The Slatecube iDeaLabs project is a 3-month blended learning (residential and virtual) training, internship and job matching effort designed by our Developer, Design & Marketing team to train both newbies and entry-levelers, on how to build Web Apps, 2D/3D animations, Graphics Design and Social Media Marketing Campaigns.
1. Onboarding Phase
This is a 5-day professional on-boarding process where candidates are exposed to the Slatecube Talent Cycle, Site Visits, and Personal Branding Activities. The aim of the on-boarding phase is to orientate candidates on how best to maximize opportunities in their chosen fields, and to better prepare them for the Program.
2. Expert-in-residence Phase
Also known as the EiR Phase, is a 2-month period where we move the training sessions from concept and theory, to hands-on practical challenges. Immediately after this, the best candidates are attached to work either physically or remotely for companies around the world in order to build job experience .
3. Job Matching Phase
This stage typically occurs 1 week before completing the EiR Phase. We work to place top performing candidates into world-class companies in the Slatecube network.
