In-person Hubs are accessible to anyone. They are designed specifically to enhance the learning experience.

Through connection and collaboration, learners can utilise Hubs to boost their productivity and achieve their individual goals.
ALX offers job-ready training in the tech fields employers need most. ALX, in partnership with The ROOM, is brought to you by the organisation that leads African Leadership Academy, African Leadership University, and Anzisha Prize Foundation.
The ALX Selection Process is a two-step online process. First applicants will be required to complete a registration form which will take a few minutes to complete. Once this has been submitted, applicants will be directed to our online application platform. The application will take approximately 90 mins to complete and consists of three sections; including an English proficiency test. Applicants will also receive access to the online application via email. Your link to the application is personal and therefore cannot be shared.
ALX programmes have a set number of cohort seats and in order to ensure you stand the best possible chance of getting accepted into the programme we recommend you apply as early as possible. The ALX selection period is split into two halves. Learners who apply before 9th August will receive feedback on their registration by 16th August. Learners who apply later than 9th August will receive feedback by 12th September.
All ALX learners are invited to join The ROOM Fellowship community where you will have access to a global network of resources, job opportunities, and ongoing career support.
Attending the in-person hubs is a benefit of the ALX learning experience. The in-person co-working spaces are designed to provide accountability, peer support, and the opportunity for face-to-face interaction and networking. This is intended to boost productivity and help individuals achieve their goals.
