How the program will run

Once the tech-talents successful get admitted into the course in Ghana, they will be given access to Impact Hub Accra’s co-working space with other peers in their cohort to help take their classes remotely.

The Full-Stack Software Engineering Curriculum covers both Back-End and Front-End programming technologies so learners can become a full-stack developer, officials of Moringa School said.

The first intake begins on March 9, 2022 and applications are still open until end of February, officials in charge of the project said at an official launch event in Accra.
