Pay4Me and Treford Launch Groundbreaking No-Code Tech Incubator Program (NCTIP) 

Pay4Me, a cutting-edge cross-border payment provider, and Treford, a no-code tech skill platform for professionals and businesses, have formed a major partnership to empower international students and immigrants through the launch of  The “No-Code Tech Incubator Program (NCTIP) 1.0”. This collaboration seeks to equip 10,000 current and prospective international students and immigrants from Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Liberia, and South Africa with essential no-code tech skills to pursue rewarding careers in the tech industry. The initiative will offer comprehensive training and career support to help these individuals become job-ready while furthering their education and/or careers abroad.

Applications for the first cohort will open on April 1st, 2024, and will admit 1000 candidates from various backgrounds: International students, immigrants, relocating professionals, recent graduates, early-stage professionals, and those transitioning from other roles into the tech industry.

Addressing the Skills Gap in Non-Technical Tech Fields

According to Glassdoor, about 54 percent of tech industry jobs are non-technical. These roles, including marketing, sales, product management, design, and data analysis, to mention just a few, offer exciting career opportunities without requiring traditional coding abilities. The NCTIP recognizes the growing demand for non-technical jobs and aims to bridge the gap between aspiring professionals and the industry. Thus, throughout the program, participants will gain practical knowledge and expertise in key no-code tech fields like product management, product marketing, product design, content marketing, quality assurance, UX copywriting, and data analytics.

A Multi-Stage Program Empowering Participants

NCTIP 1.0 offers a comprehensive curriculum divided into three distinct stages:

Pre-Session: The program commences on the first week of April with a panel discussion featuring industry experts. This discussion will introduce participants to no-code tech roles, such as product design, content marketing, product management, product marketing, quality assurance, UX copywriting, and data analytics. Attendees will gain insights into the fundamentals of each role, career prospects, interview strategies, and essential skills required for success.

Vetting Process: The second stage follows the pre-session, during which participants can access their Starter Packs—a comprehensive set of fundamental courses for no-code tech career paths. Experts from leading companies like Microsoft, Interswitch, and Paystack will deliver these courses using videos, extra resources, and quizzes. Participants will advance to the next stage after completing and passing the quiz.

Bootcamps: Participants who complete the Starter Packs and pass the required assessments will join bootcamps for different roles. The bootcamps commence in May and provide over 12  weeks of intensive training across various no-code specialties.

Collaboration for Impact 

"By combining Pay4Me's expertise in fintech and Treford's prowess in ed-tech, we can make meaningful contributions to the lives of international students and immigrants," stated Sunday Paul Adah, CEO of Pay4Me. "This partnership allows us to leverage our respective strengths and provide robust training that will transform the career trajectories of 10,000 African immigrants and international students regardless of where they are in the world."

“The world has evolved into one small global village through the power of technology. At Treford, we want to erase the skill barrier stopping Africans and Immigrants at large from becoming truly global citizens contributing to the growth of global economies with their skills. This partnership helps us take one more step in our vision to make Treford a no-code tech skill platform for global talents”. Stated Harry Enaholo, CEO & Cofounder of Treford

The No-Code Tech Incubator Program represents a joint commitment to address the growing demand for skilled professionals in non-technical tech roles. Through Pay4Me's fintech platform 

and Treford's educational expertise, participants will receive a well-rounded education that prepares them for real-world challenges and opportunities.

Connecting Incubator Participants to Fitting Career Opportunities

The new collaboration will match participants with environments where their abilities can flourish. Whether it involves spearheading transformative projects, tackling complex challenges, or developing novel solutions, we ensure their skills find fertile ground to thrive. NCTIP 1.0 will connect incubator participants with rich assets to roles and opportunities within organizations that can fully harness their potential.

Beyond Tech Skills: Building a Community

NCTIP 1.0 goes beyond skill development. The program fosters a supportive community for participants. Attendees will gain access to the exclusive Global Pay4Me International Student & Immigrants Community, a platform for networking, career guidance, and potential internship and job opportunities across various African and North American startups and businesses.

Next Steps

Individuals interested in the No-Code Tech Incubator Program can visit pay4me.treford.org  and complete the online application form. All applications will be reviewed, and successful candidates will receive an email 4-5 days after the application has closed.
