Sonatel Academy is a coding school created in partnership with Simplon.co in 2017. With the support of Orange, Sonatel reaffirms its commitment to assume its responsibility as a key player in Senegal’s digital ecosystem. This school aims to train in priority young people, job seekers, and women.
Sonatel Academy proposes trainings in web development which take place over 7 months; 6 months in school and a one-month internship. It’s a free vocational training which targets young people without employment, as well as women, who are underepresented in the digital sector.
This training is intended to enable young Senegalese to integrate into the local job market and/or to create their own start-up/activity in the digital sector.
