Microsoft Introduces Job Skills Pathways in Nigeria

Building on the success of its Global Skills Initiative, which was launched in June 2020, Microsoft has introduced the Skills for Jobs Learning Pathways in Nigeria as the next phase in its skilling work.

It stated that the Skills for Jobs Learning Pathways would give learners access to 350 new courses and easy-to-follow learning tracks.

They claim that since the inception of the Global Skills Initiative, they have assisted over 80 million people in gaining access to digital and basic skills.

According to them, the global skills program has impacted 507,000 youth and government employees in Nigeria, while 372,000 Nigerian youth and government employees have been trained in digital, role-based foundational, and technical training.

However, Microsoft is believed to have discovered that skills alone are insufficient for people to get the employment they want, particularly in the most in-demand jobs. People, especially those changing careers, they discovered, need to be able to demonstrate these talents to hiring supervisors.

They promised that by 2025, they would have trained and certified 10 million workers.

They had set out to provide free access to 350 new courses and easy-to-follow learning routes, as well as six career necessities credentials for six of the most in-demand jobs, in collaboration with LinkedIn.

There would be three new learning paths that would establish fundamental abilities: digital literacy and productivity, soft skills, and entrepreneurship.

There are six career certifi­cates available for learners progressing beyond foundational competencies.
