The technology sector needs to grow. According to IDC, Salesforce and its ecosystem of partners and customers will generate 300,000 new jobs in the UK by 2022. Finding those new employees is of pressing concern to us and is a challenge in every technology boardroom.
The tools to develop this future workforce exist right now. We need to build confidence across our economy that a career in technology can take many forms and that free online learning makes it possible for everyone to make the jump.
This tech skills gap isn’t just an economic issue, it needs a cultural shift. These are accessible jobs, for everyone. It's time to set learning free.
Salesforce is launching a dedicated campaign to build awareness of Trailhead, proving its accessibility for everyone through a network of partners and curated courses developed to make learning easier, no matter your skill level.
Trailhead, our online learning tool, can take you from a low level of technical knowledge into a Salesforce role in as little as six months. The tailor made, modular learning system provides routes in to critical roles, from Salesforce administrators, to marketers and coders.
We’re supporting the campaign with a pledge to increase the number of credentialed Salesforce learners to 250,000 by 2022 across Europe. Being credentialed means you are accredited to Salesforce admin status. We'll do that through partnership with organisations such as Supermums.
Supermums trains mothers in Salesforce CRM, offering a route to a rewarding, well-paid, flexible job that fits around family life. Part of Economic Change, the Supermums programme works to drive a positive change in society, offering training, coaching and work experience to build confidence and work skills.
With our new campaign, you can take control over your own training and teach yourself the skills that will help you land that new job, promotion orpay rise. Learning is a lifelong commitment, and adult training courses can have a big impact on your long-term job prospects. So join our community and blaze your own trail today with Trailhead.
