Guatemala is in a strategic point in the region for the American market, only a few hours away from one of the largest economies in the world. Human capital with English language skills is currently growing, but it is too small to cover the Contact Center & BPO industry demand that has been generated. This is why NEARSOL is creating the NEARSOL English Academy; where it’s expecting to find a balance between offer and demand.
The academy plans to graduate at least 50 people every 6 weeks at no cost to them and with no forceful employment obligation like other companies are currently doing.
The team responsible for the implementation of the project designed a model where students only requirement is to attend classes. Through the NEARSOL Foundation it will sponsor 100% of the cost of these scholarship programs. The academy offers a unique opportunity for those with the desire to succeed in learning a second language. “350 Scholarships have been granted for 2017 giving a social purpose to our academy” states Victor Rogel, NEARSOL CFO.
At NEARSOL Academy we are aware that speaking English is a very important requirement in these modern times, and it’s becoming an indispensable and necessary tool at work for anyone that wishes to expand their careers. We also know that it will create a big impact in the Guatemalan economy by introducing new human capital into the market.
