MANILA | MUMBAI, September 16, 2020 — Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has partnered with the Philippines Department of Education, Cordillera Administrative Region, to help students improve their technology skills through the global TCS initiative, goIT.

TCS explained that the goal of the goIT program is to demystify computer science and enthuse students to pursue STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education and become tomorrow’s technology leaders. It introduces students to design thinking, digital technologies, and the agile methodology to develop and prototype solutions that improve their communities or support the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. The engaging curriculum includes the innovation lifecycle, product prototyping, and industry-relevant entrepreneurial skills. TCS employees will mentor students and provide industry context and real-world connections.

The three-day goIT program will get implemented in 20 schools across six provinces of the Cordillera region. The program, meant for third and fourth-year high school students, will start in the last week of September with the first school, Cordillera Regional Science High School, located in Benguet.

“True to our vision of promoting quality education for every Filipino, TCS’ goIT program will facilitate the learning of much-needed technology skills. It will develop our Cordilleran learners and contribute to improving their communities,” said May Eclar, Regional Director of the Department of Education, Cordillera Administrative Region.

“We are excited to launch the goIT program and impart knowledge and skills in science and technology to Filipino students and lay the foundation for the nation’s digital workforce of the future. Through this program, we will reach students in the farthest areas, helping them contribute to their communities’ development,” said Shiju Varghese, Country Head, TCS Philippines.

goIT is TCS’s flagship student engagement program across North America, LATAM (Latin America), Europe, Asia Pacific, and Australia. It is tailored to meet local communities’ specific needs. The program is estimated to have reached over 12,000 students worldwide in FY 2020.
