Case Study – Learnwithpride
In conversation with Akinkunmi Oladeji
My name is Akin Oladeji and before Learnwithpride Limited, I worked as a Software Automation Engineer.
Learnwithpride Limited is a pioneering IT company. We are dedicated to facilitating seamless transitions for individuals looking to forge a successful career path in the IT industry, even if they come from non-technical or non-IT backgrounds.
Recognising the transformative power of education, Learnwithpride has carved out a niche in providing comprehensive and hands-on training programmes that cater to a variety of IT-related domains.
The genesis of Learnwithpride is a story of personal transformation and the unwavering determination to bridge a gap that I personally encountered. I transitioned from an accounting background to becoming a Software Automation Engineer, which was not just a change of profession, but a journey that inspired the birth of a company dedicated to guiding others through similar transitions.
I always had it at the back of my mind that I wanted to be self-employed, but I didn’t know what type of business to venture into until I transitioned to the IT industry. But I was still a rookie, so to stay on top of the game, I started training friends and family, and from there, I developed the passion and motivation for teaching and that was what gave birth to the business.
I firmly believe that everyone has the potential to thrive in the IT industry, given the right guidance and resources. So, the motivation behind my business involves an inclusive learning approach around equipping learners with the practical skills and theoretical knowledge necessary to succeed.
I also want to make practical hands-on training more accessible. We understand that real-world experience is key to mastering IT disciplines. Our courses provide participants with opportunities to engage in meaningful, project-based activities that mirror the challenges and tasks faced by professionals in their respective fields. By working on actual projects, learners gain invaluable insights into the practical applications of their newfound skills.
In essence, Learnwithpride is more than just a training provider; it’s a gateway to fulfilling IT careers. By fostering a culture of hands-on learning, personalised attention, and industry relevance, we’re making the journey from non-IT backgrounds to the IT space both attainable and rewarding.
