Blend Of Both Learning

CMS Africa employs ‘Blended Learning’ EXPERIENCE that allows learners to think and experiment for themselves through the course. It is a transformative theory that makes sure learners are ready for the job market. 

Flipped ClassRoom 

Our learning is competency-based. This means that our students learn at their own speed. First, they learn basic concepts.  Once basic is grasped, they put what they have learned into action by tackling practical real-life exercises and activities.

Academy Our learning Space

Our technical mentors, mainly volunteers and friends of CMS Africa, guide the learners through these exercises, activities, projects and assignments. All businesses appreciate real-world skills to tackle their real-life problems. We at CMS Africa Academy aim to achieve this by creating the industrial linkages required to create spaces for brilliant and innovative youth to create solutions at a whole new level with our content.

Our learners are then trained on how to run a business based on what they have learned.

Volunteer & Staff

We have a few volunteers that set apart time to work at the CMS Africa. They do tasks such as doing organizing our monthly events, university tours and organizing the summit.
