As the education sector is disrupted by evolving technologies in past few years, the traditional book- and teacher-based learning model is replaced by digitally-driven mentor-led learning modules. Students today are empowered with access to quality, personalized learning resources anytime and anywhere. APAC CIO Outlook awards Lithan as one of the most impactful edtech solutions providers amongst others, who equipped with their innovative technological capabilities, are set to transform the education landscape.
With its vision is to become Asia’s leading ‘Digital Learning and Talents Platform’ for delivering future ready talents and enterprises growth in the digital economy, Lithan Academy is embarking on a fundamental redefinition of the education ecosystems. It believes the income inequality in Asian countries, the digitalization of workplace, and the Covid-19 pandemic, have all together aggravated the problem of talent crunch in the industries, particularly the new-age skills set like digital and business skills.
Lithan’s innovation to support these emerging learning needs is CLaaS® — Competency Learning as a Service. It adopts competency-based curriculums with work-based applied learning pedagogy to deliver knowledge acquisition in the classroom and on-the-job skills mastery at the workplace using real-world projects. CLaaS® is delivered in blended learning mode with experts mentoring from industry practitioners.
CLaaS implements work-based applied learning pedagogy with a 70:20:10 learning model, where learners not only acquire knowledge and skills in the classroom, but they also learn how to apply them in workplaces across industries. Built on AI, CLaaS provides a personalized learning journey for improved knowledge and skills, which translate to enhanced workplace productivity and strong career growth for students.
Lithan is a digital skills academy from Singapore with accreditations from Ministry of Education of Singapore and Pearson UK. It has served over 30,000 learners and 2,000 enterprises with its direct presence in Singapore, Malaysia, Myanmar, and India, its target is to ‘Train and Place’ 100,000 talents each year by 2025.

Our goal is to mitigate mismatches in supply and demand of digital skills and talents across Asia with the implementation of our CLaaS Academy — a pan-Asia digital learning and talent platform able to deliver talents and enterprises growth in the post-COVID-19 digital economy.”
