Earlier this week, Microsoft unveiled a new global digital skills initiative in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the wave of job losses worldwide.

The initiative was launched in partnership with LinkedIn Learning and GitHub. It offers a range of free learning paths for the most in-demand jobs, as identified by LinkedIn job openings.

The learning paths cover a range of digital jobs, many of which can also be done remotely or from home.

Microsoft also unveiled learning paths for managers to improve their managerial skills and awareness around racial injustice and discrimination in the workplace.

These courses include resources from LinkedIn Learning, Microsoft Learn, and the GitHub Learning Lab.

You can access the learning paths on opportunity.linkedin.com, where they’re available in English, French, German, and Spanish.

According to the website, these courses will be available until 31 March, 2021.
