Cloud Computing Artificial Intelligence Cybersecurity Among High Demand Courses Report
The Edunet Foundation’s Annual Impact Report reveals that technology training programs have gained momentum in India over the past two years.
The Edunet Foundation, an Indian non-profit organization that promotes technical competence, technological innovation and entrepreneurship in youth, recently released its annual impact report. The report provides interesting information on technology-based educational programs in the country.
According to the report, about 1 lakh of youth from neglected communities enrolled in Edunet to run skills-based programs in India. Areas such as cloud computing, artificial intelligence, and cybersecurity were in high demand among young learners. Most students come from environments where there is no quality experiential education. This gap creates a disparity in the acquisition of jobs in the last mile where they tend to miss out on the opportunities that the new job market is creating.
The Edunet Impact Report highlights that:
- 27,530 school students (mostly between standards 7 and 12) enrolled in online programs had the opportunity to obtain industry-supported credentials.
- More than 100,000 adult students signed up and participated in programs supported by the Edunet Foundation on technology skills, with professional support.
- More than 20,000 students from more than 4,700 schools benefited from mentoring through an online platform supported by the organization.
- With 43 institutes and 298 completed projects, the Tech Saksham program has affected more than 2,400 women students and helped them acquire future skills to reward technology careers.
All Edunet Foundation-supported programs aim to equip students with the basic skills needed to succeed in the emerging workforce.
With its presence in India, the Edunet Foundation improves student employability, promotes technological innovation and creates an entrepreneurial ecosystem in India. Students have access to a variety of global and local resources that allow them to combine global knowledge and their local context to create a unique, experiential learning experience.
“Self-paced courses, well-designed, personalized learning pathways: these are the reasons why the Skillsbuild platform works so well for me. The factor that binds all of this together to really help us apply the concepts we learn about science “The data prediction model we created as part of the camps using real-time data helped us learn the ropes in a practical way.” – Riya Gupta, Krishna Engineering College
“Mentoring has always been an important way for me to learn, as I find it very effective. The program combined mentoring, relevant skills training and women’s empowerment in a balanced way for me. “The program has been open and one that exceeds my inhibitions. The program helped me clarify an interview with TCS, with the knowledge gained about Python libraries.” – Kirti Mandal, GEC Bharuch
