Each course takes place over a period of 10 months which is divided up into a three-month technical bootcamp, a month of leadership and innovation training and six months of immersive learning in some of country’s leading digital corporations.

To qualify for the program, you must fit the following criteria:

  • be between the ages of 18 and 35
  • reside in Gauteng
  • have a Matric with maths and science among your subjects or a diploma in any IT-related field
  • have basic digital knowledge

Applications close on July 3rd and must be submitted on the COJEDI website. You’ll need upload a copy of your CV, ID, matric or tertiary qualification certificate and proof of residence.
