A lifecycle of learning with SAP

SAP Learning site offers free access to courses so anyone can build in-demand development skills

SAP launches an all-new SAP Learning site to help narrow the developer skills gap by reaching learners where and how they learn best. The new Website delivers the right content at the right time to SAP developers at all levels, enabling a broad universe of users to create solutions that increase productivity, employee retention, and customer satisfaction. Created with a straightforward, intuitive design, the new SAP Learning site lets learners quickly upskill or reskill in key innovation areas for free.


The site's free courses prepare users for certification in SAP BTP - for example, in developing with SAP Extension Suite - and include topics such as citizen development and SAP’s new low-code/no-code offerings. Professional developers will also benefit as SAP continues to expand the scope of the free content. SAP Learning brings together a portfolio of well-established learning offerings, including the openSAP platform and SAP Learning Hub, on one comprehensive site. In doing so, SAP Learning offers a new way for anyone within the ecosystem to develop SAP skills, get certified, and stay current.


SAP now partners with Placement to connect SAP skills development directly to professional progress. The first 1,000 developers who complete a certification exam on SAP BTP through the new SAP Learning Site will receive credit for free services including resume and LinkedIn profile screening as well as career coaching. All registered learners on the SAP Learning site will receive 25% off select Placement services and access to Placement’s job board (promotion valid through Nov. 25, 2022).

SAP Young Thinkers introduces a new AI curriculum for secondary schools

SAP announces an AI curriculum for secondary schools through a partnership between its initiative for schools, the SAP Young Thinkers program, and its educational partner Wissensfabrik. In Q4 2021, teachers can download the IT2School AI modules in German. An English version launches in early 2022.


The modules’ simple structure lets teachers implement the curriculum in classrooms with little prior training. The development is a public-private collaboration in partnership between the University of Oldenburg, the Free University Berlin, and the Wissensfabrik network of which SAP is a member.


The modules were developed as an extension to the existing Wissensfabrik IT2School modules and complement the massive open line course (MOOC) on artificial intelligence freely available on the openSAP platform.

SAP intends to expand School 42 collaboration to develop nontraditional programming talent at Berlin campus

SAP and its university and school programs — SAP University Alliances and SAP Young Thinkers — announce a plan to expand their collaboration with School 42. SAP aspires to collaborate with School 42 and other founding partners, including Volkswagen, Cariad, Bayer, T-Systems, Capgemini, and Microsoft, to open a new location in Berlin to boost digital education in the German capital. SAP intends to contribute learning content, experiences, projects, and finances to the Berlin campus, which is the latest addition to a roster of School 42 campuses, including locations in Silicon Valley and Heilbronn.


School 42 is a private, nonprofit, tuition-free network of programming schools that fosters new and innovative approaches to learning. The school believes in open standards and radical inclusion, judging applicants on their talent rather than their acquired degrees or certificates. Launched in Paris in 2013, the School 42 network now encompasses 30 schools on five continents. Applicants must be at least 18 years of age.
