New Delhi 1: In recognition of the need to facilitate career guidance for young learners, the UK’s leading personalized career guidance program is launching in India. LaunchMyCareer (LMC) has unveiled a first-of-its-kind career focused program for schools. The platform promises to help young learners discover their interests, identify their potential, learn workplace readiness skills and apply these in real life. From nurturing young peoples’ skills and aptitudes to providing them age-appropriate exposure to career knowledge, LaunchMyCareer helps students make informed career decisions.
Most learners are overwhelmed and confused about what career they want to pursue, and how to be what they want to be. However, everyone is looking for career success. True career success is an amalgamation of financial stability and job satisfaction. This can be achieved when one is able to map interests and skills with available opportunities. LaunchMyCareer brings forth a unique gamified experience to enable young people the chance to explore career possibilities through a journey of self-discovery, harmonizing interests with future careers and helping them to acquire requisite skills. It is a comprehensive solution that unifies career guidance and preparation into a seamless experience. The platform brings together educators, counsellors and experts to steer students along a career roadmap, under parental guidance, in a systematic, experiential and engaging way.
LaunchMyCareer is backed by Dev Clever, a market leader in career development with a presence across the UK and Europe, and Veative Labs (Pvt) Ltd, a trailblazing organization that provides immersive solutions for enterprise and education in more than 20 countries across the globe. As part of the launch, LMC has partnered with NISA (National Independent School Alliance) to bridge the careers gap in India by integrating a world-first, direct-to-consumer subscription service. The partnership will see NISA schools recommend the curriculum-aligned learning afforded by LaunchMyCareer as the platform-of-choice to its 70,000 schools, which are attended by approximately 13 million students.
Speaking about the launch Mr. Ankur Aggarwal, Veative CEO, states, “We are both excited and humbled to be working with Dev Clever, a market leader in career development, and NISA, a massively influential body working hard to affect real, lasting change in the lives of Indian youths. Our contribution to this endeavour is to add a unique immersive learning element to enable a true understanding of what some career choices entail, plus some real learning in that area of interest.”
With the changing paradigm in these trying times, the education ecosystem is in a state of flux. A hybrid of in-person and remote learning is the new reality facing educators, providing both a mammoth challenge as well as a unique opportunity. LMC’s anywhere-anytime accessibility, coupled with immersive tools to discover unique careers, helps to unlock individual potential. Linking real time employers and institutions, while offering resources to help make better-informed decisions, will open a plethora of opportunities for young people. The objective of LaunchMyCareer is to be the comprehensive CEIAG (Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance) platform-of-choice across India.
