The Global Skilling Initiative offers different courses and trainings within Microsoft’s Skills for Jobs and Income strategy, such as literacy courses, fundamental skills and career offerings.

For the first case, they focus on teaching basic concepts to people who have no knowledge about the use of the Internet, access to online information, creation and management of digital content, cybersecurity and online responsibility. This is how Microsoft aspires to create alternative, flexible and accessible paths to job opportunities.
