On Kiron Campus, we host a variety of programs for personal, academic and professional growth. One of our programmes is the Google IT Support Professional Certificate, a 5-course certificate developed by Google that aims to prepare students for entry-level roles in IT Support. Google.org is supporting Kiron to provide students with free access to the programme and provide them with the chance to take part in complimentary online tutorials with a trained facilitator. Kiron is part of a broad international network of provider , led by our partner Jobs for the Future (JFF) in the United States, to learn from best practice in the field, refine program design and drive innovation.
After piloting blended learning classes for 15 highly motivated students in 2018 in Berlin, we have successfully scaled our model and provided online and offline tutorials to over 50 students in 2019. Students can also take the courses without participating in the additional tutorials. Globally, more than 600 Kiron students from more than 50 different countries have enrolled in the program; 47% of them have finished at least one course.
