Meet Mike on His Trip Through Africa
Mike's upcoming trip through East Africa is a wonderful opportunity to meet face to face with some of our almost half a million Alison learners in the region. Before he left for Kenya, the first stop of his trip, he asked our East African Graduates how Alison has changed their lives. More than a quarter of the graduates testified how Alison's free courses and career development tools diversified their skills (27.3%), while 23.7% were left feeling more confident after completing one or more of our 4000 free Certificate and Diploma courses on offer. Nearly 20% improved their workplace skills with 7.2% and 10.8% testifying how our platform has resulted in employment or a career boost.
Over four weeks, Mike will be travelling by road across Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda and Tanzania. His goal is to hear as many stories as possible from Alison graduates about how they came to Alison, what they studied, and how free study helped empower them in the workplace or through personal development. Mike is also interested to hear from our valued graduates about how we might improve our services, to assist you further in your career, and also assist those in your community to upskill and develop themselves through our free online services.
