Whether you are a high school student, a graduate, an entrepreneur, or a professional, GetBundi has something for you when it comes to STEM education and digital skills.
GETBUNDI, a digital education platform designed to create easy access to high quality education for young African children was recently launched in Lagos.
According to the media, GetBundi aims to equip young people with skills in science, engineering technology and mathematics (STEM) with a particular focus on the six years of post-primary education.
During his keynote at the launch on Thursday, June 29, 2022, Mr. Osita Oparaugo, Founder/CEO of GetBundi, reiterates that STEM learning encourages creativity, innovation, critical thinking and problem-solving skills that are highly relevant in the 21st century world. , and also prepare developing economies to compete in the global marketplace.
“The platform is designed to change the lives of African youth and the trajectory of the African continent. GetBundi programs are designed to help young Africans overcome challenges in STEM subjects.
“The product aims to equip young people across Africa with high quality, accessible and affordable education.
“Our STEM education is based on the West African curriculum, is aimed at post-primary students from JSS1/Year 7 to SSS3/Year 12, and covers subjects such as physics, chemistry, mathematics, ICT, data processing, English language, etc. .
“This is a supplement that can be used as a teacher’s aid, to support ongoing learning for in-school students, and as a study guide for out-of-school or homeschool students.
“It can also be used to prepare those taking competitive exams such as WAEC, NECO or university and tertiary exams run by JAMB.
“The courses are also useful for people who intend to retake exams, change courses at the University or switch to another science-based course,” he said.
GetBundi currently offers over 1,008 hours of audiovisual content on the platform spanning six years of secondary school work using the West African curriculum.
He went on to note that GetBundi was working to include three years of JAMB, IELTS and TOEFL review courses, as well as science, technology and innovation skills in its next product rollout.
He said STI skills would include courses in video editing, digital marketing, graphic design and coding, and users who successfully completed a course and the accompanying assignments would earn a diploma.
“Learning digital skills is a must for anyone in the 21st century, especially in Africa. Remote STEM-focused jobs are in high demand and well paid, and with so many people ready to change but not knowing where to start, GetBundi is the one stop shop for you,” he said.
The founder of GetBundi said the acquisition of STI/digital skills by young people would boost trade and help build a tech-led African market.
“Our projection is to support and upskill 10 million Africans over the next 10 years through the acquisition of STEM and STI digital skills; a strategy we have dubbed ‘The GetBundi Vision 2032’,” he said.
He called on the African Union and regional economic organizations on the continent, such as the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and the Southern African Development Community (SADC), to fit into this vision.
