AICTE and Skillible’s new digital initiative aims to reskill and upskill one million Indian pupils

May 21, New Delhi In order to upskill and reskill one million students and professionals in new-age technologies in India, the Ministry of Education’s All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) teamed up with experiential learning technology platform Skillible on Tuesday to launch a novel initiative called SAMBAV (Skillible’s Academic Model for Business-to-Academic Ventures).

With aspirational plans to expand into other in-demand technology domains, the SAMBAV program will initially offer specialization in software development, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, and salesforce development, guaranteeing students stay on the cutting edge of emerging trends and innovations.

Ankur Goel, the founder of Skillible, said, “With SAMBAV, we are paving the way for a future where technical education transcends traditional boundaries, empowering students to become architects of innovation and catalysts of progress.”

With its industry-aligned curriculum, project-based learning, virtual internships, interactive sessions, and ongoing assessment, this innovative program is set to revolutionize technical education and provide one million students and professionals with skills that are relevant to the workplace.

The AICTE said that by giving students real-world experience, its internship platform, which now has 48 lakh internships and 4.8 crore registered students, would support the SAMBAV program.

According to Chandrasekhar Buddha, AICTE’s Chief Coordinating Officer, the organization would support “nurturing a future-ready workforce that can drive innovation, spur growth, and propel the technology sector to new heights.”

Participants will get a joint certification from Skillible and AICTE after completing the extensive program successfully. This certification will attest to their technical skill, industrial preparedness, and dedication to excellence.

According to the Ministry of Education’s standards, learners who successfully complete the program will also get credit points, according to the firm.
