Under the Ministry of Skills Development and Entrepreneurship, the Directorate General of Training (DGT) has joined forces with Microsoft and the NASSCOM Foundation to offer digital learning material to students at industrial training institutes (ITIs).
This digitized e-learning module will support nearly 1,20,000 students in about 3000 ITIs across India through the Bharatskills portal.
We aim to impact thousands of students through the DGT-Microsoft partnership by allowing digitalization in education and hope that it will soon hit more students and teachers," said Minister of Skills Mahendra Nath Pandey." "These new learning initiatives will empower young learners with technical and market-oriented skills, as the pandemic is a compelling fast-track digital transition," Minister Pandey said.
In the last two years, DGT has worked with many front liners in the digital industry, such as IBM India, SAP India, Cisco Systems India, Accenture Solutions and Quest Alliance, Adobe, SSC-NASSCOM, etc., to enable students to become ready for industry.
