Siemens launches digitalisation academy to address skills shortage

EducationGermanyTop Stories

Siemens is launching an academy for continuing education that will focus on technical up and reskilling.

At 19 regional training centres across Germany, the SiTecSkills Academy will make a comprehensive, certified portfolio of qualification measures available in new areas of digitalisation and sustainability. This initiative aims to enhance employee skillsets to meet the requirements of Digital Transformation within the work environment.

The Academy primarily aims to provide training to employees in manufacturing, service, sales, finance, controlling and business support functions. In doing so, the SiTecSkills Academy supplements the portfolio offered by the Siemens Professional Education training unit by providing targeted occupational and technical learning opportunities.

Thus, the Academy seamlessly fits into Siemens’ existing continuing education offerings. The new aspect is that this offering is available to both internal and external partners within the learning ecosystem.

“Through targeted up and reskilling, we can ensure that the competencies of our people are always up to date,” said Judith Wiese, Chief People and Sustainability Officer and member of the Managing Board at Siemens AG. “In this way, we’re not only ensuring their long-term employability, but also our company’s long-term competitiveness.

“Since the ‘shelf life’ of knowledge is rapidly shortening in today’s world, in particular in the areas of IT and digitalisation, we need to continuously integrate lifelong learning as a fundamental element within our work processes. The personal motivation and great eagerness to learn that our people display show us that we’re on the right track in this regard.”
