Globe, Google Phils to provide 39K certified courses for IT upskilling

TAKING its investments in education further, Globe has partnered with Google Phils. to provide 39,000 scholarships on advanced information-technology (IT) certificate courses by arming low-income students and jobseekers with work-ready skills.

Under the tie-up, Globe and government stakeholders will invite qualified recipients for the Google Career Certificates program, and also track their progress.

Google Career Certificates provide a suite of flexible online training programs spanning three to six months, which are available at Coursera.org. It is open to everyone 18-years-old and above, and requires no previous degree or experience. There are four certificate options: IT Support, User Experience Design, Data Analytics, and Project Management.

“Google is committed to supporting the Philippines’s economic growth through the opportunities created by the country’s growing digital economy,” said Bernadette Nacario, Google Phils. country director.

“With unemployment rate at 5.2 percent and rapidly growing job postings in tech, Google hopes to address the digital skills gap and improve the lives of thousands of Filipinos for themselves and their families by providing free Google Career Certificates.”

Globe will make the new service accessible to its Globe Prepaid and TM customers, partner-schools and local government units.
