Global IT solutions provider, Tata Consultancy Services has entered into a strategic business partnership with Klik2learn, a leading provider of online training courses for the English language. Glasgow-based Klik2learn has signed an agreement with Tata Consultancy Services, to deliver mobile digital learning for non-native speakers of English. The company’s products are now available on the TCS Digital iON Hub which covers a wide range of territories throughout the world.
Klik2learn fills a gap in the global market for learners who want to combine an engaging digital experience with an accredited certificate. The company’s core product, ‘Journey 2 English’ can fast track learners to exam success and has been described by one Scottish FE College as a ‘phenomenal’ resource.
Unlike many language learning apps, ‘Journey 2 English’ comes complete with an online dictionary and a simple grammar guide among its range of digital tools. On completion, learners automatically receive not one but two valuable certificates. Klik2learn has gained approval not only from the Continuous Professional Development Service, to issue a certificate but also from City & Guilds, through their Assured programme. The City & Guilds certificate comes complete with a Digital Credentials Badge which the learner can share on social media or on CVs.
Tata Consultancy Services have ambitious plans for the education sector globally and are currently rolling out the first phase of their aim to digitise the whole examination landscape by eliminating paper- based assessments.
Klik2learn is uniquely placed to provide English language training to both corporate and education clients and can leverage the expertise and scale of TCS IT infrastructure to offer real -time video conferencing and tutor support.
The company is also partnering with City College Glasgow to deliver a ground- breaking new mobile product for learners who have no knowledge of English whatsoever. ‘Journey 2 Basic Skills’ is aiming to tackle the range of inequalities resulting from illiteracy, by teaching people to read, write and gain basic numeracy skills through their mobile phones. The project has the support of the UFI Trust and is currently being tested in a number of locations throughout the UK.
