Our Training Program
Are you an unemployed female with a passion for tech, but not enough skills? Our dedicated training & career mapping will help you land a job in 15 - 16 weeks.
Become a Trainer
We rely on Expert Trainers who are interested in giving back their time and resources, to mentor and coach candidates.
As a GLT Trainer, you will be paired with one or many candidate(s) (max. 4) to provide guidance and support for the period of their training, usually 16 weeks. For flexibility and remote access, all technical training courses are available online to allow the candidates to study by themselves. These will be provided to the trainer and candidate(s) accordingly.
Initially, the trainer will introduce the candidate to the course and then schedule regular check ins throughout their program to ensure completion. Trainers are required to provide regular updates on their candidate’s progress with GLT. They can also provide additional training and testing material, at their discretion, which will be reviewed with GLT before incorporating into the candidate’s training program.
We have various ways in which individuals and companies can offer support. See more details below:
Become a GLT ambassador.
You will act as a champion for the foundation by seeking and securing candidates, trainers and partners – individuals and institutions. You will promote the platform and foundation to press and media, and also assist with planning and executing key events, like Assessment Days, Founder Series, Offline workshops, etc. Where possible, you will help the foundation secure funding, grants, and donations.
Become a GLT partner.
As a recruiting partner, your company will commit to giving preferential access to GLT candidates during recruitment cycles, by admitting referred candidates into the interview step of the process. As a non-recruiting partner, you will provide resources to help with training and administrative work. These include but are not limited to laptops, Internet access, online training course materials, office space for offline sessions/events, funding, etc.
