BillEase, a consumer finance app, and GoIT, an ed-tech company, are working together to provide underserved Filipinos access to IT (information technology) courses, acquire digital skills, and find employment eventually.
This partnership between BillEase and GoIT aims to address the skills gap in the Philippines and adapt to the employment landscape that has been undergoing a wave of changes.
“The partnership between BillEase and GoIT is a significant milestone in our mission to democratize access to high-quality IT education for Filipinos,” said Georg Steiger, CEO and Co-founder of BillEase. “We believe that by offering flexible financing options, we can empower more individuals to pursue their dreams in the technology sector, regardless of their financial background.”
Founded in 2016, GoIT is an international edtech company that has been providing IT education in more than 30 countries online with branches in Ukraine, Poland, Turkey, Mexico, the United States, and the Philippines.
GoIT offers beginner-friendly online courses to equip learners with data skills and create websites and applications so they can start a career in tech. GoIT uses a project-based learning approach, ensuring that their learners acquire hands-on experience and practical skills. The learning process is divided into 70% practice, 20% feedback, and 10% theory, enabling students to build their portfolios, contribute to team projects, and excel in individual tasks.
Upon completing their studies, learners are awarded a Diploma of Completion, which serves as tangible proof of their newly acquired skills and knowledge. Some 89% of GoIT learners find a new job within six (6) months after graduation, according to the company.
“We are excited to work with BillEase to help more Filipinos gain access to our IT courses and accelerate their careers in technology,” said Khrystyna Gankevych, head of Growth at GoIT. Together, we can create a more inclusive digital ecosystem that benefits everyone.”
