Integrate Zone01

The steps to integrate Zone01 Dakar and the components of the course:

1. Online cognition tests, memory and logic games. No development experience or IT skills are required to join the program and pass these 1:30 online selection tests. They make it possible to measure the cognitive abilities, creativity and motivation of candidates and to identify profiles with high potential that could not be recognized by traditional education systems.

2. The swimming pool

Candidates preselected via online testing go to the Dakar campus where they then immerse themselves in the heart of the 01Edu pedagogy for 4 weeks without classes or teachers, based on peer-to-peer learning and group project resolution. The pool is the final step in the selection process.

3. Training: 18 months training + 12 months part-time to train future talents.

This skills acceleration program enables learners in the first 18 months to work in teams on projects lasting 1 to 12 weeks. The local partner companies come to feed this cycle of projects by proposing challenges on real issues they face or will face.

The last 12 months of the part-time course are dedicated to specializing in future fields: artificial intelligence, video games, blockchain, cybersecurity and DevOps or in the development of mobile and web applications… as well as a first part-time job in a partner company.

4. Guaranteed Employment

At the end of this free training of 18 months plus 12 months part-time, all talents trained in Zone01 are guaranteed to work for 3 years at the talent agency 01Talent in various missions or at one of our partner companies.
