New Delhi: India has become an emerging land for technical education over the past decade. It has shown opportunities in terms of manufacturing and business operation. To achieve the target it has started gearing up its technical skills for the same. In this, The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) is playing a big role.

As the Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation (MOSPI) provided data, suggest GDP from manufacturing increased to Rs. 5914.75 billion in the fourth quarter of 2021 from Rs. 5867.75 billion in the third quarter of 2021. Now, it’s necessary to bring some new initiatives which would be helpful for a younger generation to get a job in the market of technical knowledge. In the same direction to make the opportunities fruitful for the technical students, AICTE has already taken several steps.

Over this Chief Coordinating Officer, AICTE, Buddha Chandrasekhar said, “given the abundance of High IQ and manpower talent India has, the next step forward for education sector would be to connect right applicants to skill trainers and varied courses providing specialisation on emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, BlockChain, Big Data, Cloud Computing, and so on and so forth.”

Buddha Chandrasekhar expressed that at this point everyone knows India’s a hub for technical-minded people as well as companies in Bengaluru and Hyderabad which are popularly known as start-up destinations. Now through AICTE’S latest initiative, we are looking forward to creating job providers and skill trainers at every nook and corner of the country in which our government also participating very actively.

Speaking about AICTE’s yet to be launched programme, called ‘ABCDEFGHI’, he said, “This is going to help youngsters from Class 7 to Graduation level for internships opportunities on the AICTE’s platform. Here, I am sure that would provide them with numerous opportunities necessary to build a future entrepreneur.”

Talking about the importance of ‘ABCDEFGHI’ he explained, “There is no dearth of talent here in India. But what we lack is awareness. A child who might know more about AI or drone technology than you and I, might not know how to access the necessary skills for it. This is why we conceptualized ‘ABCDEFGHI’. It is to teach our youngsters the ABCs of upcoming, future technologies.”

AICTE’s yet to be launched initiative ‘ABCDEFGHI’ not only connected concerned students to the skill training and internship opportunities but also brings onboard thousands of established companies as well as start-ups to hire the future-ready talent pool.
