New Micro-credentials to Transform Non-Tech Graduates into Tech Professionals
Graduates today not only face unemployment, but the rapid digital advancement is also catching up, and graduates are not ready for the wave of the 4th Industrial Revolution. Those who spent nearly half a decade on non-tech degrees are feeling the pinch when attempting to meet the demands of industries.
On the other hand, employers find it challenging to hire graduates that are competent in the aspects of technological and digital skills.
The need for tech professionals is growing day-by-day, but graduates often present zero to low expertise within the tech field. Oftentimes, graduates end up in job roles that do not match their academic qualifications.
To curb the huge mismatch between talent and jobs, iTrain Asia has partnered with Asia e University, one of the most innovative universities within the region to launch a Digital Tech Micro-credentials Program. Micro-credentials including Full-stack Development, Data Engineering, UX Design and Deep Learning (AI) are set to transform non-tech graduates into tech professionals.
iTrain Asia, hand-in-hand with Asia e University hopes to train 1000 future tech specialists ready for the workforce by the end of 2021.
This micro-credentials program is designed to encourage personal development through a compact schedule that comprises 70% Lecture Classes and 30% Practical Classes that motivates learners to work with real-world projects. Aimed to push learners to reach their fullest potential, the program gives in-depth insights of the intensity of real-world scenarios, with frequent feedback from employers.
With iTrain Asia’s engagement with PIKOM, an association representing the information and communications technology industry in Malaysia, individual employers can get involved in the employment of trained graduates from this micro-degree.
The launching of this Digital Tech Micro-credentials Program will be held alongside a forum, ‘Micro-credentials: Bridging the Digital Talent Gap’ as a part of Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation’s (MDEC) #MyDigitalWorkforceWeek on the 25th of August 2020 2pm to 4pm at Asia e University’s (AeU) Subang Jaya Campus, graced by speakers from Asia e University, iTrain Asia, PIKOM, Human Resources Development Fund (HRDF) and Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC).
