Skills to Succeed

Our Skills to Succeed initiative is about supporting and empowering people to take on the shifting workforce landscape.

Our commitment to the global workforce

With our partners, our global Skills to Succeed initiative has equipped nearly 4.6 million people with the skills to make substantive improvements to their lives. In 2020, this support was in demand even more due to the impact of the pandemic.

We continually evolve Skills to Succeed to meet changing market needs and support people throughout their career journey, and we aim to inspire belief in the power of technology to change the world.
