Trends Academy, a learning and development solutions provider from the Philippines 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 Trends’ 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 Trends Academy joining our Pan-Asia eduCLaaS platform for incubating Glocal (Global yet Local) digital talents ready for growth in the post-Covid digital economy.”
Sir Philip San Luis, Business Unit Head of Trends Academy expressed optimism in the partnership, "eduCLaaS has presented us with a great opportunity to not only venture into a new line of business from what we currently have, but also to serve our fellow Filipinos, now targeted towards the younger generation who dreams to pursue an international standard of higher studies.”
