Empowering MSMEs with digital learning solutions for sustainable growth
We are proud to be partnering with the Asia Pacific Business Trade Association (ABTA) to empower Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) business owners in South East and South Asia, with management and business skills training to help sustain their businesses and competitive edge during the current challenging economic climate.
MSMEs in Asia, make up more than 96% of all Asian businesses, and provide two out of three private sector jobs, but they often lack skills and resources to build sustainable and resilient businesses.
Starting 27 October to 22 December, 22 micro, small and medium enterprise owners will attend a learning and development programme, powered by Pearson Learning Hub.
Pearson Learning Hub is a workplace skill learning platform for every employer. The world of work is changing and so is on-the-job learning. Employers are increasingly demanding flexible ways for their employees to study in order to upskill and progress. The content on Learning Hub is based on real world work scenarios. It's interactive and bite-sized and can be accessed anywhere on a mobile device or laptop. In addition, the reporting and analytics tools will provide a wealth of performance analysis, enabling individuals to monitor and adapt their learning programmes and view performance.
ABTA and Pearson have embarked on this Pilot Programme to cater to the needs of the MSMEs, especially essential in these challenging times and are confident that the benefits to these businesses are manifold, including upskilling and training to adapt to the new economy, better positioning of their company and more effective management of their staff.
