The program is for 16 to 24 weeks. However, group classes holds two times a week.
Stutern is a skills development and job placement platform. We train and connect young African talents with long-term employment. We offer training classes that help you learn valuable skills that are relevant and valuable for the 21st century. Lastly, we also work with employers who want to hire candidates with digital skills.
While all the courses lead to relatively great careers, you must choose a track that aligns with your strengths, goals, and aspirations in life. Each program is immersive, having a strong reason will help you see it through successfully. Below are a few hints from us:
There are four steps to the application process:
Yes, it does. The task submission is mandatory to enroll. Nevertheless, we provide help to inform you of learning resources to enable you to complete the task sufficiently. Beyond the task, the other responses you provide during the application process also determine your admission into the program.
No, no one is expected to attempt the task but you. Since you are the applicant, it is best you attempt the task yourself to help you get familiar with the course and to help decide if the course is right for you.
Yes, you can. Anyone interested in learning new digital skills is welcome to apply for any of our tracks. To be considered for admission, you will be required to complete an application task as a part of the application process. However, the ISA Payment option is only open to graduates who have completed the mandatory NYSC program and residents in Nigeria.
We have three payment options to help you start your journey to getting your dream job
If you choose our ISA payment option, you don’t need to worry about paying Stutern back immediately. Some of us have to wait a little bit before our dream is realized. You have a five-year window before your financial obligation with Stutern is terminated for good. However, we expect that you keep improving your skills while you wait. We will be around to help you.
We are not solely responsible for your employment after the program. Your zeal is also measured by the consistency of your application to jobs outside the Stutern platform. While we provide career support, we expect our learners to be driven and tenacious about their careers.
We have different payment negotiations for our graduates with this scenario. It majorly depends on how long after graduation you are proposing to make this payment. Our account team is always ready to help out.
Of course, you can. We do not control what the universe has in store for us.
If you’re not happy with the course within the first week of class (after the pre-course), you will receive a refund in the amount less the application processing fee.
Our classes are 100% online which enables you to be a part of the class wherever you are. That said, we have a workspace in Gbagada, Lagos. This is available for enrolled learners who need access to the internet, power supply, and sometimes, the community of other learners.
Once you enroll, we equip you with an additional 25 hours of online, preparatory lessons to set you up for success. Dive into the fundamentals of the program you have chosen, learning the basics and getting help from our teaching assistants. The pre-course is mandatory. It will help you gain a common vocabulary to start collaborating with classmates from day one.

No. The program is instructor-led and it requires learners to attend live classes online. Learners are also required to work on assignments, make timely submissions and collaborate with other learners.
Classes hold twice a week. The specific days are dependant on the course you are enrolled.
Since our classes are online and you don’t have to be physically present, it is somewhat flexible. However, there are clear schedules to follow, starting with classes holding twice in a week and some other activities holding for about 1–2 hours on non-class days. Also, the class is focused on hands-on learning through projects. Thus, you will actively work on said projects on non-class days. Bottom line, it is a very immersive program.
Although the program isn’t on a self-paced model, we have recordings for live sessions to help you catch up. We however emphasize that learners make at least 95% of live sessions so that you have the chance to ask your tutor questions and get clarity in real time.
Yes, there are. Aside from the online classes, we hold team-building exercises and learners are free to join within a physical space. Depending on the location you are, we coordinate fellow learners together to have their meetups. Likewise, your instructors, teaching assistant, or guest instructors might also suggest offline sessions to foster collaboration among learners when necessary.
Yes, a learner must complete at least 95% attendance of live sessions (including guest sessions and peer presentations), and 100% class tasks and projects.
We wish we could give you a definite yes but we don't promise our learners jobs. Our promise is to make you employable and connect you with employers. We will work with you to build a great portfolio that will give you the confidence to apply to your dream job. We will also provide you with career advisory services that include building a resume review, online profile review, interview preparation, job negotiation insights, etc.
Like we always say, we can’t force an employer on an Stutern graduate, neither can we force a Stutern graduate on an employer. However, we will be there to provide insights while you deliberate accepting offers. What’s most important is that you prioritize offers that pose room for career growth. Also, since salary raises are relatively quick in this field, we recommend that you don’t overrun your job search.
If you opt for the ISA payment option, your obligation doesn’t start until you get a job (See “Tuition & Income Share Agreement (ISA) Questions” for more details). Regardless of your payment option, we will have your availability status set to “Actively searching” on the Stutern hire page and we will include your profile in placement marketing campaigns until the situation changes. We will work with you to improve your portfolio if there’s a need for that but we expect that you will continuously work on this improvement on your end as well.
Yes. As part of the project weeks' activities toward the tail of the program, there is typically a one-month client’s project also known as an internship. You will typically be grouped in teams alongside learners from either your track or other tracks. Employers then select teams to intern with their team on real-life projects.
