On 17 Oct 2022, the Head of Partnership from the University of Roehampton, Mr George Knell visited eduCLaaS headquarter in Singapore to formally launch the collaboration between Lithan Academy – a subsidiary under eduCLaaS and University of Roehampton UK, to deliver inclusive work-study degree for bridging digital skills gaps in Singapore and across Asia. The programmes have now been registered with CPE, an agency under SkillsFuture Singapore, which is a statutory board under the Ministry of Education. University of Roehampton has a long history of developing and delivering apprenticeship programmes in the London home campus as well as in partnership with the industries
According to Mr Knell, the partnership with eduCLaaS is a perfect match in which University of Roehampton can augment their academic top-up degree with Lithan Academy’s competency-based curriculum and skilled-based delivery for delivering bachelor and master work-study degrees to incubate digital talents, including digital marketers & software developers.
According to eduCLaaS’ Founder and CEO, Mr Leslie Loh, “Our undergraduate learners start their work-study journey with an intensive digital skilling boot camp for acquiring work-ready skills to support digital career induction in 12 months. For the next 3 years, our learner will join the industry as a full-time paid apprentice for work-integrated learning with employers in our Pan-Asia connected learning ecosystem. With 3 years of learning integrated work, we expect more than 80% of our cohort to earn more than their tuition before graduation for a highly affordable work2learn journey.”
