BagoSphere PH Inc. is pleased to announce its partnership with LearnKey, which will help expand BagoSphere’s program offerings into digital skills training. LearnKey’s online courses will add to BagoSphere’s current offerings of communications, customer service and soft skills such as critical thinking, to help bridge the skill gap in the Philippines.
“Bagosphere has a vision to drive youth development and adult learning solutions that are directly aligned to key IT and career ready employability skills for today’s job market. We could not have a better partner in the Philippines with the right people, process and support to address the skills gap.” Jeff Coruccini, CEO LearnKey, INC.
The partnership between BagoSphere and LearnKey is aimed at addressing a growing global skill gap problem, and particularly in the Philippines many employers report difficulty in finding qualified employees. The McKinsey Global Institute report predicts that by 2030, as many as 800 million jobs could be lost worldwide to automation. In response to this demand, BagoSphere aims to work with LearnKey to scale efforts to bridge the skill gap by working with employers and schools in the Philippines.
“LearnKey has over 30 years of experience in delivering high impact and quality online skills training all over the world. While we have been focusing on communications and soft skills, we found digital literacy skills lacking in many areas. We are thrilled to share LearnKey’s vision in addressing the skill gap, improve careers and help filipinos address the coming change in the workplace.” Zhihan Lee, Group CEO of BagoSphere.
As a result, BagoSphere & LearnKey have come together to collaborate to provide IT certification programs. The programs offered are both online and self-paced, allowing greater convenience for students and learners. Besides offering the program to employers to upskill and retain talent, BagoSphere is exploring offering LearnKey courses for students and working professionals who wish to gain access to entry-level and middle-level jobs in the IT and BPO industries, or to gain skills to work in the freelance domain. BagoSphere aims to provide the LearnKey programs affordably, and look into partnerships in the Philippine countryside so as to enable learners there to be equally competitive.
The partnership will start with a pilot phase, with programs offered through retail and through partnerships with schools, universities and employers.
