Developing skills for the future of work
Africa's education systems haven't caught up with rapid technological advancements and the resultant shifts in today’s nature of work. With AI, automation, and digital tools reshaping where and how we work, workers now face an urgency in skills upgrades to avoid becoming redundant.

SFAN's Quality Education Agenda
A market-aligned curriculum means students learn from industry practitioners and not individuals that never practiced what they’re teaching in real life.
The project-based learning framework allows learners to solve real business problems for real companies, not made-up case studies with zero accountability.
Personalized education helps learners access tailored materials that meet their career needs where they are and track their progress with actual data.
With the community support and job pipeline, ReadyforWork learners get tools, services, and support systems they need to turbocharge their careers.
I, personally, have been developing an external interest in working with young job-seekers in Ghana to develop their personal skills to be able to effectively ‘sell’ themselves to the job market. It is my own opinion that young people in Ghana today, especially young women, are not adequately equipped with the necessary confidence, initiative and communication skills to be able to effectively determine what they want to change in their lives and to go about using such skills to get into the workplace. I realise from looking at SFAN's website that your work is very closely linked to this."

Helping Early-career Professionals Future-proof Their Careers
Kezia Owusu is one of the beneficiaries of ReadyforWork cohort 4. Kezia realized a need to upskill and future-proof her career, so she joined the digital marketing track. At ReadyforWork, she learned how to tie her 12 years of experience in arts and media together and improve relevant digital marketing skills, giving her a promotion at her current workplace and landing a new role.
