Reaching tens of thousands of learners and changing lives through upskilling.
The first program was so successful in upskilling and creating opportunities for learners that Google wanted to develop a second, continuing program to help learners advance in their IT careers. Google invited us back to build and produce the Google IT Automation With Python Professional Certificate, launched worldwide in January 2020.
Our engaging, award-winning learner experiences include 11 course presenters and 14 Google employees, featured across more than 900 distinct videos shot in dozens of locations.
Our videos feel cinematic, and include animation, motion graphics, demonstrations, and feature real-world scenarios learners are likely to experience on the job.
In its first year, the Google IT Support Professional Certificate program enrolled more than 50,000 learners ready to transform their careers. As of April 2020 the program has enrolled over 140,000 learners and 57% did not have a college degree.
We’re proud to say that program completion rates are also 2.5 times higher than those of comparable content on Coursera.
According to the Impact Report, 84% of learners also reported a positive impact on their career within six months of completing the program.
We’re also very pleased to hear from Google that 60% of program participants identify as female, Black, Latino, or veterans. Reaching traditionally underserved populations was an important goal for Google and for us, so we’re excited about that progress.
We’re honored that our first Google learning series is now a highly-valued learning asset at more than 100 community colleges across the United States with over 50 partners participating in the hiring consortium.
