Enderun Extension, the continuing education arm of Enderun Colleges, is proud to announce its strengthened and newly established partnerships with renowned international tech-driven companies that aim to narrow the gap in achieving the relevant skills that today’s workforce value most. Enderun has secured partnerships with Microsoft, UX Design Institute, Cisco, National Association of Data Privacy Officers of the Philippines (NADPOP), and Project Management Institute (PMI). It has also joined the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Academy program to offer AWS Academy Cloud courses.
According to Linkedin research, blockchain, cloud computing, analytical reasoning, artificial intelligence, UX design, and business analysis are some of the in-demand hard skills companies of today need the most. While it is known that soft skills tell how employees work together, hard skills define what employees are working on. Moreover, learning and development have a new way of helping professionals strengthen their skills and find resilience in these challenging times.
“In our rapidly digitally transforming world, it’s more essential than ever for technical professionals to advance their skills and for employers to invest in skills improvement,” says Colin Christie, director of digital transformation at Enderun. “An ideal mode of online learning is the combination of self-paced modules and labs with live sessions led by an instructor to reinforce the concepts and give students the opportunity to ask questions. We’re excited to extend this approach through our new technology company partnerships to our Enderun Extension offerings.”
