IBM has partnered with the Haryana State Board of Technical Education & Uttar Pradesh SCERT (State Council of Educational Research and Training)
IBM (NYSE: IBM) unveiled a commitment and global plan to provide 30 million people of all ages with new skills needed for the jobs of tomorrow by 2030. To achieve this goal, IBM is announcing a clear roadmap with more than 170 new academic and industry partnerships. The effort will leverage IBM’s existing programs and career-building platforms to expand access to education and in-demand technical roles.
A Program for Everyone
With diverse offerings and an adaptable approach, IBM’s education portfolio strives to be unique and effective, reflecting IBM’s understanding that a one-size-fits-all approach simply does not work when it comes to education. IBM’s programs range from technical education for teens at brick-and-mortar public schools and universities and extend to paid, on-site IBM internships and apprenticeships. The company’s skills and education programs also pair IBM mentorships with learners and provide no-charge, customizable online curricula to aspiring professionals.
IBM’s plan to educate 30 million people relies on its broad combinations of programs and includes collaborations with universities and key government entities -- including employment agencies. Partnerships extend to NGOs as well, particularly those that focus on groups such as underserved youth, women, and military veterans. In general, IBM’s efforts mobilize the private sector across the globe to open and expand opportunity pathways for underrepresented and historically disadvantaged communities.
In India, IBM will continue the partnerships with the Ministry of Skills Development & Entrepreneurship, MEITY, Board of Open Schooling and Skill Education – Sikkim, Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti (DST), CBSE, Skill Development Councils in Goa, Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, NPTEL- IIT-Madras and many others through our implementing partners to upskill youth from across the country.
