TO HELP prepare young Filipinos for the jobs of the future, professional services firm Deloitte Philippines and Deloitte Consulting Philippines Delivery Center launched video learning modules in partnership with the Asia Society for Social Improvement and Sustainable Transformation.

The modules were developed by in-house experts from Deloitte and cover four key areas — Cloud Computing, Mobile Development, Business Continuity Management System, and Cybersecurity.

These modules will be rolled out initially to students from partner public universities, which include the Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila, Polytechnic University of the Philippines, Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Pasig, Jose Rizal University, Pateros Technological College, Rizal Technological University, University of Makati, and Philippine Normal University.

“We have committed our best and brightest skilled professionals to share their knowledge and talents to create the said learning modules,” Uday Sreeram, Managing Director of DCPDC, Inc., said. “This just goes to show how seriously we take our WorldClass commitment, [as well as] how agile and flexible Deloitte professionals can be even, or especially, in the toughest circumstances.”

The WorldClass Video Learning Modules will be made available to the public through the ASSIST’s Career Engine YouTube channel.

This will ensure that the modules can reach other sectors such as workers looking to upskill or those who have been laid off and are looking to try other jobs.

Atty. Fredieric Landicho, Managing Partner and CEO of Deloitte Philippines, reaffirmed the firm’s commitment to inclusive and accessible lifelong learning opportunities.

“As a global network that actively prepares our people and our clients for the prosperity and progress of the 4th IR, it seems only just that we also use that capability to prepare those who are at risk of being left behind in this advance: [people] who may not have access to the skills, education, and opportunities that will help them succeed. This is the heart of our WorldClass ambition,” he said.

Through the launch of these modules, Deloitte and ASSIST aim to empower 10,000 Filipino youth by March 2021. Their aim is to empower 380,000 Filipinos by 2030 through the WorldClass initiative.

WorldClass is Deloitte’s global ambition to prepare 50 million people for the future of work by 2030. In Southeast Asia, Deloitte has committed to help 2 million youths succeed.
