Learning Path

Whether you are looking to continue your education, transition into a career in tech or simply boost your career path, we offer certifications across three tracks in Software Programming.

At the initial stage, students who are enrolled in AltSchool Africa will spend some time exploring their interests in software engineering by learning through a unified curriculum before eventually landing on an area of focus. When this happens, learning becomes much more specialised to the selected certification track.
