Our goal hasn’t changed: we built a non-profit platform enabling instructors and students all around the globe to learn and use useful skills. By enabling international interaction, communication, and information transfer, we were able to address and equip the next generation with the industry’s changing requirements.
Huawei is committed to strengthening the ICT talent ecosystem, according to Liu.
“CHED has been working closely with Huawei to promote creative technology interventions in education throughout the pandemic,” said Hon. Prospero De Vera, Chairman of the Commission on Higher Education, recognizing Huawei’s commitment to the Philippine education sector. Huawei ICT Academy promotes and develops students’ abilities, transforming professional application into real-world ICT change.” He went on to say that CHED “would continue to flourish despite the pandemic’s limitations via initiatives from the ICT community.”
Dr. William Torres, dubbed the “Father of the Philippine Internet,” shared his thoughts with the audience.
The Huawei ICT Competition has helped students improve their skills and knowledge.
Students learn more about the real-world use of ICT via this approach, he said.
More significantly, students gain from exposure to how ICT is used to address real-world issues. After completing industry-specific training, they are ready for the future.
The ICT Competition is held by Huawei ICT Academy to help students enhance their practical skills and increase their job market competitiveness. The Academy offers free certification training to academics and students in order to build local ICT expertise and promote the growth of the country’s ICT sector.
With just ten university partners, Huawei launched the ICT Academy in the Philippines in 2019. In the Philippines, Huawei ICT Academy currently has over 50 university members. Huawei Philippines aims to certify 5,000 students in five years, up from 600 in 2020. Huawei’s curriculum also includes trainers from other institutions across the nation.
