Kedrus Academy to train 20,000 professionals in data, AI skills

Kedrus Academy, a provider of tech education and training, has announced a strategic initiative to train 20,000 professionals and young adults in these critical areas by the year 2030.

The program comes in response to statistics that reveal a significant digital skills gap in Nigeria. With 85 percent of graduates lacking digital skills and projections indicating that 45 percent of jobs by 2030 will require digital proficiency, Kedrus Academy is stepping up to equip the workforce with the necessary tools to thrive in the digital age.

“Through the ‘Learn Now, Pay Later’ model, Kedrus Academy and Finquest Finance aim to eliminate financial barriers and empower individuals to launch successful careers in tech,” stated Stella Justin, co-founder of Kedrus Academy. “This partnership also supports our mission of training 20,000 professionals and young adults by 2030.”

Recognising the financial constraints that can limit access to quality education, Kedrus Academy has established a strategic partnership with Finquest Finance.

Finquest, a Nigerian lending platform focused on education and capacity development, will offer zero-interest loans to professionals, young Nigerians, and low-income individuals throughout the country. These loans will help cover tuition costs and enable individuals to pursue data and AI skill development.

“This initiative by Kedrus Academy demonstrates a commitment to bridging the digital skills gap in Nigeria. By offering accessible and affordable training programs, Kedrus Academy empowers individuals to participate in the growing tech sector and build sustainable careers,” a statement from the company said.
