Where great app ideas come to life.


The AppFactory – or Apprenticeship Factory – for developers is 4Afrika’s employability and capacity building programme. It develops the digital skills, coding capabilities and workplace readiness of young graduates. Apprentice developers spend up to six months working with senior software technicians and develop essential workplace skills and the ability to design and implement modern software solutions.

After graduating from the programme, apprentices have priority access to jobs through the Microsoft Partner Network.

There are currently 16 AppFactory academies in operation in countries across Africa, including Nigeria, Ghana, South Africa, Egypt, Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda, Mauritius, Malawi and Ethiopia. In 2017, 500 apprentices graduated from the AppFactories, with 85% of them securing full-time employment within three months of graduating.
