can i get a job with just soft skills?

Yes, you can. Here are some jobs you can start after taking the WFS before proceeding to our technical school.

How do we know this?

The Workplace Foundational Skills soft skills program alone can get you a job, and you will succeed because Joy, Mujib, Muinat, etc., got jobs with soft skills.

Joy’s job is also remote. So yes, the job can also be remote.

Here are some job titles our students have gotten with only soft skills.

Scroll down to see their picture at the end of this page and the things they can do after the program.

i already work, is this for me? how does it help me?

Yes, it is.

We recommend the WFS to you/everyone.

From our experience, over 80% of those on our WFS batch one and two are professionals already with years of experience and a job.

They did not realize the soft skills they lacked that could improve their efficiency at work until they joined the WFS.

They named the program the remote workers program.

If you are looking for a program that will give you transferable skills regardless of job role or field, our bestseller WFS is the way to go.

You can view the WFS curriculum below.

See what happened to Blessing in week 3 of the program. 

Blessing had initially reached out to say she knew she was rusty and lacked something on her job but did not know what it was. 

Is this for me?

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

You will need this as an

  • Entrepreneur
  • Working professional who has not upskilled
  • Artisan
  • Fresh graduate pursuing a career in the industry
  • Fresh graduate pursuing a career in academics

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

This is why we call it the 

WORKPLACE FOUNDATIONAL SKILLS PROGRAM

why do you need this? why do you need soft skills?

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

5:30:30:35

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., website development, digital marketing)
  • 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. 

THE SOFT SKILLS YOU NEED ARE NOT TAUGHT IN THE UNIVERSITY, NOR DOES YOUR EMPLOYER HAVE THE PATIENCE TO TEACH YOU. 

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. 

The WORKPLACE FOUNDATIONAL SKILLS PROGRAM IS ONE OF ITS KIND. 

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 the Harvard statistics below. 

what is my investment fee?

₦ 37,625 or $40 or GHS 582

How Does This Work?

Lessons are pre-recorded videos that you can watch at any time of the day.

With 1 hour daily, you will be able to learn and implement.

Only the workshops are live four times in 6 weeks at 3-5 pm (WAT). 

See the dates of the live workshops in the image for the current batch and the next.

What Platforms Are Used For The Learning?

4 major platforms, and they are all free to use. They are cloud-based platforms.

1) Our learning management system, i.e. website www.itrainafrica.com/courses—This is where our online course with the video lessons you will watch is hosted. The learning is already recorded, so you do not have to worry about missing classes.

2) Google Classroom – This is where you will submit an assignment

3) Telegram and WhatsApp—We use these to make announcements and offer support. Students also interact here.

4) Zoom/YouTube – This is where we host live workshops

is there support on this program? how does it work?

We have 4 levels of support.

Tech Support – Telegram

Peer-to-peer support – Telegram

Career clarity support – Zoom and WhatsApp

Accountability partner peering

 

The telegram, where we have four subgroups (interaction, wins & celebrations, tech support and announcements).

You can ask any tech-related questions on the Tech support group, such as the inability to log in to your online course or Google Classroom.

The wins group is to celebrate your results and process.

The interaction group offers you peer-to-peer support

The announcement channels ensure you never miss a news update

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. 

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.

1) COURSE WORK

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.

2) PROJECTS

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.

3) QUIZ

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.

4) SUPPORT COMMUNITY

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

5) LIVE SESSIONS

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.

6) INTERNSHIP

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

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.
