In an endeavour to help businesses across the globe digitally recover from COVID-19, Rolls-Royce, the market leader in high- performance power systems, has allowed free access to its digital academy. It is publishing its digital skills training programme that can benefit all those who wish to learn new skills for future jobs.
The first suite of courses includes introduction to data science, artificial intelligence, machine learning, coding and digital culture. With these training courses, the Company has managed to train 20,000 of its own employees in the last two years.
There is no age for learning, and Rolls-Royce seems to believe in this concept. These training courses will be helpful to anybody affected by this disruptive period of isolation and will encourage them to remain occupied and learn new skills to become future ready.
The Company has formed an alliance with some of the leading technology companies, such as Google, IBM, Learning Tree and TeenTech to accelerate new ways of recovery from the pandemic.
In an official statement, Manisha Mistry, head of the Digital Academy at Rolls-Royce, said, “People and businesses are experiencing incredibly tough circumstances and these free training packages are a tangible way for us to offer some help. Many have been tried and tested by Rolls-Royce employees themselves. They can help people prepare for work and businesses transform and be ready for a digital future, just like we’ve been doing at Rolls-Royce for the last couple of years.”
In 2019, the Company invested around $1.45 billion on research and development.
Rolls-Royce has a customer base in over 150 countries, which includes more than 400 airlines and leasing customers, 160 armed forces, 70 navies, and more than 5,000 power and nuclear customers.
