The country's employment situation has yet to re-establish itself on the road to recovery. With a sizable portion of the Philippines' local workforce having either lost their jobs or simply found themselves unable to meet the current technological demands sought by the current job market in this "new normal," establishing a new and sustainable means of income generation through stable employment is proving to be more difficult now than in previous years for the majority of the population.

Google Philippines, in collaboration with the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) through its ICT Literacy and Competency Development Bureau (ILCDB) led by Assistant Secretary for Upskilling Jeffrey Ian Dy and with the advice of Department Secretary Ivan John Uy, is looking into the possibility of making currently relevant and in-demand ICT training courses available to Filipinos.

Google plans to offer four courses through as part of this initiative: IT Support, User Experience (UX) Design, Data Analytics, and Project Management. Each course will concentrate on the development of a specific set of ICT skills, ranging from troubleshooting and system administration to project management and business processing.

Through a criteria-based candidate selection process, a scholarship system will be available to allow Filipinos who do not have the available financial resources for the courses to participate in this initiative and open new doors for themselves. (Source: DICT)
