Simplilearn, AICTE to Partner, Provide Technology Education

Simplilearn, the global online skilling programs provider, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) for a Ministry of Education initiative, called the National Educational Alliance for Technology (NEAT 2.0). The collaboration is aimed at upskilling higher education students from Indian engineering and technical institutes.

This unique initiative by Simplilearn will benefit millions of students. As part of the MoU, Simplilearn will offer six programs in data science, DevOps engineering, business analysis, big data engineering, big data Hadoop, and spark development, and AWS big data certification training on the NEAT 2.0 platform.

This partnership will allow NEAT —a public-private partnership model initiated by the Ministry of Education, Government of India, and the Education Technology companies of India — to use key e-learning content from Simplilearn’s programs/ live learning platform to provide the students with a high-quality learning experience in digital skills and technologies. Aligned with the Government’s mission to increase technology adoption and virtual learning in higher education, the collaboration will endeavor to create a future-ready workforce by leveraging the power of technology.

As Krishna Kumar, founder and CEO, Simplilearn, rightly says, “One of the main concerns of organizations over the years is that they don’t get a ready-to-work, skilled workforce at the entry-level.” With this collaboration with AICTE the adoption of virtual learning by students will get a boose, and “the gap that exists between industry and academia will be bridged” as the skilling challenges of students will be overcome.

The six programs have been designed carefully to help students understand the concepts while they are studying. The students will be able to access “a boot camp-style learning model with video-based content, live instructor-led classes, labs for practice, and hands-on projects. Learners will have access to comprehensive programs created by top industry experts, which will enhance their skill sets and help advance their careers,” adds Kumar.

Buddha Chandrasekhar, chief coordinating officer of All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), points out, ” The job market is flooded with resumes, but only the ones with the right skills are getting into the companies of their choice. As the skill development ecosystem is evolving to a hybrid model, we are happy to partner with Simplilearn to provide students with a rich repository of high-quality, self-paced learning content for their professional development.”
