We work to make higher education relevant for the future of work in Africa

Over the next decade, Africa’s working-age population will grow to 375 million—dramatically higher than any other region in the world. Higher education has a vital role to play for Africa to reap the benefit of this demographic dividend. The dominant higher education model is thwarted by different gaps from skills mismatch, to limited access, finance and more. Lead360 works with institutions, businesses, governments, and young people to close these gaps by creating value across different higher education verticals including quality, relevance, scale, accessibility and affordability.

What we do

Transforming Higher Education Across Africa.

Education to Employment Programs

We identify identifies specific sectors in the African economy with potential labour absorption. We develop programs that better align human capital development with the needs of the economy. Through these programs, we equip young people with the skills to transition into employment in the sectors.

Increase Access to Quality Education

Lead360 Learning Management System (LMS), Carrus, supports higher institutions to provide more students with access to learning resources. Carrus empowers institutions deliver dynamic, engaging learning experiences and outcome on the go.

Automate your Transcript Processing and Delivery

Our Transcript Management System (TMS) offers educational institutions the flexibility, speed and operational efficiency they need by automating the entire transcript request and academic records process. Lead360 TMS features: Records Digitization, Order tracking/status pushed to students, Centralized Real-time Dashboard Reporting, Credential Verification Directory and Online Payment & Delivery Platform.

Every Young Person Deserves the opportunity of higher education

Higher education is key to this social mobility but, unfortunately, millions of students struggle to get into or through school due to financial constraints. We’re tackling this pervasive issue by partnering with investors and universities to provide an innovative and forward-looking education financing product for students across Africa. Does your institution, public or private, offer its students great career prospects? But unfortunately not every student is able to attend and fees go unpaid? We can help. We partner with institutions from large to small.

Affordable Accomodation for Students

For Africa to reach even 50% of the global rate of enrollment in higher education, it needs infrastructure for more than 6,000,000 additional students. We implement Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) agreements with higher institutions across Africa student housing projects backed by occupancy guarantees or land grants. Lead360 works with investors and banks to secure financing to develop affordable, decent, and sustainable accommodation for these institutions with strong returns through creative deal structures and tools that enhance credit worthiness
