APO Group – Africa Newsroom / Press release | Trace and the Mastercard Foundation launch Free Learning App to Reach 26 Million Young Africans

Earlier today, Trace and the Mastercard Foundation launched Trace Academia (TraceAcademia.com) , a free-to-use, interactive, mobile-based learning application that aims to enable 26 million young Africans to acquire on-demand, market-relevant skills. Trace Academia is available on Android and iOS and has already been successfully tested in 4 African countries. Users can access courses in one of two languages: English and French. Portuguese courses will soon be launched. The learning content will include technical courses relevant to 15 different industries— including courses in energy, beauty, fashion, DIY, digital marketing, hospitality, the creative arts, journalism, film, and technology—as well courses that are more broadly relevant, such as entrepreneurship, public speaking, and personal wellness. Each course featured on the application has been designed in collaboration with an industry leading organization to ensure its relevance to employers and the job market.
