More than 40% of Ukrainians have lost their jobs because of the war (according to a grc.ua study published a week ago), and many Ukrainians have to acquire new skills or even change careers. Today, Google announced a new initiative to help Ukrainians meet the challenges of wartime – Google professional certificates on the Coursera educational platform are available in Ukrainian, and the Google.org charitable foundation has allocated 3 million euros for 5,000 scholarships for Ukrainians who have lost their jobs or are at risk of losing their jobs. This was reported in the official blog of the company.
INCO (Google.org grant recipient) provides up to 5,000 scholarships to Ukrainians who have lost or are at risk of losing their jobs, covering access to and full support for learning from Google on Coursera . The Google Professional Certification program is suitable for both beginners and professionals with experience in their chosen field.
The certificate can be obtained in less than 6 months, studying up to 10 hours per week. Upon completion of the program, members can add their certification to their LinkedIn resume and profile to gain a head start in their job search.
The training is available online on the Coursera platform and covers areas such as Digital Marketing and E-Commerce and IT Support in Ukrainian , as well as Data Analytics , Project Management and UX Design , available in English. The courses are conducted completely online – students during the training will be able to watch training videos, read materials and complete assignments at a convenient time and in a convenient place in the web version or mobile application.
INCO has received over €3,000,000 in grant funding from Google.org to provide Ukrainians with up to 5,000 scholarships covering the cost of a Coursera subscription to access Google Professional Certificates. .
The grant will allow INCO, through its Work in Tech program, in collaboration with Prometheus , PRJCTR and VUM , to provide Ukrainians with the opportunity to gain important digital skills and receive additional support in knowledge acquisition and professional development. This grant is part of a contribution from Google.org and Google employees of more than $40,000,000 in cash assistance and $5,000,000 in donations .
In support of small and medium businesses, Google is launching a separate program with Coursera – 1,000 companies will receive free access to the Google Professional Certification Program for their employees.
