Platform by Per Scholas

In June 2017, Per Scholas launched our newest social venture.

Platform by Per Scholas, officially opened its doors to continue the Per Scholas mission by upskilling underemployed individuals and prepare them to be job-ready tech professionals.

Platform is designed to ensure students are equipped with the skills they need to get hired at the end of its 8-10 week courses. Through our first partnership with Cognizant Technology Solutions, Platform by Per Scholas develops customized curriculum to prepare local students for competitive careers at the Fortune 200 company. Cognizant has committed to interviewing all eligible Platform graduates, an exciting and motivating detail that reinforces our commitment to bridging the gap between our students and the careers they want.

Earlier this summer, Platform announced its premiere courses Quality Engineering & Application Value Management. The difference?  Quality Engineering prepares students to understand, analyze and troubleshoot business and technical requirements using leading open source tools and methodologies to automate testing and to deliver value on web applications and mobile apps as software testers and analysts. Application Support Management teaches students how to implement Cognizant’s software management and support services for their clients by improving and managing client systems without disrupting the organization’s current operations. Additionally, students will learn how to work across software, manage business solutions and improve business efficiencies as a consultant and engineer.
