The African Centre for Technical Training (ACTT) was envisioned in 2015 and founded in 2022 out of pure grit and passion for reimagining Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) in Africa for the 21st century and beyond. We believe that artisans and the youth can be empowered to become the creative leaders of Africa’s industrial transformation. We are on a mission to empower artisans by continuously providing world-class, demand-driven, competency-based, hands-on training and the 21st century business skills required to power Africa’s industrial transformation.

Our innovative model leverages technology and adopts a responsive approach to skills training and jobs for young people, local artisans and businesses in the following envisioned trade areas plumbing, mechanical, electrical, woodwork, block laying, tiling, roofing, ceiling, painting and welding. We currently run Artisanal Leadership Development Programs monthly, and will admit our first trainees in Plumbing Systems Design in September this year. The plumbing program will run for 6 months and 18months. We welcome applications from junior/senior high school graduates, unemployed university graduates, early school dropouts and local artisans both masters and apprentices.
