School-to-Work(S2W) Program


School-to-Work(S2W) Program

Our Programs

Our School-to-work (S2W) program is specially designed to prepare graduates for insertion into the job market by giving them the opportunity to work on paid or unpaid jobs while studying a program carefully designed to meet the needs of partner companies.

Graduates who have had no previous work experience at all are unlikely to be successful during the selection process and have little or no chance of receiving a job offer from hiring organizations.

Ours is the only School-to-work program offered by a Vocational Training Institute in the Republic of Cameroon. S2W is unique in that it is taught through a special model we call the SEA model. SEA is Skills, Experience, Attitude.

The major objective of the S2W program is to ensure that graduates are equipped with the right SKILLS, EXPERIENCE, and ATTITUDES that will give them an edge in the job market.


At Fotabe University of Cameroon, there are two components of the S2W program: Graduate Work-Study (GWS) and Student Work-Study (SWS).

The Graduate Work-Study (GWS):

The primary purpose of the Graduate Work-Study (GWS) program is to prepare recent graduates for insertion into the job market. We do this by providing career coaching, mentorship, and work placement with our partner organizations. 

The Student Work-Study (SWS)

The primary purpose of the Student Work-Study (SWS) program is to offer part-time employment opportunities for students with great financial need, to enable them to pursue a course of study at Fotabe University of Cameroon. Through this program, students gain valuable work experience, important hard and soft skills, and are molded to develop the right mindset/attitude for career success. 


Both the GWS and the SWS are held on our campus in Douala and online via our E-Learning platform.


To be eligible for the Graduate work-study, applicants must be holders of either a BTS or HND, or BSc, or BBA, or MBA or MSc or any other equivalent.

To be eligible for the Student Work-study, applicants must be holders of at least an Advanced Level Certificate and be ready to work part-time while they study.


The school-to-work pay has one particularity:

S2W pay is not a guaranteed amount. Our hiring organizations determine the pay they provide to students.
