Total number of badges for this pledge

The project will directly benefit 500 disadvantaged people, by providing them with non-formal, up to date, education on Cloud Computing applications and as such increasing their employment readiness.

The first objective of the Cloud Employability Accelerator Program for Romania (Re-Skill) would be to target some of the most difficult groups – NEETs.  A total of 300 NEET young adults will be on-boarded in an accelerated training program (15 courses x 20 adults/course) which will familiarise them with cloud technology. The 70 hour training program will be delivered using the blended learning training methodology. Two of the best performing participants in each course will have the opportunity to take a MTC on Azure Fundamentals or Microsoft 365 Fundamentals.

The second objective will focus on working (Up-Skill) with four low-performing universities in Romania.  EOS will select approximately 50 students in each university (total of 200) who would enter a digital upskilling training program built around Microsoft AI content, learning paths and certification. The training will be supported by a minimum of two selected teachers in each university – they will be first trained by EOS so that they could co-train with the EOS experts and then later deliver the courses independently.
