Insendi is pleased to announce that Industry Immersion Africa (iiAfrica), a pan-African non-profit organisation (NPO) dedicated to bridging the gap between academics and industry, has chosen the insendi online platform as their official technology provider for the groundbreaking Ghana1000 Program. The program will feed into the firm’s overall aim to assist up to 1 million STEM graduates in finding meaningful employment by 2030. 


About the Ghana1000 Program


Fueled by the ambitious drive of iiAfrica and now the powerful insendi platform, the Ghana1000 Program is a fully-funded six-week intensive training program targeted at Ghanaian first-degree university graduates from diverse Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines. The program also sees iiAfrica collaborate with the Ghanaian government through the National Service Scheme (NSS) in an initiative to help equip 1,000 young people in Ghana, all due for their national service, with employable skills.

The program, which began at the beginning of October 2023, is hosted on the insendi online learning platform, where students learn the relevant skills, knowledge, and experience necessary to excel in their chosen fields. By using insendi, the initiative hopes to develop the skills needed to secure favourable employment for at least 80% of participants by the end of their 1-year mandatory ‘service to the nation’ period.


Shaping the future of online education


Trusted by many of the world’s leading educational institutions, including Imperial College Business School, European School of Management and Technology (ESMT Berlin), and now as iiAfrica’s official technology partner, insendi combines a powerful online learning platform and bespoke learning design services. On their exciting collaboration with iiAfrica on the Ghana1000 Program, insendi’s Managing Director James Connor says that:



Enhancing STEM Graduate Employability On The African Continent


In 2017, the Industry Immersion Program (IIP) started as a partnership between the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS) and the European School of Management and Technology (ESMT Berlin), with support funding from the German Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst (DAAD). Now in its sixth year running, the partnership continues its dedication to improving the employability of African STEM graduates with the Ghana1000 Program. Dr David Attipoe, Managing Director of iiAfrica, says that they are “on a mission to ensure many young graduates transition into industry.” He adds that:
