SUPPORTING TRANSITIONS

Powering Students' Career Readiness for the World of Work

Bridgia empowers Africa’s higher institutions to provide career support to students through access to career programs, resources, and tools with which employers can also connect with students and build talent pipelines.

MISSION-DRIVEN

We Are Committed to Making Higher Education in Africa Lead to Great Career Outcomes

According to the IMF, there will be more young Africans entering the workforce each year by 2035 than in the rest of the world combined. Higher education remains vital to equipping millions of students to thrive in the global world of work. Bridgia is making it possible to maximise this opportunity for higher education in Africa through partnership with higher institutions and employers.

What Students across Our Partner Institutions Say

“I just completed an enriching 5-module Industry Readiness Programme. The programme equipped me with valuable skills and knowledge to excel in the dynamic world of technology. I am now eagerly looking forward to putting this learnings into practice.”

“Through the personality assessment, I saw the need to work on my self-esteem and self-control the most. I learnt that to be able to thrive I’d need a combination of skills (soft, technical and digital skills), have good connections with a notable online presence…”

“The Digital Skills Assessment helped me realize that there are still a lot more skills I have to acquire and hone to be an effective digital literate. The programme also expanded on some areas in the internship journey that I did not know about but I am now aware of.”
