Hear from our current graduates


The experience has been great! It has been a learning curve with lots of projects in-between, and I work with really genuine individuals who do really care about you. I am glad to have taken part in so many projects within such a short time and I hope to continue contributing while learning and developing skills to help make the planet better.

Adeyemi Ariyo

ICL Project Consultant

It has been a very good experience since the beginning, I have developed new skills and improved my abilities through working on different projects and tasks, and also thanks to the support of my team. I like the fact that there is lots of opportunities to learn from different perspectives. Every task is different, so I have never had the feeling I was doing a repetitive job.
