Globe, Yondu create training program for aspiring IT professionals

Globe Telecom, in partnership with Yondu, created the Accelerated Cloud Cadetship Enablement Program (AC2E) to seek and train aspiring IT professionals in the field of cloud technology.

“Globe is providing an opportunity for the next generation of IT professionals to be exposed in Cloud Technology with AC2E program at a young age,” Globe Chief Information Officer Pebbles Manalang said.

Globe and Yondu recognize that cloud technology will be a critical enabler of IR4.0 and is launching this initiative to ensure that the Philippines is able to deliver the talent needed to succeed in the coming industrial revolution.

AC2E is a cloud capability build program that offers a holistic technical and professional development plan to aspiring IT professionals for the duration of seven months. It aims to produce 25 highly skilled cloud practitioners who are deployment and future-ready. It will launch in November with a series of events until December. Official onboarding and start of the program will be from January 2020 until August 2020.

The program is open to university or associate course graduates in relevant fields. Those who will be shortlisted will undergo paper screening and workshops. Employment at Yondu awaits those who will be chosen. As employees, they will receive mentoring as well as training to develop their technical skills.

For six months, the cadets will develop their skills and competencies in five major areas, or “stints.” To culminate the entire program, a Capstone Project will be given to the cadets.
