No matter what the job or sector, employers increasingly expect young people to arrive equipped with the digital capabilities necessary to thrive in modern working environments.
The more young people have a sound working knowledge of AI, data management and the Cloud, the more attractive they are to potential employers. Recent research has revealed that employers are placing more importance on tech skills and IT certifications than ever before but that 80% of those companies feel that young people are not yet ready to work, and 68% of students don’t understand what skills they need to get there. (Microsoft’s Degree+ Digital whitepaper).
That’s why Scotland is integrating Microsoft’s globally recognised certifications into an exciting new qualification: The Wonder of AI & the Cloud - to give Scotland’s students the head start they need to excel.
On successful completion students will gain 4 highly valued international gold standard Microsoft Certifications as well as an SCQF Level 6 award.
