function well at work.

It dawned on me that I do not have the skills required in the 21st-century workplace. The people teaching these skills are not the lecturers in the four walls of a University but people in tech-powered organizations (EdTech, Fintech, AgricTech, HealthTech, etc.).

Hmmm!! I told myself, “Sandra” you need these skills as much as you need the certificate or maybe even before that 2nd degree.

😭Hey! The deed had been done; I was to round up my 2nd degree. Skills are taking over the workspace; it is no longer about your certificate but what you can do. Employers are looking for people with highly efficient and productive skills.

Oh! How it took me a while to know this truth.

I knew immediately I had to find a tech-powered organization to Learn, intern, or work. I knew I needed a combination of the three, i.e., to be in a space where these skills were being used for work, not just taught as a course.

After being there for a couple of months and implementing my learnings, I needed a place where I would see how those learnings directly impacted the organization’s revenues and growth.

God was faithful because he led me to the I-Train Africa skills program” – Sandra Sampor.

Muinat; The graduate who thought her BSc was enough!

“Let me start with what I thought was my A-Game.

My BSc Degree

I  studied General Microbiology at the University of Lagos and served my fatherland in Kastina State Bakori Local Government in 2020/2021.

Like most people without clarity on their career path, I wanted to work in the medical sector. I felt my certificate as a microbiologist and less than three months of laboratory experience during SIWES should earn me a job in a lab or hospital. This thought could be from the orientation we were given in school to console us because we could not meet the cutoff mark to study Medicine.

Let me elaborate on this further for non-science students.

I initially opted for Medicine but was pushed to the science faculty to study microbiology as I did not meet the cutoff mark for Medicine.

Alas, it dawned on me when I saw the requirements for related jobs. These adverts said I can’t work in the medical field without a license. Meaning I need to be a medical student. 

Okay, I gave up on the medical line and applied for other jobs I could do. Then, I realized I lacked the necessary skills to work in an established organization. At least, a 21st-century one.

Skills like effective communication, self-confidence, and digital knowledge. 

Right from the interview, I couldn’t summon the courage to market myself. Now, I understand there is still more to learn. 

I approached my mentor (Dr. Salisu) and told her about my challenges. She told me she has a friend who can help me clarify my career and teach me skills needed in the 21st-century workforce.  

This is how I started to learn with THE KING OF CLARITYTHE KNOWLEDGE DISTILLER of our time.


I can proudly testify to her ability to help people gain clarity,  find purpose and acquire relevant skills that will set them up for excellence in life.

I will always bless that moment my mentor referred me to her.

Guess what?

This is me right now as the communication lead.

Some months ago, I could not even face these. Like being the Communication lead 

serving as the spokesman of the organization

creating and managing content 

managing social media,

writing newsletters 

All these soft skills and more were acquired in I-Train Africa, and now I have the skills that can earn me $ 

I, Muinat, can tell you that the value you get compared to the four years spent acquiring a degree CANNOT be COMPARED. 

I would know that because I experienced BOTH.

I would repeat this if time were reversed” — Muinat Rasaq – Relationship Manager – I-Train Africa.

Who Is Skilled For Work Academy Program For?

7 Categories Of People Attend Skilled For Work Academy Programs

  • A woman, man, youth, or professional wants to work remotely but does not know what skills to acquire to get started.
  • Working professional who has not upskilled and needs to become a star employee or transition careers. 
  • Fresh graduate pursuing a career in the industry or academia
  • Graduate pursuing a career in the Gig economy Aka wants to become a freelance on Upwork, Fivver and the likes 
  • An entrepreneur needs digital skills to digitalize, automate and structure their business. 
  • A student or undergraduate who needs to learn transferable skills during their gap year or holiday that will be useful for them in any field of study.
  • The artisan who is literate and wants to digitalize his services.  

Yes, it is if you want to have the digital, soft, and life skills no one talks about, but you also need to be efficient in the 21st-century work environment.

You will need it, especially when you do not know the essential skills, software and tools!

This is why we call it the 


why do you need this? why do you need the soft skills we cover on WFS?

I know you have gone to school.

Here is the thing.

YOUR ACADEMIC QUALIFICATION IS ONLY 5% of what employers are looking for in the emerging job market. 

The formula of what you need to get jobs is


Here is what it means.

  • 5% educational degree,
  • 30% soft skills (what we covered in the workplace foundational skills program at the Skilled For Work Academy)
  • 30 % hard/technical skills (e.g., product management, digital marketing, project, etc which we offer in our technical school)
  • 35% experience (work or volunteering).

Score yourself in the above; what is your score?

If you can’t score 70% of the above, then YOU NEED THIS!

I know you can get technical skills like coding, digital marketing, data analysis, product management, cybersecurity, etc. elsewhere. 

But that is also 30% of what you need. 


What is worse?

That YouTube video you have watched also doesn’t have it. 

That other course you are about to buy or MSC you are about to get Doesn’t Have it. 


You will not find this curriculum elsewhere. 

Should you find it, it would be 10 times the money we are charging you now

one more thing. check this havard statistics below

how does this work?




Are you asking

What is the difference between the schools ?

Which should I enrol in to get a job?


You should enrol right now on the WORKPLACE FOUNDATIONAL SKILLS PROGRAM, which is the ONE UNIVERSAL PROGRAM in the soft skills school if you want to BE EMPLOYABLE IN ANY FIELD 

The image above is Ganiat, an MSC from the University of Lagos entrepreneur who joined SFW to gain workplace skills to transition her career path and digitalize her business. Picture taken on the first day of resumption. Fun Fact. Ganiat is now the Program Coordinator at ITA Foundation based on the skills she learned and practicalized during her six months immersion model program with us.

I will let YOU be the judge. 

Read the conversations from Africans from 9 plus countries and 4 other continents

“I remember meeting Temtayo in a Jamb lesson, and just as we were about to finish the lesson, I asked him what he would do for the next couple of months, given ASUU was on strike. He said he would learn tech skills, etc., at I-Train Africa. I was like. Were? He told his cousin he owned it. I had to pitch my tent to him quickly. I was not going to miss this chance. After sending Dr Aderinsola a message, she asked me to come for an interview. She was very thorough and had the attitude she expected from me. In 5 months, I can now set up and manage landing pages, funnels, and automation on websites/learning management systems ( MS). I have learned essential skills such as research, communication and other soft skills. What I will say still amazes me is that she combines teaching with mentor hip. She identifies every apprentice’s strength and helps you build it to find a niche. 

After three months, she called me and said Joy, you are now an intern, and you start to earn some allowance for the value you currently bring to the team. I was so happy. She recognised my strength and the value it was now getting to the team, not just for the allowance. 

The truth is, I no longer identify with my mates who are continuously complaining about ASUU still being on. I have forgotten about it because my time is utilised to gain skills that will prepare me for it. I am glad I took this decision in May 2022. One of my best decisions yet as a teenager”. — Joy-

what about the technical school?

There are 3 programs we offer in our TECHNICAL SCHOOL.

They are NO-CODE Tech Careers. 

You can choose from any of the three or even take two simultaneously!

All 3 career paths are highly demanded, and if you learn them, YOU will EARN THOUSANDS of dollars in USD!

You have a choice. 

The starter’s favourite (FLEX) or the recommended (PRO)!

Global Career Path model - FLEX

what if i want just the technical skill without the soft skills program (WFS)?

Remember, hard/technical skills without workplace skills are why many employers will not choose you even if you have the title “Project Manager”, or “Digital Marketer” Content Creator”, etc. 

No one wants to hire a person with hard skills and NO WORKPLACE FOUNDATIONAL SKILLS. 

Trust me on this one.


Yes. Remotely at the Museum for the United Nations and the Natural History Museum of London. 

I would know WHAT IS REQUIRED. 


I have been an EMPLOYER OF LABOUR for 13 years!

What Will I Be Able To Do If I Take The Workplace Foundational Model Program (WFS) For starters?

You’re wondering how it will help you get that job.

You are wondering how this program can turn you into an attractive professional or freelancer whom employers want on their team

Here is it:

Do you have an ONSITE model?

I need the complete knowledge to build an EdTech organization like I-Train Africa.

I need a program where I can be physically present to learn several tasks so that I can play multiple roles.

Is there a program that teaches multiple career paths all in one?

Yes, there is!

We have 2 programs that are either FULLY ONSITE (for an entire 6 months) or PARTIALLY ONSITE (for 1 month during job shadowing)

Our Immersion Digital Enterprise Onsite Program is entirely ONSITE and offers 4-5 different In-Demand Work Tracks and MORE as one program and it spans 6 months.

It is ideal for a woman or man with a career break and can spare 6 months in immersive learning to get beyond skills and also get strategies in running an Edtech.


Let’s take a look!

The Immersion Digital Enterprise Onsite Program (IDEP) teaches you all you need to build a tech-powered enterprise or become skilled in 4-5  job roles/career paths.

Our Transition Workers Hybrid Program (TWHP) is 4-5 months of online learning with 3-4 weeks of on-site job shadowing. It offers 2 different In-Demand Work Tracks and MORE as one program.

It is ideal for a professional working who wants to be able to learn online and come experience and practiclaize his or her learning in our workspace.

Let’s take a look!

Why Choose Our Employability Academy?

  • DO AS I DO PROGRAMS: All trainings are hands-on—enough of theory. You already did that in school and still lack employability skills. Should we have a social media project requiring images, we give it to you. We teach you the design software needed to execute the task. No pilling up of learning till exam time.
  • GLOBAL OPPORTUNITIES: Given my experience working globally and remotely twice, one of which was as a global program coordinator at the Museum for the United Nations, and my several years of teaching 300+ professionals from 10+ countries how to secure opportunities such as jobs, no one is better to teach you about getting employed globally than me, Dr. Aderinsola Adio-Adepoju. In some tracks of this program, we teach you how to search for global jobs.
  • FACILITATORS ARE PROFESSIONALS: Skilled For Work is not a theory-focused school. You learn directly from professionals or founders who have done it/are doing it, and you also carry out projects while on the program.
  • WORK PLACEMENT: At the end of the program, you have a job placement internship with our partner hubs to try out what you have learned. This applies to the PRO and Immersion models.
  • OUR CURRICULUM: We continuously review our curriculum to stay ahead of trends and what is obtainable in the market. One of the known problems of the conventional tertiary institution is an outdated curriculum, and we are NOT going that route.
  • CERTIFICATION: At the end of the program, you will be issued a certificate stating you are experienced and have worked in a real-life work environment. This helps a potential employer believe in you and increases your chances over others in the job market.
  • LETTER OF RECOMMENDATION TO EMPLOYERS: If you take the GCP PRO model, which includes an internship, our partners with whom you interned will give you a recommendation letter. You can present this to employers.
  • ALUMNI JOB OPPORTUNITIES COMMUNITY: At the end of the program, we add you as a BONUS to our alumni community, where various global opportunities are shared and networking occurs.

Have We Even Met?

Hello, I’m Dr Aderinsola Adio-Adepoju; I have helped professionals and youths secure over $700,000, won/attracted (personal) 35+ global opportunities worth over $35,000 that took me to 5 continents, and shaped lives for living.

African youths are my passion, and my mission is to help 10 million of them become skilled, become relevant to the 21st-century workforce, and arrive at the global stage by 2030.

In 2021 and 2023, I organized the most extensive online youth conference for African youths and women. The 2021 & 2023 editions reached over 2.6 million people. The 2021 event saw participation from 40+ African countries, with 14,000+ registered attendees and 35 speakers from 25+ nations. In 2023, the GMC had 41 speakers and 24,000 registered participants from 54 countries.

I am an academic with a BSc, MSc, and PhD in Chemistry and a university teacher. I have been an entrepreneur for the last 14 years. I have a mini MBA from the International Finance Corporation (IFC) 

In 2022-2023

As the Design Lead, I worked remotely internationally with the Natural History Museum of London (NHM).

I also served as the Global Project Coordinator at the Museum For the 🇺🇳 United Nations (U.N. Live).

I have been featured in local and international press and media, such as the Voice of Canada, US InStyle Magazine, Women Radio, Tekedia, TVC, Punch Newspaper, and many others. I have several awards and am happily married and blessed with children.

Why Did I Start This - AKA The Brand Story?

The worst headache in my business is getting employable youth. I kid you not; only people employed in labour will understand my pain point.

My first challenge when  I started I-Train Africa was putting out a job advert. The conventional  JOB TITLE does not reflect what the job needs.

Why is this?

The EDTECH (Online educational teaching space) is new, and COVID-19 accelerated in 2020. This means there are no readily available people for employment. The knowledge is not what you get in conventional schools; the business needs people to run it. 

So, how do I get the right people to employ?

I was initially recruited from Admin Assistant to Personal Assistant to Executive Assistant. Though several people have applied for these jobs, none suit what I want.

The only option left is for me to train them to be able to work for me and other digital knowledge businesses. However, at I-Train Africa, I needed them immediately.

Guess what?

It was so hard, so I had to look within to get someone to shadow me.

Good enough. One of them was my cousin, who practically lived with me, so it was easy for him to understudy me quickly.

Behold,  this model started to work. He could learn everything and be helpful to me in less than six months.

He started as a so-called volunteer, but now I understand he was my apprentice because he was shadowing me, and we drove I-Train Africa together.


Well, I still kept trying to recruit to scale up, but to be honest with you, it all failed. Most of the people who came lacked the skills I needed in my organization. 

So, I discovered that I did most of the work even if I employed people. While I trained them, they got paid for the work.

The problem was not paying them. The problem was that I still lacked the staff to do the work and ensure we both gained from this relationship.

But Alas, I mostly lost. Because they get trained and then go. So, I’m back to square one—no staff to scale my business.


After three months or five months, they are out. Then I realized that people were coming for the training on how to run an Edtech, not necessarily the work.

So, here is what I needed to do. I went back to look at my GOLD MINE, the CURRICULUM I was using to train them to learn so fast and make them employable in an Edtech space, start their own thing, or become digital professionals.

This was how I started to refine and perfect my curriculum. I used it for different kinds of people ranging from graduates to women who need the skills to be employable (Physically or virtually) to jambite waiting for admission.


Finally, I knew I had perfected my curriculum based on the people who had studied it since January 2021.

The graduates and corp members I had to go through this program have been converted to entire staff within 3-6 months. 

Of course, I have several people in my network, like coaches, who run an organization and need readymade staff like mine.

Many who are ready to pay reached out to me for staff. They asked if I have readymade interns that they can employ and are prepared to pay.

 But I tell them I don’t have excess staff yet and that they can start training people like I do.

Trust me, everyone knows it’s challenging to train people to achieve that sense, clarity, skill and general work ethic. They always respond, “I’m ready to pay them this amount”. Trust me; it is above 6-figure that they are willing to pay the skilled intern, plus they are ready to pay me for employment from my hub.

I told them when I finally have trained people that I don’t need in my organization. I will let them know. 

Okay, just so you know, many people in my network are waiting for those types of skilled staff.  

Now, I’m taking on the heavy weight of two sets of people: the employers who need skilled employees and the people who need this knowledge to be employable or to start their own businesses.

If you fall into any of these categories, tell yourself  CONGRATULATIONS, Because


What Is The Process Of Learning In Sfw?

How you learn or deliver your learning plays a significant role in how quickly you absorb the knowledge, how quickly you can implement it, and how quickly you get that desired job.

Here is our six-step approach.


The online school’s lessons are taken in modules. Each lesson is 5-20 minutes long. Each course has 5-10 modules, with an average of 5 classes per module. Yes, we like to keep it simple.



Projects/assignments are taken after each module. Depending on what you learned in the lesson, we give you a short practical project to practice with.


Quizzes will be taken at intervals during the modules to ensure you understand what you are learning. No, we don’t want that exam kind of mindset here; after all, we are more concerned about your ability to use the skills on the job, not a paper saying you can do it.


You will be in a support community with other learners and an advisor who will provide support and answer your questions.


Live group interactive learning sessions. We will hold bimonthly group sessions where you can go into breakout rooms to work collaboratively with other group members. This will foster an agile work culture where you need to work remotely. You will have 1-8 (depending on your model) Zoom classes before the end of the coursework, where you work with teams or in groups on projects.


Depending on the model you sign up for (PRO and IMMERSION), you will be assigned to a partner organization to intern.

Here are what people have to say about us on google and social media.

I Lack Clarity On Where To Start Or Which Program To Start With At Your Academy; What Is Your Advice?

The WFS is what we advise. The first module helps you achieve CLARITY and know which skills to acquire and which career path to choose. You need them, especially when you lack clarity or do not know the key skills ( soft, digital, tech, life, hard ), software, and tools the 21st-century digitalized workforce demands.

It does not matter what field you are in; you need our one-of-a-kind WFS program, which is the foundation (especially for anyone looking to work remotely (now or later) and globally).

I believe in first helping people get clarity


No matter how fast you race in the wrong direction, you can never arrive at the right destination” – Aderinsola Adio-Adepoju.

The program covers CLARITY, which is why Ifeoluwa mentioned it in the testimonial she sent to the Telegram community after taking the WFS. 

Read from Ifeoluwa Johnson

Why Should I Listen To Your Recommendation?

There are many skill-acquisition schools, both online and offline. But they only teach the technical skills, not the soft skills, you need to get the job or succeed on the job.

That is why the Workplace Foundational Skills Program is different.

You not only learn the Workplace Foundational Skills, but you also get the digital, tech and life skills that every global employer desires. 



Is there a certificate?

Yes, our LMS automatically issues you a certificate of completion once you are done
