T.A.P. (Talent Appreciation Portal), an upcoming social engagement platform for learning and work opportunities signed a Memorandum of Agreement with eduCLaaS Pte Ltd, the international subsidiary of Lithan Academy from Singapore, to be an Authorized Training Partner (ATP) for distribution of its CLaaS® Products in the Philippines.
CLaaS® courses enable digital upskilling of higher education students for the digital economy. They adopt a work-based learning pedagogy with a competency-based curriculum for blended learning journeys that deliver tangible career and business outcomes.
Under the partnership, eduCLaaS at TAP’s campus will deliver applied degree courses with an international work-study journey where the learners gain up to three years of working experience before graduation.
eduCLaaS’s Founder and CEO, Leslie Loh said “Modern employers require plug-and-play graduates who can be productive from the first day of the job. Our 1+3 work-study degrees deliver seamless job induction before graduation: with 1 year of intensive skills acquisition bootcamp and 3 years of on-the-job training at the workplace. Our learners are Glocal (Global yet Local) digital talents as they engage in borderless learning and working, alongside international learners and employers, supported by over 50 regional campuses from across Asia.”
He further added, “We welcome TAP joining our Pan-Asia eduCLaaS platform for incubating Glocal (Global yet Local) digital talents ready for growth in the post-Covid digital economy.”
T.A.P.’s Chief Disrupter, Drew Macaranas has this to say on the occasion, “With Lithan’s 4-year courses breaking ground to meet the near-future’s demand for a regiment of digitally charged workforce, powered-up BI developers, machine learning engineers, and data scientists, T.A.P. is certainly at a vantage take-off point especially with its on-going initiatives and engagements with state, private, (soon) international schools and companies in the Philippines.”
“In an effort to weather the economic storms, T.A.P. is geared up with a Creative and Digital Solutions arm to further its goal of empowering learners, the workforce, and in enabling companies to be future-ready while ensuring constant business continuity. Anything is possible!”
“It’s time to reverse the fear and take a brave step in understanding automation and the digital economy better as a new path to spawn new employment opportunities. Intensifying training and knowledge are keys to unlock a new breed of the workforce to match these jobs. Digital economy will take up much of the future’s space so this crucial step must hone and nurture potential and not merely treat it as reserve cache. With Lithan’s eduCLaaS courses/ educational initiatives, TAP is now more tuned in growing the four important aspects of its learning segment: (1) Innovation & Creativity Mindset; (2) Cognitive Agility & Flexibility; (3) Strong Judgment and Decision-Making skills; (4) Digital Literacy while maintaining strong human and emotional connections. TAP, with Lithan’s help, can now definitely meet the demands of the digital economy and make extra out of the ordinary by building a workforce that can bring the nation to the frontlines.”
