How EdTech can help make India a Global Talent Hub

India is a hub for IT and global R&D. It is also an emerging super power. Despite having added so many feathers to its cap, India continues to go backwards when it comes to education and skill-based training. While the government has made basic education free to all, the question lies in the quality of the education.

 EdTech as a Solution to Bridge the Skill Gap

How EdTech can help make India a Global Talent Hub

Indians often prefer to travel abroad in search of better education to maximize their potential. The skill and education gap can be owed to Indian curriculum being majorly theoretical in nature. The lack of practical application-based learning is a major cause of the gap between skill and education.

 EdTech as a Solution to Bridge the Skill Gap

 Indian students have to spend lakhs of rupees on foreign education and skill-based training. Yet this still makes education unavailable, inaccessible and unaffordable for many. While those who secure scholarships or those who are financially secure may travel abroad to study, the same cannot be said to the general populace.

This is where EdTech comes into the picture. Less than 2 decades ago, online education seemed like a dream for many. But today, it is revolutionizing the world. People no longer need to travel abroad to study as they can obtain the same education at home via a computer.

EdTech’s Contribution to Make India a Global Talent Hub

 EdTechs have the potential to turn into a global talent hub and also a global education hub. Going forward, NASSCOM (National Association of Software and Services Companies) estimates that by 2025 the demand for advanced skills will increase by 20X. This gives India a great opportunity to capture the global education market.
