Smile Private School Myanmar signed a Memorandum of Agreement with eduCLaaS Pte Ltd, the international subsidiary of Lithan Academy from Singapore, to be an Authorized Training Partner (ATP) for distribution of its CLaaS® Products across Myanmar.
CLaaS® courses enable digital upskilling of higher education students for the digital economy. They adopt a work-based learning pedagogy with a competency-based curriculum for blended learning journeys that deliver tangible career and business outcomes.
Under the partnership, eduCLaaS at Smile’s campus will deliver applied degree courses with an international work-study journey where the learners gain up to three years of working experience before graduation.
eduCLaaS’s Founder and CEO, Leslie Loh said“Modern employers require plug-and-play graduates who can be productive from the first day of the job. Our 1+3 work-study degrees deliver seamless job induction before graduation: with 1 year of intensive skills acquisition bootcamp and 3 years of on-the-job training at the workplace. Our learners are Glocal (Global yet Local) digital talents as they engage in borderless learning and working, alongside international learners and employers, supported by over 100 regional campuses from across Asia.”
He further added, “We welcome Smile Private School joining our Pan-Asia eduCLaaS platform for incubating Glocal Global yet Local) digital talents ready for growth in the post-Covid digital economy.”
Daw Nyein Nyein Lwin, Founder and Principal of Smile Private School had this to say on the occasion,“Through our partnership with Lithan Myanmar University (eduCLaaS), we will be able to produce future-ready talents in the digital economy. Students enrolled into our work-study program will enjoy the benefits of attaining international credentials, having work experience up to three years even before graduation, and earning income while still studying.”
“Also, for those who want international exposure, our international faculty and international cohort will provide you with experiences of studying with peers and lecturers from other countries. Ultimately, this partnership will help create an education system that will prepare Myanmar youths as digital talents and will hopefully be a solution for unemployment and/or underemployment in our country.”
