Our Story

We started RAD5 Academy because we believe that the “traditional” model technology education is broken. Every year, young people and tech enthusiasts  take huge amount of money and invest in learning a digital skill that does not give them the desired result which are landing, starting a new career or starting a tech business

Unfortunately, most coding bootcamps have no incentive to ensure their graduates get hired or have a clear roadmap on how to use their skills to change their lives.

At RAD5 Academy, we believe there is a better way to approach technology education. Instead of asking our students to bet on us, we bet on them first. We are providing youths in Africa with affordable, accessible and useful technology education. 

We are raising talents in Africa with useful tech skills needed to build, launch, scale successful software companies and support existing businesses using digital technologies.

While starting out my tech journey, I worked with some RAD5's trainers and trainees and I was impressed by the level of knowledge and skill they brought to the project. I also love that they have a wide range of relevant courses to offer.

I'm always amazed by the level of proficiency students from the academy possess. Truly the academy exposes her students to real world problem solving, taking them true the entire dev process. What better way to create engineers.
