IBM has committed to providing new skills to 30 million people of all ages by 2030 as part of a global initiative to prepare them for future occupations. IBM has released a detailed plan for achieving this goal, which includes more than 170 new academic and commercial partnerships. To boost access to education and in-demand technical jobs, IBM will leverage its existing initiatives and career-building platforms.
A Program for Everyone
With a wide offering and flexible approach, IBM’s education portfolio seeks to be unique and effective, reflecting IBM’s belief that a one-size-fits-all approach to education simply does not work. Paid, on-site IBM internships and apprenticeships, as well as technical education for adolescents at brick-and-mortar public schools and colleges, are among IBM’s initiatives. IBM mentorships are matched with students enrolled in the company’s skills and education programs, and ambitious professionals can make use of a free, customizable online curriculum.
IBM’s goal of educating 30 million people is based on a variety of programs, as well as partnerships with universities and significant government bodies including employment agencies. Non-governmental organizations (NGOs), notably those that engage with marginalized adolescents, women, and military veterans, are also included in partnerships. IBM’s programs, in general, mobilize the private sector around the world to expand and improve opportunities for historically disadvantaged and underrepresented communities.
IBM will continue working with the Ministry of Skills Development & Entrepreneurship, MEITY, Board of Open Schooling and Skill Education (BOSSE) – Sikkim, Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti (DST), CBSE, Skill Development Councils in Goa, Telangana, and Andhra Pradesh, NPTEL-IIT-Madras, and many other organizations in India through our implementing partners to upskill youth from all across the nation.
